2. Mississippi State vs. Auburn
Details: Saturday, September 14 @ 7:00 PM ET - Jordan-Hare Stadium - Auburn, AL
Watch Here: ESPN2 on XFINITY
Why Watch: Saturday night's gridiron battle in the SEC West between the Bulldogs and Tigers is going to be intense. The Auburn offense is running full speed ahead, averaging 298 rushing yards per game. The carries are split between juniors Tre Mason and Cameron Artis-Payne, and opposing defenses are hard pressed to find the answer to slowing them down. The Bulldogs will try to counter the run-heavy Auburn offense with a defensive front that consistently gets pressure in the backfield. These two are known for tight games, as two of their last three meetings have been decided by a touchdown or less, so get comfortable and don't miss this game!

3. Wisconsin vs. Arizona State
Details: Saturday, September 14 @ 10:30 PM ET - Sun Devil Stadium - Tempe, AZ
Watch Here: ESPN on XFINITY
Why Watch: The 20th-ranked Wisconsin Badgers travel west for a date in the desert with the Arizona State Sun Devils Saturday night. This game is can't miss due to the contrasting styles of play. The Badgers' like to dominate the ball and grind out a game through their running backs. Wisconsin's talented trio of running backs has toted the ball for over 770 yards and seven scores on the season. On the other sideline, the Sun Devils thrive on a high-octane offense that's led by junior quarterback, Taylor Kelly. Kelly looked sharp in his debut throwing for 300 yards and 5 touchdowns. Saturday night we will see if the Badgers can pace the game or if the Devils can run away with it at home.

4. New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox
Details: Sunday, September 15 @ 8:00 PM ET – Fenway Park – Boston, MA
Watch Here: ESPN on XFINITY
Why Watch: The Boston Red Sox host division rivals on Sunday Night Baseball, as the New York Yankees make their Fenway finale. Clay Bucholz has been masterful this season, compiling a 10-0 record with an ERA of 1.61 and will look to halt the Yankees lineup one last time. The Yankees have been bitten by the injury bug in 2013, but are all healthy and swinging the sticks late in the season. The Bronx Bombers have been putting up big numbers in September and look to finish the season strong. This will be the last clash of the Yankees and Red Sox this season, so make sure you're tuning in to this ballgame!

5. San Francisco 49ers vs. Seattle Seahawks
Details: Sunday, September 15 @ 8:30 PM ET - CenturyLink Field - Seattle, WA
Watch Here: NBC with XFINITY
Why Watch: A tale of two teams is what we saw in week one as the 49ers offense looked unstoppable and the Seahawks struggled to muster up points. The read option set the NFL on fire last season and it was largely in part to Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson, but in Week 1 of 2013 it seems to have disappeared. Both teams used the option only seven times, gaining less than 50 yards. Are the game plans changing, or is this more overreaction to one regular season game? Don’t miss the top teams in the NFC West face off in primetime on Sunday night
