The Best In Sports In 7 Days

I am dreaming of a New Orleans Saints vs. Tim Tebow Super Bowl.

Thursday, Dec. 8
NFL (7:30 p.m.-11 p.m. NFL Network): The 4-8 Cleveland Browns take on the 9-3 Pittsburgh Steelers. On paper, this game looks like a dog.

Friday, Dec. 9
College basketball (6-8 p.m. ESPN): How do you know it is basketball season? Florida Gators host Rider Broncs on national television. One question: Where the heck is Rider University?

Saturday, Dec. 10
College football (1:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m. CBS): It's as American as apple pie when Army takes on Navy in the final college football game before the bowls start.

Sunday, Dec. 11
NFL (noon-3 p.m. Fox): The New Orleans Saints travel to Tennessee to take on the Titans in a game that could have playoff implications for both teams. ... NFL (7:30 p.m.-11 p.m. NBC): The Dallas Cowboys host the New York Giants in a huge NFC East matchup.

Monday, Dec. 12
NFL (7:30 p.m.-11 p.m. ESPN): Another dog of game on paper, as the 2-10 St. Louis Rams play the 5-7 Seattle Seahawks.

Tuesday, Dec. 13
College basketball (8-10 p.m. ESPN 3/ESPN full court): Florida Atlantic takes on the ranked Mississippi State Bulldogs on the Internet or pay-per-view (if you have it).

Wednesday, Dec. 14
College Basketball (8-10 p.m. ESPN 2): Tennessee Volunteers play the Charleston Cougars on a very slow sports night.

Congratulations to the Southern Miss Golden Eagles for beating Houston and losing $14 million for C-USA.

Delta State continues their playoff march in a semifinal game against Pittsburg State University. A win and the Fighting Okra will play for a Division II Championship for the second year in a row.
