Weekend Sports Thread Oct. 19-20

  GVSU logo  The GVSU (8-2)/Saginaw Valley (9-1) game today in Allendale is huge.  Lubbers Field will be rockin’.  That’s a 1 PM game.  Ferris State has a home game against Northern Michigan.  Michigan State has a big match-up with Nebraska.  That game’s at 3:30 PM on WOTV4.   CMU (3-6) is at WMU (1-9).  Both teams desperately looking for a win.   Michigan heads to Evanston, IL to take on Northwestern, a team that has had too many injuries and a disappointing Big Ten season so far.  My Badgers should get a win over Indiana in Madison and I’ll be helping my wife root for her alma mater, Illinois (BA and MA) against Ohio State.   The last time Illinois beat Ohio State in Champaign was 1991.  There is a chance of showers at that game.   Stanford and USC tangle on WOTV4 at 8 PM.  Stanford has won the last four games of that match.  Notre Dame is idle this week.  WOOD and Football Frenzy will be covering at least 10 of the high school playoff games today.  The games start at 1 PM with the exception of the Zeeland West game at Mt. Pleasant, which starts at 2 PM.   The games should take place under mild and dry conditions.  Congratulations to Comstock Park and South Christian for their Friday night victories.   In general, we had good weather for the Friday night games this year.   Detroit tries to get their first win at Pittsburgh since 1955 (they’ve lost 9 in a row there).  They will have to watch for a thunderstorm and strong winds at the NFL games Sunday in Chicago and Cincinnati.   The Pistons won one in Sacramento, Michigan St. took way too long to put away Columbia, the Red Wings have lost 7 in a row at home.

    Lets go Tigers! Get the bats going on a pitching gem by Mad Max! Wolverines will get the win and correct some of their issues! Lions should take care of Cincy! Helm is back skating. This will help the Red Wings if he can get all the way back into the line up!
