MURPH’S ‘MOTE: St. Charles East grad successful on 2-point conversions

Shaw Media sports copy editor Kevin Murphy picks his top sporting events to watch on TV this weekend with a spotlight on local graduates:


College football: Michigan State at Illinois, 2:30 p.m. today, ABC

St. Charles East graduate Tim Russell is the placeholder for the Illini, and has thrown multiple touchdowns this season for the Illini on 2-point conversions, including one last weekend in a loss to Wisconsin.

College football: Eastern Michigan at NIU, 2:30 p.m. today, CSN

The Huskies haven’t blown out opponents at home. That should be different today against Eastern Michigan.

Batavia graduate Cole Gardner is a redshirt freshman tight end for Eastern Michigan.

High school football: IHSA Football Playoff Pairing Show, 8 p.m. today, CSN

Local high school football teams will gather to watch their names drawn for the playoff pairings. The first local team likely to hear its name called is Aurora Christian; the Class 3A draw is scheduled to be unveiled at 8:26 p.m., with the larger classes to follow.

College men’s soccer: Northwestern at Penn State, noon Sunday, BTN

Marmion graduate and Northwestern sophomore Mick Maley has played in two matches this season.


Pro baseball: World Series, Game 4, Boston at St. Louis, 7 p.m. Sunday, Fox

It was a miserable baseball season for Chicago fans, and I would rather not see St. Louis capture its 12th title. But then again, Boston also has won titles recently in 2004 and 2007.


NHL: Minnesota at Blackhawks, 7 p.m. today, WGN

The Hawks return home from a two-game road trip. The Hawks have a quick turnaround with their Central Division rival, Minnesota, again Monday night.


MLS: Fire at New York, 4 p.m. Sunday, WPWR

Well, because the Bears aren’t playing – it’s time to get behind another team – the Fire.

They look to clinch a playoff spot, and this futbol team is less aggravating to watch than that other football team in the city.
