Well, it’s that time of the week where we take a look at the hottest events happening this weekend. No big surprise this week is dominated by college football once again as this week is “Championship Week”. The hottest ticket this week is the SEC Football Championship game where undefeated LSU will play against the Georgia Bulldogs. A win for LSU and they are a lock to get the opportunity to play in the BCS National Championship Game at the Super Dome in New Orleans.
Coming in at #2 is the PAC 12 Championship Game where the Oregon Ducks will face the surprising UCLA Bruins. The Ducks should easily handle the Bruins and still have an outside shot at facing LSU in the National Championship game. Coming in at #3 and #4 respectively are the Big 10 and ACC Championship games. While the teams involved in these games won’t have a shot at a national title they are playing for position in BCS Bowl games. The Badgers are Spartans are hoping for a chance to play at the Rose Bowl while Clemson and Virginia Tech are competing for a lot in the Orange Bowl.
The big rivalry game between the Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys also made the list (#7). This game means a lot to both teams as the winner will likely get the nod for the Fiesta Bowl.
Also appearing on the list for the first time are Andrea Bocelli and Cesar Millan. Bocelli is a popular Italian tenor, instrumentalist, and classical cross-over artist who concerts are always popular around the holiday season. Cesar Millan is know as the dog whisperer. We aren’t sure why he appears on this list but apparently many folks in Providence Rhode Island have dogs with behavioral issues.
Rounding out the top 10 we have 3 NFL Football games. At #8 the undefeated Green Bay Packers will head to the New Meadowlands Stadium and face a resurgent NY Giants squad. With both teams fighting for a playoff spot, the Washington Redskins and NY Jets comes in at #9. Last, but not least, we have the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens. This game is always much anticipated after the old Browns franchise relocated to Baltimore and became the Ravens. The “Dawg Pound” surely has not forgot nor forgiven them.
