NFL Playoff Schedule: Ravens Vs. Steelers, Packers Vs. Falcons, Oregon's New Basketball Court Highlight Saturday's TV Action

The divisional round of the 2011 NFL playoffs is upon us, and a pair of rematches highlight today's schedule. The Ravens and Steelers continue their divisional war with a rubber match from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, followed by a rematch of what might be the two best teams in the NFC. Meanwhile, UCLA takes aim at Oregon's new basketball court at Matthew Knight arena, while USC battles the Beavers in Corvallis. The local NBA teams take Saturday off as the Lakers and Clippers prepare for their Sunday showdown, but both NHL teams are in action tonight to finish the day. Here is a full look at Saturday's television schedule:

1:30 p.m.: Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers (CBS): These two AFC North rivals are very evenly matched. They finished with the same 12-4 record (a 5-1 divisional record by Pittsburgh gave them the home game today against the Ravens, 4-2 within the division), beat each other on the road by three points this season, and have been separated by a total of three points in their last 18 meetings. Expect another close game today at Heinz Field.

2 p.m.: UCLA Bruins at Oregon Ducks (Prime Ticket): After beating the Beavers in Corvallis on Thursday night, the Bruins take aim at the ridiculousness that is the court at Matthew Knight Arena in Oregon

5 p.m.: Green Bay Packers at Atlanta Falcons (Fox): Like every other NFL playoff game this weekend, this is a rematch. These two teams met on November 28 at the Georgia Dome, with the Falcons breaking the tie late in the fourth quarter to win 20-17.

5 p.m.: Anaheim Ducks at Phoenix Coyotes (Prime Ticket): After a 5-1 homestand, the Ducks travel to Phoenix to battle a Pacific Division foe jockeying for position in the middle of the Western Conference playoff chase.

7 p.m.: Edmonton Oilers at Los Angeles Kings (Fox Sports West): The Kings look to end what has been a miserable homestand on a high note, as they are 1-6 in the first seven games of their season-long eight-game homestand. The Kings won their first eight home games this season, but are 6-8-1 since at Staples Center.

7:30 p.m.: USC Trojans at Oregon St. Beavers (Fox Sports Regional): The Trojans look to get back on track against the Beavers after losing to Oregon on Thursday night.
