Reliant Stadium will be buzzing for CONCACAF's Gold Cup Semifinal games tonight, and the saying "everything is bigger in Texas" is spot on when describing the magnitude of tonight's games.  

Mexican and American fans alike are flocking to Houston in thousands to glimpse what might be the makings of a dream final between USA and Mexico in the Rose Bowl.  

Panama vs. USA

The Americans will be looking for revenge against the team they suffered their first ever defeat to in group play.  Although Altidore is out for the rest of the tournament, the US will be unfazed and they will savor revenge.  They will also be looking to improve on their strong game against Jamaica.  Prediction: 2-0 USA

Honduras vs. Mexico

The Mexicans have been stellar throughout the tournament, winning every game.  Their goal difference of +14 throughout the tournament is unrivaled.  Honduras has had a good run, but with the likes of Chicharito up top, they will be hard pressed to come away with the victory.  Prediction: 3-0 Mexico
