(Toews, Kane) The Blackhawks will be put to the test in their first road game of the season vs. the St.Louis Blues, Wednesday night on the #NHLonNBC.

4. Rutgers vs. Louisville
Details: Thursday, October 10 @ 7:30 PM ET - Papa John's Cardinal Stadium - Louisville, KY
Watch Here: ESPN on XFINITY
Why Watch: This week in primetime Teddy Bridgewater will look to build his resume for his 2013 Heisman campaign, as college football takes over on Thursday night. Bridgewater has looked strong so far this season with 1,562 passing yards and 16 TDs, but he'll be challenged by a strong Scarlet Knight defense. Rutgers is red hot, winning their last four games and averaging 40 ppg. Thursday's biggest question: which will break first, the Rutgers high-powered offense or the Louisville stonewall defense (allowing 9 ppg)?

5. Minnesota Lynx vs. Atlanta Dream
Details: Thursday, October 10 @ 8:30 PM ET - The Arena at Gwinnett Center - Duluth, GA
Watch Here: ESPN2 on XFINITY
Why Watch: Game 3 of the #WNBAFinals returns to the ATL, as the Dream are looking to regain their ground and keep their title aspirations alive in front of a home crowd. The Minnesota Lynx are snowballing through the playoffs, and might be bringing the brooms to Atlanta for a sweep. The Dream has a 4-13 road record this season, but are a different team at home going 16-4. Is the combination of Maya Moore and Seimone Augustus too much for the Dream or will it be home be just peachy for these Georgia girls?
