Local grads continue league play

Shaw Media sports copy editor Kevin Murphy picks his top sporting events to watch on TV this weekend with a spotlight on local graduates:


College football: Minnesota at Michigan, 2:30 p.m. today, ABC

Former Northern Illinois coach Jerry Kill takes the Golden Gophers in the Big House, as they seek their first Big Ten win of the season.

Marmion’s Ryan Glasgow and Graham Glasgow look to keep the Wolverines undefeated. The Glasgows are from DeKalb.

The Wolverines and Gophers have played for the Little Brown Jug since 1909, making it the oldest trophy game in major college football. Minnesota has had the retired water jug only once since 1986, winning in 2005 at the Big House, where the Gophers stormed across the field to grab it when the game was over.

College football: Michigan St. at Iowa, 11 a.m. today, ESPN2

Former DeKalb football player and Iowa freshman running back LeShun Daniels Jr. is on the Hawkeyes’ roster.

College football: Clemson at Syracuse, 2:30 p.m. today, ESPN2

Syracuse rookie coach Scott Shafer is a former NIU assistant football coach.

Pro baseball: ALDS, Detroit at Oakland, Game 2, 8:07 p.m. today, TBS

Hiawatha graduate Gene Lamont is the bench coach for the Tigers.

Women’s soccer: Northwestern at Purdue, 3:30 p.m. Sunday, BTN

Kaneland graduate Jordan Ginther occasionally has started at goalkeeper for the Boilermakers.


Pro hockey: Tampa Bay at Blackhawks, 7 p.m. today, CSN

Six goals in the opener for the Hawks? I’ll take that. I’d rather not see the other team score four goals every night. Is it too early to start counting down when the Hawks can clinch the Presidents’ Trophy?


Pro football: Saints at Bears, noon Sunday, FOX

This could be a shootout or with Drew Brees’ arm it could get ugly, real quick. I’m not not saying the Bears won’t win, but the Saints are a lot better than the Lions.


NBA: Preseason, Bulls at Indiana, 6 p.m. today, WGN

Yes, we all want to see Derrick Rose play. How long have we been saying that? I’m not getting my hopes up. I’ll wait to the regular season starts.
