Weekend Hot Clicks: Buckle Up, There’s a Lot of Sports Coming Your Way – Sports Illustrated

If you have to attend a wedding this weekend, we really, really, really, really feel sorry for you.

Buckle up for a huge weekend

For those saddled with weddings this weekend, my thoughts are prayers are with you. Here are the highlights from a sports-filled weekend: Verlander dominated the Yankees in Game 6 to force a Game 7 on Saturday night … Notre Dame-USC and Penn State-Michigan are among the delectable college football matchups …and Brett Hundley’s first start for Green Bay and the Super Bowl rematch in the NFL.
