WEEKEND PREVIEW WHAT TO WATCH FOR IN SPORTS

Super Bowl XLII

If the Giants knock off the Patriots, Tom Coughlin might even crack a smile. But Sunday’s game could be over by the time the second Budweiser commercial airs.

Lakers at Wizards

Without center Andrew Bynum, the Lakers on Sunday should have trouble stopping the Wizards inside. Of course, Washington probably will have a tough time stopping Kobe.

Virginia at Virginia Tech

The Cavaliers desperately need a win tomorrow after starting 1-5 in the ACC, including a home loss to the Hokies, who can’t afford to fall to another mediocre team.

Arizona at UCLA

The Wildcats have the toughest schedule in the country, and it doesn’t get any easier with tomorrow night’s game against Kevin Love and the Bruins.

Mavericks at Pistons

Eschew the Super Bowl pregame nonsense and tune into this contest between two of the NBA’s best squads. And believe it or not, this might be one of the best defensive battles of the season.
