Game On! Sports Lineup 8/30/13

A variety of sports to start your long weekend off right! [Live Sports Thread and Blog Recap]

8/30/13 in NCAAF   |   Jess   |   34886 respect

Greetings, sports fans! Quite a busy Friday afternoon we have here in the sports world, with a little something for everyone thrown in. Some MLB teams are sitting comfortably in the playoff race while others are fighting for a Wild Card spot, as still others (ahem...my team) have no shot and are now bringing up prospects for playing time. All of this, and the NCAAF is officially underway! No NFL tonight as the guys rest up for next week's Regular Season kickoff, but we do have some CFL, WNBA, soccer already in progress, racing, tennis, golf, and even a couple of boxing matches set up for Friday Night Fights. 

The blog has also been abuzz.....Raiders' RB Darren McFadden had quite the birthday celebration.....is Tim Tebow's QB career over?.....Geno Smith will likely start Week 1 for the Jets.....as if the Giants needed more injuries; RB Andre Brown suffered a fractured leg last night.....Sports Illustrated ranks Tom Brady #4...behind whom?.....they found Lamar Odom! And arrested him.....Kobe isn't taking it easy.....MMA fans: the Pettis vs. Henderson rematch is finally happening this weekend.....while we've all been watching Cabrera and Davis, Brandon Moss is making waves in Oakland.....the Mariners dealt Michael Morse to Baltimore.....and don't forget to go check out or What's the Difference game this week!  

Let's take a look at what's happening today...(as always, all times eastern.)

My Illini hold on to beat the juggernaut that is the SIU Salukis.  I may have overestimated the ability of this team when I projected them to win 2 games this year

Go Rice.. that is all

The two time defending FCS champions North Dakota State Bison go on the road to Manhattan, Kansas and upset the defending Big 12 champion Kansas State Wildcats.  

Let the games begin
