Spicy 7 – 9/14

Sports Salsa has you covered with the Top 7 games this weekend and where to catch them!

Sports Salsa’s Top 7 Weekend Sports Events
September 14-16, 2018

1. #12 LSU @ #7 Auburn

Saturday, Sept. 15, 3:30 pm ET

TV: CBS
Subscription Radio: SiriusXM 191; TuneIn Premium

The best top 25 matchup of the weekend. Auburn is roughly a 10-point favorite going into the matchup, but this game goes a long way toward any chance of beating Alabama for the SEC West crown.

2. Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers

Sunday, Sept. 16, 1 pm ET

TV: Fox
AM-FM Radio: Westwood One (Find affiliate near you)
Subscription Radio: SiriusXM 389 (Vikings) / 225 (Packers)

Will Aaron Rodgers play? (Of course he will.) Two 1-0 teams face off to grab the lead of the NFC North. Packers get a second consecutive home game at the start of the season. Cousins v Rodgers. Who you got?

3. Los Angeles Dodgers @ St. Louis Cardinals

Saturday, Sept. 15, 1:05 pm ET
TV: Fox
Subscription Radio: SiriusXM 184; TuneIn Premium

The weekend series is critical to these two teams fighting for playoff spots. The Sunday night game is available on ESPN as well.

KC Chiefs Fans
Arrowhead Stadium, Sports Salsa 2015

4. Kansas City Chiefs @ Pittsburgh Steelers

Sunday, Sept. 16, 1 pm ET

TV: CBS
AM-FM Radio: Westwood One (Find affiliate near you)
Subscription Radio: SiriusXM 385 (Chiefs) / 227 (Steelers); TuneIn Premium

Pittsburgh almost finds itself in a must-win situation after an unbelievable tie with the Browns last week. KC looked strong in its opener against a Chargers team that many pundits had winning the AFC West.

5. #22 USC @ Texas

Saturday, Sept. 15, 8 pm ET

TV: Fox
Subscription Radio: SiriusXM 83/200; TuneIn Premium

Years ago, this would have been must-see TV. Both schools are limping at the start, with Texas entering the game at 1-1 and the Trojans at 0-1. The game will likely dictate fortunes for both clubs this season. You can expect the Texas home crowd to be up for this one.

6. New York Giants @ Dallas Cowboys

Sunday, Sept. 16, 8:20 pm ET

TV: NBC
Subscription radio: SiriusXM 226 (Giants) / 225 (Cowboys); TuneIn Premium

Dare we put the Cowboys in the top 7 again this week after the clunker of an opener against the Panthers last week? The matchup features two 0-1 teams who both realize that starting the season with two losses decreases the odds of making the playoffs. Should be a tense battle between two rivals.

7. #4 Ohio State @ #15 TCU

Saturday, Sept. 15, 8 pm ET

TV: ABC
Subscription radio: SiriumXM 80; TuneIn Premium

Great for channel flippers as this game goes up against USC-Texas. Urban Meyer won’t be on the sideline, but the odds makers say the Buckeyes are roughly 12-point favorites. TCU will be looking to make a statement, though, and is hoping home-field advantage works for them.

 

Other Story-lines to watch this weekend:

  • The only other college top-25 matchup this week is #17 Boise State at #24 Oklahoma State. Any chance for a top 10 finish this year for either team rides on this game.
  • Hawaii is the only 3-0 team in the FCS right now. They take on Army. Can the ‘Bows extend the streak?
  • The Atlanta Falcons are looking for their first victory, but will it come up against the Carolina Panthers?
  • Mississippi has given Alabama fits in recent years. Will the Tide still be number one after this weekend’s game?
  • Jon Gruden is looking for his first victory after returning to the Raiders sidelines. He takes on division rival Denver in a classic AFC West matchup.
  • The LPGA Evian Championship takes place in France.
  • Feel a cool breeze coming in? That’s the ice rinks of your favorite NHL teams filling up. Teams start dropping pre-season pucks this weekend.
