World Series Game Five: San Francisco Giants at Texas Rangers, 7:30, Fox: It ain't a series til somebody loses a home game, and the Rangers have kindly gone and made it a series. The Giants can close out the season on the first day of November with a win in Arlington tonight. Aces Cliff Lee and Tim Lincecum return to the mound, and Texas will be eager just to make a dent in the scoreboard after being shut out twice already. Don't look now, but the inferior National League is about to win its third World Series title in five years. GAME OF THE DAY!â†µ
Georgia Bulldogs vs. Florida Gators replay, 1, CSS: Why you'd ever want to relive this is beyond us, though Atlanta does have a high degree of Gator fans. And a high degree of Auburn, Tennessee, and Georgia Tech fans. And it's not like Dawg Nation is averse to a little self-torture. Hey, this game is on. If you'd like to try and purge Jacksonville from your system by enduring it one more time, it's there. Now circle back once you're done with that, and let's get ready for Idaho State!â†µ
Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts, 8:30, ESPN: Technically this is the best game on the board, but World Series, so. The 4-2 Colts have never been swept by an AFC South rival, and this year's 4-2 Texans have as good a shot as anybody's ever had, though Bill Simmons will tweet hourly about Peyton Manning's night record from now til kickoff. Winner moves into a gigantic nineteen-team tie for second place in the AFC behind the Patriots.
