1. Miami Heat vs. Brooklyn Nets

Details: Friday, November 1 @ 8:00 PM ET - Barclays Center - Brooklyn, NY

Watch Here: ESPN on XFINITY

Why Watch: Make sure to watch the first game between the Eastern Conference's newest and possibly biggest rivalry - #Heat vs. #Nets Friday night! The Nets have a couple of former Celtics in their starting five and they are well-documented Heat haters. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett bring rings to a Nets team that is looking for leadership, while the Heat are looking to secure their third ring in as many seasons. Lebron James' epic playoff battles with the newest Nets are some of the greatest games in recent years, making this game a must watch on Friday night! Can the Nets be the next to dethrone the King or will the Heat be turned up in Brooklyn Friday night?

2. USC Trojans vs. Oregon State Beavers

Details: Friday, November 1 @ 9:00 PM ET - Reser Stadium - Corvallis, OR

Watch Here: ESPN2 on XFINITY

Why Watch: One team is built around defensive dominance, and the other is known to light up the scoreboard with big scores - which one prevails Friday night? The Trojans bring a rugged defense to the field allowing 19 ppg, and will look to control the line of scrimmage to win their second straight division win. The Trojans will have their hands full as they'll try to slow the nation’s best passing attack? OSU's Sean Mannion is making history as the current offensive leader in passing yards (3,263 pass yards) and his favorite target, Brandin Cooks, is the receiving yards leader with 1,256 receiving yards on 85 catches! Plenty of offense to keep you entertained as the #Pac12 battle it out on the field Friday night.

3. Army Black Knights vs. Air Force Falcons

Details: Saturday, November 2 @ 12:00 PM ET - Falcon Stadium - USAF Academy, CO

Watch Here: ESPNU on XFINITY

Why Watch: If you want to watch one of the fastest college football games of the season, tune in to our Nation's armed forces as they battle it out on the gridiron. Army and Navy have two of the best rushing attacks in the country! The Black Knights bring the nation's top run game to the field, averaging 340+ rushing yards per game on the tailback tandem of Baggett (768 yds) and Dixon (590 yds). The Falcons rank 12th in the FCS, averaging 271+ rushing yards a game, with feature back Broam Hart tallying 408 yards and three touchdowns. The honor, respect, and courage of these young men is an amazing thing to watch. Make sure you're streaming these two teams as one runs to victory Saturday at noon.

4. Arsenal vs. Liverpool

Details: Saturday, November 2 @ 1:00 PM ET - Liverpool Stadium - Liverpool, Merseyside, U.K.

Watch Here: NBC with XFINITY

Why Watch: When the two best strikers in the Premier League face-off against one of the #BPL's best defensive clubs? It’s likely to lead to one of the best matched games of the year! Make sure you’re streaming Arsenal vs. Liverpool as the dominating offensive pair of Sturridge and Suarez (14 goals combined) attempt to net a goal past the exceptionally disciplined defense of the Gunners. Not only does Arsenal have a stellar defense, but a top offense as well, with 20 goals on the year ranking second in the Prem. This top-of-the-table clash is going to be the best of Saturday's lot, stream every minute with NBC Sports Live Extra!

5. Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans

Details: Sunday, November 3 @ 8:30 PM ET - Reliant Stadium - Houston, TX

Watch Here: NBC with XFINITY

Why Watch: The Indianapolis Colts have been winning big games all season long, but can they come into Texan territory and win one in Houston on #SNF? The Texans are fresh off a bye week and are out to make a playoff push in the second half of the season. Their defense has been outstanding against QBs, but porous against the run. Which has everyone wondering if Trent Richardson will top Arian Foster on NBC? It could come down to the defenses on Sunday, as coach Pagano has this Colts D looking strong! I say, look forward to a hard-hitting AFC Southern showdown on @SNFonNBC!
