Your Sports TV Schedule, 12/27: Falcons/Saints, Independence Bowl

We almost got two Monday Night football games when the NFL postponed the Eagles and Vikings due to the blizzard in the Northeast. But even with staggered starting times, the league probably wasn't willing to interfere with ESPN's monopoly on Monday night. It was different with the Vikings and Giants a couple of weeks ago -- that game was going only to a few selected markets. The NBC game is a national game.

So it goes. There's not a lot going on today; here are a few selections.

↵↵

4 p.m., ESPN: College football, AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl, Georgia Tech vs. Air Force at Shreveport, Louisiana. Well, that name is a mouthful, anyway. This game is also being played at an odd starting time to avoid conflict with Monday Night Football on ESPN.

↵↵

5:30 p.m., Big Ten Network: College basketball, Penn State at Indiana. Look! An actual game between two Big Ten teams!

↵↵

6:30 p.m., Versus: NHL, Wild at Blue Jackets. In case you're not in the mood for basketball or football.

↵↵

7:30 p.m., ESPN: NFL, Falcons at Saints. The Saints are pretty much locked into the 5th seed as a wild card, unless they lose both of their remaining games.

↵↵

7:30 p.m., Big Ten Network: College basketball, Tennessee-Martin at No. 2 Ohio State. Look! Another game between a Big Ten team and a hyphenated school!
