As we head into the holiday season, the sports calendar is still full of great events. In looking at this weekend’s slate of games, we see another weekend packed full of great sports action. Let’s take a look at the top sporting events for the upcoming weekend.
We can’t forget the NASCAR Cup Series champion being crowned this weekend as well. Let’s take a look at this weekend’s top sporting events.
Top Sports Events for This Weekend – November 19 – November 20
With three to six feet of snow scheduled to hit Buffalo this weekend, the NFL made the decision to move the Bills vs. Browns game to Detroit. It will be an odd site to see these two playing at Ford Field, but the game will go on.
Buffalo is looking to rebound from their devastating overtime loss at home to the Vikings, while Cleveland is looking to earn a signature win over one of the best teams in the league.
If the season were to end today, the Patriots and the Jets would both be in the AFC playoffs. These two will square off in Foxboro on Sunday.
Bill Belichick has made things difficult for Jets quarterback Zach Wilson in their previous matchups, and we have no doubt that he’ll continue to do that. The Patriots’ offense has struggled, and the Jets have one of the best defenses in the league.
The Dallas Cowboys will head to Minnesota to take on the Vikings. At 8-1, the Vikings are tied with the Eagles for the best record in the league.
They’ve won a lot of close games, so we’ll see how they handle the tough Dallas Cowboys defense. Dallas’s offense has also been very good since Dak Prescott returned, so this should be a very good game.
The Pac-12 Highlights the College Football Weekend
It’s not often that an SEC game isn’t the top game of the weekend, but this weekend is different. Two Pac-12 games highlight this weekend’s slate of games. Both games have huge implications on the Pac-12 championship race, which could lead to national title implications.
In Los Angeles, USC will meet UCLA. This one will be at the Rose Bowl, but we expect the crowd to be pro-USC in this one. With a win, the Trojans guarantee themselves a spot in the Pac-12 title game.
UCLA lost a shocker to Arizona last weekend, so now they’re looking to play spoiler and knock their cross-town rivals out of playoff contention.
The other big game will feature the Utah Utes and the Oregon Ducks. Utah has been on a roll as of late, and now they’ll head to Autzen to take on the Ducks.
With their two losses, Oregon and Utah are out of the national title hunt, but whoever wins this game will more than likely earn a berth in the conference championship game.
Overshadowed by the NFL, NBA, and college football, college hoops season is now in full swing.
On Sunday, we’ll see a matchup between two of the top programs in the country, as the Kentucky Wildcats will make the long journey to the state of Washington to take on the Gonzaga Bulldogs.
These two teams are loaded with five-star prospects and great athletes. Both teams like to play up-tempo basketball, so this should be a fun matchup to watch.
