Stay Tuned: Week of November 4th

By Brett Malamud

This is the first of a weekly article that will provide you with the most intriguing games in sports for the upcoming week. If yesterday’s football games proved anything, it was that this is going to be an exciting week in sports. So let’s get to it! Here is the first installment of Stay Tuned:  

NBA:

With the first week in the books, the second week of the NBA season looks to be just as exciting.

Chicago Bulls vs. Indiana Pacers, Wednesday November 6th 7:00 PM EST, ESPN

Two of the top teams in the Eastern Conference square off in a showdown in Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Derek Rose goes head to head against Paul George and the undefeated Indiana Pacers. This one is a must watch.

LA Clippers vs. Miami Heat, Thursday November 7th 7:00 PM EST, TNT and TSN

The Clippers head into South Beach after the Heat’s rough week last week. The Heat opened up the season going 2-2, and they’ll try to pick up the pace moving forward.

NHL:

Division standings are starting to take form, as we are now one month into the season. 

NY Islanders vs. Washington Capitals Tuesday November 5th 7:00 PM EST, MSG+ and CSN-DC

Two of the brightest stars in the NHL will face off in this epic battle at the Verizon Center. John Tavares leads the Islanders into Washington, where Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals sit at .500 on the season. Only one point separates the teams in the standings, so it should be a good battle.

Pittsburgh Penguins vs. NY Rangers, Wednesday November 6th 7:30 PM EST, NBCSN, TSN2, and RDS2

The Rangers and the Penguins have had bad blood for a while now, and Wednesday night should be no different. Watch these division rivals square off and Madison Square Garden come alive in this week’s Wednesday Night Rivalry.

Montreal Canadians vs. Ottawa Senators, Thursday November 7th 7:00 PM EST, CBC and RDS

There’s nothing as wild as a Canadian clash. The Habs head to the capital city to take on Erik Karlsson and the Senators. A must watch game in Canada. 

NCAA Basketball:

This Friday marks the start of the college basketball season and there are a few games to stay updated on.

(18) UConn vs. Maryland, Friday November 8th 6:30 PM EST, ESPN2

This is sure to be a good game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. A small Maryland team took a hit, losing 7’1” center Alex Len. The Phoenix Suns selected Len fifth overall in this year’s NBA draft. Maryland will face a tough test though, going up against a much bigger UConn Huskies team.

Georgetown vs. (19) Oregon, Friday November 8th 8:00 PM EST, ESPN

Coming off a first round loss to Cinderella story Florida Gulf Coast in last season’s NCAA tournament, it’ll be interesting to see Georgetown without Otto Porter, who was selected by the Washington Wizards as the third overall pick in this year’s NBA Draft. They face number 19 ranked Oregon in the Armed Forces Classic in South Korea

NCAA Football:

(3) Oregon vs. (5) Stanford, Thursday November 7th 9:00 PM EST, ESPN

Not much needs to be said here. The Ducks take on the Cardinal in a heated rivalry matchup.

No Chip Kelly for the Ducks here, but they'll still step up and try to take down Stanford (Via AP)

(13) LSU vs. (1) Alabama, Saturday November 9th 8:00 PM EST, CBS

The Tigers head into Tuscaloosa to go up against the Crimson Tide what should be the college football game of the week
