The NFC title game Sunday has San Francisco at Atlanta and the AFC game to follow pits Baltimore at New England. If Baltimore and San Francisco both win, the Harbaugh brothers will go against each other in the Super Bowl.
Michigan State hockey hosts Ferris Friday night with a return game Saturday in Big Rapids and the Spartans are trying to find some offense and momentum after beating second ranked Notre Dame 4-1 last Saturday. The MSU women are at Indiana at 2pm Sunday, a game they should win which likely get them ranked in the top 25 next week with a 16-2 record.
The MSU men begin a grueling stretch with a 6pm home game Saturday against Ohio State. The Spartans then go to Wisconsin Tuesday and at Indiana on Saturday.
