Your Sports TV Schedule, 12/21: Bulls/76ers, College Football Bowl Action

OK, now you can relax a little -- the Bears are NFC North champions, and if they win their last two games, they'll have a first-round playoff bye and will be able to rest from Jan. 2 until Jan. 15 or 16. That won't be easy, because both the Jets and Packers are tough opponents. So, you rest up too and check out some Tuesday night sports TV with the Bulls, or some college bowl action.

5:30 p.m., Big Ten Network: College basketball, IUPU Ft. Wayne at No. 13 Purdue. If nicknames won games, this one would be fascinating: Mastodons vs. Boilermakers.

6:30 p.m., Versus: NHL, Devils at Capitals.

7 p.m., CSN Chicago: NBA, Bulls vs. 76ers at the United Center. The Bulls are banged up, and Taj Gibson may not play tonight. But they should still beat the 76ers -- not that we're making any claims here after the prediction about the Clippers game on Saturday.

7 p.m., ESPN: College football, Beef 'O' Bradys St. Petersburg Bowl. Refraining from making any comments about the name of this game, which is sponsored by Beef 'O' Bradys, a chain of casual restaurants headquartered in St. Petersburg. The participants are Southern Mississippi and Louisville.

7:30 p.m., Big Ten Network: College basketball, UNC-Asheville at No. 2 Ohio State. The parade of directional or hyphenated schools playing Big Ten teams continues.
