College football dominates today's television schedule, as ESPN College Gameday is in town for the battle between USC and Oregon. But there is also a pair of hockey games and a little thing called the World Series to whet your sports appetite. Here is a look at today's television schedule:â†µ
6 a.m.: ESPN College GameDay (one hour on ESPNU, followed by two hours on ESPN)
Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit, Lee Corso, Erin Andrews, et al are at the Coliseum for three hours of college football talk, with a large focus on tonight's USC-Oregon tilt. If early morning drinking, creative signs, and mascot headgear are your thing, get up early to watch. USC is undefeated when GameDay is in Los Angeles.
12:30 p.m.: No. 15 Arizona Wildcats at UCLA Bruins (Prime Ticket)
The Bruins look to get back on track after getting outscored 95-20 in their last two games, but will have to face the top defense in the Pac-10 as UCLA tries to snap its two-game losing streak. Barry Tompkins, Petros Papadakis, and Rebecca Haarlow are on the call.
3:30 p.m.: World Series Game 3, San Francisco Giants at Texas Rangers (Fox)
Colby Lewis and the Rangers look for a better result at home, trying to comeback from a 2-0 series deficit against Jonathan Sanchez and the Giants. The 3:30 p.m. start is the earliest start time for a World Series game since Game 6 of the 1987 World Series.
5 p.m.: No. 1 Oregon Ducks at No. 24 USC Trojans (ABC, ESPN3.com)
Expect a high-scoring shootout as the top two offenses in the Pac-10 do battle as USC looks for its first win against a number one team since 1984. Brent Musberger, Kirk Herbstreit, and Erin Andrews are on the call.
7:30 p.m.: Anaheim Ducks at San Jose Sharks (Prime Ticket)
The Ducks don't have to travel outside of California until November 14, with their farthest trips a pair of games up north in San Jose. Tonight is one of of those contests.
7:30 p.m.: New Jersey Devils at Los Angeles Kings (Fox Sports West)
The Devils, one night after beating the Ducks in Anaheim, travel north to face the Kings, who have the best record in the Western Conference.
