North Carolina vs Syracuse Live

The North Carolina Tar Heels and the Syracuse Orange are opening their 2020 seasons against one another at noon ET on Saturday at Kenan Memorial Stadium. While UNC was not exactly top dog last year, they did wrap up the year with a winning record of 7-6. Meanwhile, ‘Cuse struggled last season, ending up 5-7.

Two last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Tar Heels were 12th best in the nation (top 9%) in yards per game, finishing the 2019 season with 474 on average. Less enviably, the Orange ranked 16th worst in the nation with respect to yards allowed per game last year, where the squad gave up 464.1 on average (bottom 88%). The good news for ‘Cuse, of course, is that these forces working against them might not carry over into the new season.

UNC is the favorite in this one, with an expected 23-point margin of victory. A victory is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.

Chiefs vs Texans Live

The defending world champion Kansas City Chiefs will host the Houston Texans for the season opener of the 2020 season. This game is a rematch of the divisional round playoff game in which the Chiefs got down 24-0 early, but won 51-31 going away.

The Chiefs will be without running back Damien Williams, who opted out of the season, but they will have first-round pick Clyde Edwards-Helaire in his place. The Texans no longer have their star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins after trading him to Arizona for running back David Johnson, while also adding receivers Randall Cobb and Brandin Cooks to help replace Hopkins.

The Chiefs kept their core team together in hopes of starting a run of Super Bowl appearances while the Texans remain a good, but incomplete team that will need to improve to be a consistent force this season. This game showcases two of the best quarterbacks in the league with Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson, and should be a fun, offensive showcase for the two young QBs.

Thunder vs Rockets Live

The Oklahoma City Thunder fell behind in the series 3-2 after a devastating loss to the Houston Rockets.

Game 6 is win-or-go-home for the Thunder team that surprised the league by making the playoffs this season.

The Thunder failed to score even 20 points in three of the four quarters. Oklahoma City went 7-for-46 from deep. Dennis Schroder, the only Thunder player who was scoring, got ejected in the third quarter.

Houston played off Lu Dort, leading him to shoot and miss too many shots. They played keep-away from Danilo Gallinari, who finished the game with one point and only took five shots. Russell Westbrook played for the first time in the series but only got 24 minutes of time.

Austin Peay vs Central Arkansas Live

Believe it or not, college football is here. After an interesting month where various teams and conferences postponed football due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many were wondering if games would be played this fall. There are still plenty of teams looking to play, and it starts on Saturday night when Austin Peay takes on Central Arkansas at the Cramton Bowl in Montgomery, Alabama. The game will air live on ESPN at 9 p.m. ET.

Most college football fans won’t know the players on either team since they play in the FCS. However, fans should be in for a treat as both teams reached the FCS playoffs last year. Central Arkansas reached the second round while Austin Peay made it to the quarterfinals after winning a school-record 11 games. An interesting note about Austin Peay is its head coach, Mark Hudspeth, resigned in July, stating he wanted to spend more time with his family. Associate head coach Marquase Lovings will take his place on an interim basis.

“This is different,” Central Arkansas athletics director Brad Teague said via USA Today. “And certainly because we’re the only game on Saturday and the first game of the college football season, the first NCAA contest since COVID shut it down in the spring, there is a lot more excitement.”

The game will set an example of how other college football teams will prepare and play games during a pandemic. Both teams will drove to the game on Friday and stayed in a hotel overnight. Austin Peay traveled in four buses with each bus at half capacity. For Central Arkansas, each person wore an N95 mask while on the bus, Teague said to USA Today.

“It’ll be a little different because under normal circumstances parents and friends could linger in the hotel lobby and hang out with players on the team,” Austin Peay athletics director Gerald Harrison stated. “But that’s not happening now.”

As for fans, the Cramton Bowl will limit attendance to a quarter of its 25,000 seat capacity, which is similar to what Power 5 schools are doing. Austin Peay and Central Arkansas each got 400 tickets for players, families and guests, Harrison noted. According to Yahoo Sports, no tailgating will be allowed next to the stadium, and fans must wear masks when entering the stadium or walking around. Cheerleaders will be seated in the stands, but the school’s bands will not be at the game.

Indy 500 Live

The 104th Indianapolis 500 will mark the first time the Greatest Spectacle in Racing will be held outside of May, and “When is the Indy 500?” is one of many questions about Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s signature race.

The green flag will drop on the 2020 Indy 500 at 2:30 p.m. ET (coverage begins at 1 p.m. on NBC) Sunday, nearly three months after its originally scheduled date.

All associated concerts and the 500 Festival Parade in downtown Indianapolis have been canceled, and the race will be run without fans for the first time in its history.
