Weekend Sports ThreadNovember 15th, 2012 at 7:37 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Sports, Weather
Most all of the local teams have home games this weekend. Michigan (7-3) hosts Iowa (4-6) in the Big House at Noon. Michigan is favored and you can watch the game on ESPN. Northwestern (7-3) at Michigan State (5-5) could be the game of the day. That’s also a Noon start and the game is on ESPN2. At 1 PM, Miami (OH) (4-6) takes on Central Michigan 4-6) in Mt. Pleasant. Eastern Michigan (1-9) and Western Michigan (4-7) tangle in Kalamazoo at 2 PM. Wake Forest (5-5) has a tough road game at Notre Dame (10-0). The Fighting Irish have a tougher match against USC (7-3) out in Los Angeles next Saturday night. You can catch the Notre Dame/Wake Forest game on WOOD-TV at 3:30 PM. I’ll also add that my alma mater, Wisconsin (7-3) – has a big game against Ohio State (10-0). Wisconsin’s 3 losses have come by only 3 points each and with home field advantage, that could be a close game. That game will be on WOTV4 at 3:30 PM. We also have the high school playoff games on Saturday. Sunday the Detroit Lions (4-5) host the Green Bay Packers (6-3) on FOX at 1 PM. The weather should be pleasant and dry for all of these games with temperatures in the low-mid 50s. Skies should be partly to mostly sunny for most games in the Great Lakes region.
