4. Soccer: CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying-Guetamala @ Team USA (Tuesday 7pm from Kansas City live on ESPN2); MLS-Columbus Crew @ DC United (Saturday 7:30pm from RFK Stadium live on Comcast SportsNet); College Soccer: Colgate @ Maryland (Tuesday 7:30pm Ludwig Field), North Carolina @ Maryland (Friday 6pm from Ludwig Field live on ESPNU)

Oh God thank you for saving us last week Eddie Johnson…

Just need one point against Guatemala to clinch advancing. PLEASE don’t screw this up.

3. Mixed Martial Arts: Shogun Fights VII (Saturday 7pm 1st Mariner Arena)

After UFC 153, Fabio Maldonado had to go to the hospital due to the beating he suffered at the hands of Glover Teixeira. When he got there, he had a doctor waiting for him who hadn’t had too difficult of an evening…

That’s Anderson Silva. I probably should have told you that was Anderson Silva. Totally my fault.

2. College Football: North Carolina State @ Maryland (Saturday 3:30pm from Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium live on ESPNU); Indiana @ Navy (Saturday 3:30pm from Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium live on CBS Sports Network); Old Dominion @ Towson (Saturday 7pm from Unitas Stadium live on; Morgan State @ Howard (Saturday 1pm Greene Stadium); Wilkes @ Stevenson (Saturday 12pm Mustang Stadium); Gettysburg @ Johns Hopkins (Friday 7pm Homewood Field); Kansas State @ West Virginia (Saturday 7pm from Morgantown, WV live on FX)

I have so many NC State-Maryland related thoughts. Like…LEEEEROOOOYYYYY AMMMMBUSH!

And also, this made me chuckle. I imagine K-State is preparing appropriately…

1. NFL: Baltimore Ravens @ Houston Texans (Sunday 1pm from Houston live on CBS)

Oh snap-I wonder if Connor Barwin will keep his Cosmo Kramer ‘do for this one?

(Thanks, The Big Lead.)

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
