Friday's Big Weekend Preview

1 of 6

    Weeks like this are simple. Is there really a need to convince you to watch sports on TV? NFL, awesome college football games, the World Series—there is plenty of good stuff if you want to stay in and beat that bad weather that's starting to become all the more common. 

    Here's the best stuff of the weekend, all in one place. 

World Series

2 of 6

    When: Saturday (8:05 p.m. ET) and Sunday (8:15 p.m. ET)

    TV: Fox

    Why You Should Watch: So, the ratings haven't been great. But for those who actually have been watching, you were treated to a pair of completely different yet equally righteous games. In one, Pablo Sandoval makes history with three bombs. The other, an oh-so-close pitchers' duel. 

    No reason to think Games 3 and 4 should be any less compelling. 

NASCAR Sprint Cup: Tums Fast Relief 500

3 of 6

    When: Sunday, 1 p.m. (ET)

    TV: ESPN

    Why You Should Watch: This race is at Martinsville, which is the shortest track on the circuit at a little more than half a mile. Yup, a half-mile. You warmed up running longer distances in ninth grade PE. Yet, they take 43 cars with 900 horsepower and let them go at it. 

    Yeah, there's crashes. And, yes, real racing, too. Like the Chase for the Sprint Cup (NASCAR's playoffs), which Brad Keselowski (pictured) is leading. 

Manchester United vs. Chelsea

4 of 6

    When: Sunday, 11:30 a.m. (ET)

    TV: FOX soccer

    Why You Should Watch: The popularity of European soccer, especially the EPL, is on a rocket-ship-like rise in the U.S., and a big reason why is because of traditionally popular clubs like these two. Worth a watch, especially for those East Coasters who need something to do before NFL kicks off. 

College Football Saturday

5 of 6

    Broadcast on seemingly every channel that can afford a camera and a satellite truck, Saturday's loaded college-football wise. Here are the can't-miss games. (All times ET)

    • No. 2 Florida at No. 10 Georgia, 3:30 p.m., CBS
    • No. 14 Texas Tech at No. 3 Kansas State, 3:30 p.m., FOX
    • No. 5 Notre Dame at No. 8 Oklahoma

NFL Sunday

6 of 6

    All day Sunday on FOX, CBS and NBC, which you already know. You also already know when your team is playing, and the teams that have your big-time fantasy players. Plus, it's the NFL—you know you have to watch.

    But, yeah, still. You should especially watch the Saints vs. Broncos night game. Never ignore a Peyton vs. Brees shootout.
