1. Rafael Nadal vs. Novak Djokovic

Details: Monday, November 11 @ 3:00 PM ET - The O2 Arena - London, England, U.K.

Watch Here: ESPN2 on XFINITY

Why Watch: The top two tennis players in the world face-off in the ATP World Tour Finals Monday afternoon. Novak Djokovic has won his last 21 matches since losing the U.S. Open final to Rafael Nadal, who he will face once again in Monday's ATP Final. Nadal has been on an all-time high, winning 10 tour titles this year and eyeing an 11th if he can once again defeat Djoker on another finals stage. These two have become the world's best rivalry and this is as good as it gets on Monday afternoon! Make sure not to miss a point as it's all about Djokovic vs. Nadal in the #ATP #FinalShowdown!

2.U-Conn vs. Stanford

Details: Monday, November 11 @ 7:00 PM ET - Gampel Pavilion - Storrs, CT

Watch Here: ESPN2 on XFINITY

Why Watch: It's the No. 1 ranked Huskies versus the No. 3 ranked Cardinal. It's Chiney Ogwumike, recipient of all 36 preseason All-American votes, versus last season's Final Four most outstanding player, Breanna Stewart. It's Coach Tara VanDerveer getting her team ready to face the great coach Geno Auriemma. This is the main event of college hoops Monday night - make sure you've got your popcorn ready for the battle of national hoops heavyweights on ESPN2!

3. Miami Dolphins vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Details: Monday, November 11 @ 8:30 PM ET - Raymond James Stadium - Tampa Bay, FL

Watch Here: ESPN on XFINITY

Why Watch: When the lights come on in Florida Monday night, two teams in dire need of a win take the field. We've watched and read all about Incognito and Martin, it's an ongoing story of Schiano's days are numbered, but all the story lines can be rewritten with an impact performance on the NFL's biggest stage - #MNF. There's a bright side to Tampa and it's an act called Mike and Mike. Rookie quarterback, Mike Glennon, hasn't turned the ball over in his last two and running back Mike James has been a bright light as the fill-in tailback (158 rush yds vs. Seattle)! Miami is coming off a bye week and will look to get a win to bring the talk of the town back to the play on the field. Look for the Phins to ride Lamar Miller, who averaged 6.6 yards per carry in their last contest. Will the Dolphins keep their playoff hopes alive or will Tampa get win number one on #MNF?

4. Michigan State vs. Kentucky

Details: Tuesday, November 12 @ 7:30 PM ET - United Center - Chicago, IL

Watch Here: ESPN on XFINITY

Why Watch: 20 ESPN NCAA Men's BB analysts/experts were polled to see who would cut down the nets at the end of the season and UK got 10 votes, MSU received six votes. This is a game you cancel your evening plans for - No. 1 Kentucky tipping off against No. 2 Michigan State! The Wildcats are led by freshmen phenom, Julius Randle. Randle is making quite the statement, averaging 23 ppg and 15 boards. A Tom Izzo team built around ball movement and rebounding will challenge these young cats. The Spartans are led by sophomore standout and #B1G preseason player of the year Gary Harris. It will be a battle of wills as the Cats and Spartans do battle on ESPN's Champions Classic.

5. Kansas vs. Duke

Details: Tuesday, November 12 @ 10:00 PM ET - United Center - Chicago, IL

Watch Here: ESPN on XFINITY

Why Watch: Can college basketball season get anyy better than the Champions Classic? I think the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader is a chart topper as the top two freshmen take the floor against one another - Andrew Wiggins against Jabari Parker. Two of the sports most prestigious programs - No. 5 Kansas vs. No. 4 Duke, two of the games best coaches - Coach K vs. Bill Self. It will be a game that will impact the NBA's 2014 Draft, shake the collegiate rankings, and jumpstart a programs season. If you want to see history being made in the early season showdown, don't miss #Duke vs. #Kansas Tuesday night!
