Sports and televisions were invented for one another. Here, we at SB Nation pore through the TV schedule for Wednesday, Dec. 22, and select for you the finest in sports television consumption. All times Eastern.
8 p.m., ESPN - The MAACO Bowl. Utah vs. Boise State. One Bronco Nation Under God has placed a wager with Block U: the blog of the losing team will allow a blogger from the winning team to author a guest post. Block U, by the way, invokes The Goonies for inspiration.College basketball
7 p.m., ESPN2 - No. 18 Texas at No. 12 Michigan State. The Only Colors reckons that Texas and Michigan State are about even in talent, and that home-court advantage will be instrumental for the Spartans.
9 p.m., ESPN2 - No. 9 Missouri at No. 21 Illinois. The Illini are still in shock from an upset at the hands of Illinois-Chicago. Hail To The Orange previews a match-up against a Missouri team that's better than it's been in some time.
7 p.m., NBA TV - Bulls at Wizards. Both of these teams are rolling. The Wizards just won by a 20-point margin for the first time in nearly three years, and the Bulls just clobbered the Sixers by a 45-point margin.
