WATCH

SEC title game

Technically it's a conference championship, but it might be the de facto national title game: No. 1 Florida and No. 2 Alabama meet on Saturday (CBS). It's the fourth time the AP's top teams have met outside of bowl play since the BCS's birth in 1998. The last time? This game last year, when the Gators beat the No. 1 Tide.

WATCH

World Cup draw

We know which 32 teams will be in the 2010 Cup finals. On Friday we find out who plays whom. The field, split into eight four-team groups, will be set by random drawing in Cape Town, where the title match will be played next July. Not a soccer fan? There's still reason to tune in (Fox Soccer Channel): Native South African Charlize Theron will help host.

Winter meetings

A checklist for those going to baseball's winter bazaar: checkbook (G.M.'s), cellphone (agents), sweater (everybody). The four-day meetings begin on Dec. 7 in Indianapolis, the farthest north they've been since 1966. (Poor Scott Boras: He may get richer but not tanner.) Track the deals on the MLB Network.
