Full Weekend Of Sports In Tampa Bay


You want sports? We got Tampa Bay sports.

Better get your snacks, beverages, and remote control handy.  We got a lineup that will keep you on your couch all weekend long.  And because we are a connected society, you may as well grab your laptop, too.

USF plays at 12, the Rays at 5, and the Lightning at 7:30 on Saturday.  On Sunday, the Bucs play at 1pm, and depending on what happens today, the Rays may play at the same time.

We know where to find the games, how to keep up with them, and where to go to trash talk the enemy - read on...

At noon, the Syracuse Orange take on your USF Bulls in the opening weekend of Big East play.  We got a preview of the game, but if you want to keep up with it live, watch it on ABC Action News, and check in with other USF fans at voodooFIVE, Orange fans at Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician, or the SB Nation gameday ticker.

At 5pm, your Tampa Bay Rays try to stay alive in the American League Division Series against the Texas Rangers - in Texas. The game is on TBSDRaysBay will host a game-long runnung commentary for Rays fans, and  check out Lone Star Ball if you want to keep up with the enemy.  The SB Nation Network has the ticker with Rays/Rangers Game Three Coverage.

At 7:30pm, NHL hockey kicks off in Tampa Bay.  Your Tampa Bay Lightning take on the Atlanta Thrashers in the Bolts' season opener.  You can watch this one on SunSports, and keep up with fan reaction with locals Raw Charge, and Georgians Bird Watcher Anonymous.  The Thrashers/Lightning ticker is right there.

On Sunday at 1pm, the Cincinnatti Bengals host your Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Fox 13.  Again, we've got a good preview of the Bucs' week 5 contest, but keep up with latest developments and fan reaction at Bucs Nation and/or the Cincy Jungle or both at the Bucs/Bengals gameday conglomeration.

Don't forget, if the Rays win Saturday, they'll be playing at 1:07 on Sunday, too.
