?Michigan at Washington
ABC 3:30 PM
As any visiting quarterback quickly learns, calling plays at the line of scrimmage at Husky Stadium is about as effective as playing drinking games with a case of O'Doul's. Just ask Miami quarterback Ken Dorsey. Last year, in an early-season 34-29 defeat, Dorsey, then a sophomore, looked as lost as Jesse Helms at a Jay-Z concert as he futilely attempted to outshout the 74,157 fans crammed into the acoustically amped stadium. John Navarre, Michigan's inexperienced sophomore quarterback, can expect not only an aural onslaught but also a rugged afternoon opposite 300-pound defensive tackle Larry Tripplett.
?U.S. Open Women's Final
CBS 8 PM
With all those talented—and lithe—bodies running around the court, it now may be more manly to watch women's tennis than men's tennis. In fact, there's probably no better way to advertise the old I'm-hetero status than to demonstrate a working knowledge of WTA stars. So next time, Lennox Lewis, instead of a lame boast like "I'm 100 percent women's man," why don't you try the more believable "I'm 100 percent a Serena man"?
?Phillies at Braves
TUESDAY AND THURSDAY TBS 7:30 PM; WEDNESDAY FOX SPORTS SOUTH 1 PM
All season the naysayers have predicted that Philadelphia would fold and Atlanta would win the National League East going away. Well, the naysayers are right. The Phillies are going to fold, and the Braves are going to win the division going away. It's watching it unfold that will be the fun part.
? Dolphins at Titans
ESPN 8:30 PM
If the Dolphins were to replace rednecks as the topic of comedian Jeff Foxworthy's regular routine, the refrain would be, "You know you're not in the red zone when..." and the punch lines would include "your most important off-season signing was your placekicker, Olindo Mare," "you've got the best third-string quarterback in the league, only he's your starter, Jay Fiedler," and "you won your division last year, though your offense was ranked 26th in the NFL." True, Miami boasts a search-and-destroy defense, led by middle linebacker Zach Thomas and end Jason Taylor, but Tennessee had the league's top-ranked D last season. Plus, the Titans have Eddie George (above), a back who knows how to maneuver in the red zone (16 touchdowns in 2000).
ALL TIMES EASTERN. SCHEDULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
