1. South Carolina vs. Georgia
Details: Saturday, September 7 @ 4:30 PM ET - Sanford Stadium - Athens, GA
Watch Here: ESPN on XFINITY
Why Watch: The Georgia Bulldogs haven't beaten the Gamecocks since 2009, but the Dogs have made two-consecutive appearances in theSEC Championship Game. The SEC East could be decided between the hedges Saturday, as these two programs take the field. Can the Heisman-hyped DE, Clowney, slow the Dog’soffense? His past performance against the Dogs includes 3 sacks, a forced fumble, and two wins. While Georgia is looking to avoid an 0-2 start for the second time in three years. Senior quarterback, Aaron Murray, has the skills to lead UGA to a win, as he's clutch in the 4th quarter (no turnovers in the 4th Q since 12/3/11) and will be looking to lead his team to victory.

3. Chicago Fire vs. Seattle Sounders
Details: Saturday, September 7 @ 10:00 PM ET - CenturyLink Field - Seattle, WA
Watch Here: NBCSN on XFINITY
Why Watch: The Emerald City Supporters will be in full roar Saturday night as the Chicago Fire come to town for Saturday night's MLS match on NBCSN. The Fire are playing for a position in the playoffs and are sitting in seventh in the Easter Conference Table, only two points removed from the fifth place spot. A road win in Seattle, home of the largest and most raucous MLS crowd (avg. 42,963) would be a great boost for Chicago, but it won't come easy. They'll need the sure-footed scorer, Mike Magee (14 goals), to kick it in to gear. It won't be easy, as Sounders' goalie, Michael Gspurning, hasn't allowed a goal since August 17th!
