It’s a wet Friday night for high school football playoff games. We’re going to get to 21 games on the Football Frenzy – watch us at 10 PM on WXSP and at 11 PM on WOOD for the playoff highlights. Tomorrow is the big Michigan-Michigan State game at East Lansing. It’s a nationally televised game and you can see the game on WOTV4 at 3:30 PM. The two teams each have one loss on the season and are ranked #21 (MI) and #22 (MSU) in the BCS standings. It’ll be mostly cloudy and cool in East Lansing, with about a 50/50 chance of a brief period of very light rain. Temperatures will be in the mid-upper 40s. WOTV4 has 3 football games on Saturday. The Noon game features my Wisconsin Badgers taking on Iowa and the evening is a Florida showdown between Miami (#7) and Florida State (#3). Both of those teams are undefeated. Both Western and Central have a bye week. Wayne St. takes on Ferris St. at Noon and at 7 PM Hillsdale and Grand Valley clash in Allendale. While there is a chance of a sprinkle there, odds favor cloudy, dry and cool conditions.
The Lions also have a bye week. The Sunday night game is Indianapolis at Houston on WOOD-TV at 8:30 PM. The Monday night game is Da Bears at Lambeau Field to take on the Packers. NASCAR is at the Texas Motor Speedway.
