NRL Grand Final 2020 Live Panthers vs Storm At ANZ Stadium

History will be made when the red-hot Panthers clash with the Melbourne Storm in the NRL Grand Final on Sunday night.

A season like no other has produced a grand final week like no other with the Storm and Panthers barely coming into contact before they lock horns at ANZ Stadium.

The Panthers will become the first team since 1959 to win the grand final with just one loss for the season if they can overcome Melbourne’s team of warriors.

European Rugby Challenge Cup Final 2020 Live

The European Rugby Challenge Cup is an annual European rugby union competition organised by European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR). It is the second-tier competition for European clubs behind the European Rugby Champions Cup. From its inception in 1996 to 2014, it was known as the European Challenge Cup and governed by European Rugby Cup (ERC). Following disagreements in the structure of the tournament’s format and division of revenue, the English and French leagues withdrew to form the EPCR, which organized the Challenge Cup and the Champions Cup since the 2014–15 season.

The Challenge Cup is contested between 20 teams; 18 qualifying from the three main European domestic leagues (Premiership Rugby, Top 14, and Pro14), and two qualifying from the Continental Shield competition between teams from second-tier level Rugby Europe nations.

Clermont are the current Challenge Cup holders, having won the 2018–19 European Rugby Challenge Cup.

Rugby fans across the world can this weekend watch stars of the global game in the 25th anniversary season of European club rugby’s blue-riband tournament. A host of broadcasters as well as a brand new OTT platform will screen this weekend’s Heineken Champions Cup and Challenge Cup showpiece final clashes on Friday night and Saturday afternoon.

Kansas vs Coastal Carolina Live

The Kansas Jayhawks and the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers are opening their 2020 seasons against one another at 10 p.m. ET on Saturday at Kivisto Field at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium. Returning after a rocky 3-9 year, Kansas is aiming to prove that the past does not define them. Likewise, Coastal Carolina struggled last season, ending up 5-7.

The Jayhawks have the odds in their favor, so they’ll need to guard against complacency. A victory is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.

Texas Tech vs Houston Baptist Live

The Texas Tech Red Raiders will play against a Division II opponent, the Houston Baptist Huskies, in an early-season tune-up on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET at Jones AT&T Stadium. Last year was nothing to brag about for the Red Raiders (4-8), so the squad is looking forward to a new start.

Texas Tech has the odds in their favor, so they’ll need to guard against complacency. It would take nothing short of a miracle for Houston Baptist to pull off a win, but maybe they can at least keep Texas Tech from covering the spread.

Louisville vs Western Kentucky Live

The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers and the Louisville Cardinals will face off at 8 p.m. ET Sept. 12 at Cardinal Stadium to kick off their 2020 seasons. The Hilltoppers ended up 9-4 last year and capped things off with a win over the Western Michigan Broncos in the First Responder Bowl, so they are on the hunt for another strong season. U of L was on the positive side of .500 (8-5) last season and is hoping to kick off an even more successful year.

A couple defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: WKU was 12th best in the nation (top 9%) in rushing touchdowns allowed, finishing the 2019 season giving up only 11. Less enviably, the Cardinals ranked sixth worst in the nation with respect to passing touchdowns allowed last season, where the team gave up 31.

Since the experts predict a loss, WKU will need to dig deep. We’ll soon see whether they can make the experts look bad.

Texas vs UTEP Live

The Texas Longhorns will face off against the UTEP Miners at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium/Jamail Field. Texas was on the positive side of .500 (8-5) last season and is hoping to kick off an even more successful year. UTEP was 1-11 last year and is coming off of a 24-14 victory against the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks this past Saturday.

A pair of numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Longhorns were 13th worst when it came to passing touchdowns allowed last season, with the team giving up 28 overall (bottom 91%). UTEP experienced some struggles of their own as they ranked eighth worst in the nation with respect to passing touchdowns last year, where the squad accrued only nine. So maybe these sore spots will just cancel each other out if things haven’t changed too much in the offseason.

Texas has the odds in their favor, so they’ll need to guard against complacency. It would take nothing short of a miracle for UTEP to pull off a win, but maybe they can at least keep Texas from covering the spread.

South Alabama vs Tulane Live

The Tulane Green Wave will face off against the South Alabama Jaguars at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday at Hancock Whitney Stadium. Tulane was on the positive side of .500 (7-6) last season and is hoping to kick off an even more successful year. South Alabama was 2-10 last year and is coming off of a 32-21 victory against the Southern Miss Golden Eagles last Thursday.

A pair of offensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Green Wave were 11th best in the nation (top 8%) in rushing yards per game, finishing the 2019 season with 243.2 on average. Less enviably, South Alabama ranked 12th worst in the nation with respect to passing yards per game last season, where the team accrued only 158.8 on average (bottom 92%). So the South Alabama squad has its work cut out for it.

Tulane is the favorite in this one, with an expected 8-point margin of victory. A win is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.

Wake Forest vs Clemson Live

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons are 0-5 against the Clemson Tigers since November of 2015, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit on Saturday. They will face off at 7:30 p.m. ET Sept. 12 at Truist Field to kick off their 2020 seasons. The Demon Deacons were on the positive side of .500 (8-5) last season and are hoping to kick off an even more successful year. Meanwhile, after a 13-1 record last year and an appearance in the CFP Championship, Clemson is coming in with an eye to spark another quality season.

A pair of last-season offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Wake Forest was 15th best in the nation (top 12%) in yards per game, finishing the 2019 season with 464 on average. Clemson displayed some offensive firepower of their own as they ranked second in the nation in overall offensive touchdowns, closing the season with 85 overall. We’ll find out if either of these strengths ends up making the difference in the game.

Wake Forest is expected to lose, and badly: the experts have them at a 33-point disadvantage. A win doesn’t seem in the cards, but we’ll see if they can at least keep Clemson from covering the spread.

South Florida vs Citadel Live

he South Florida Bulls will play against an Division II opponent, the Citadel Bulldogs, in an early-season tune-up on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET at Raymond James Stadium. South Florida struggled last season, ending up 4-8.

The Bulls are the favorite in this one, with an expected 20.5-point margin of victory.

The Oklahoma Sooners will play against an Division II opponent, the Missouri State Bears, in an early-season tune-up on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET at Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. After an 12-2 record last season and an appearance in the Peach Bowl, the Sooners are coming in with an eye to spark another quality season.

Oklahoma has the odds in their favor, so they’ll need to guard against complacency. It would take nothing short of an miracle for MSU to pull off an victory, but maybe they can at least keep Oklahoma from covering the spread.
