TWIS 11-14

A intra-divisional meeting of two of the NFL’s best teams and the crowning of NASCAR’s 2013 Sprint Cup champion highlight the upcoming sports calendar. Here’s what to watch this weekend:

Friday, November 15

Washington at (13) UCLA

Rose Bowl, Pasadena, Calif.; 9 p.m. (ET) on ESPN2
Unranked Washington (6-3) visits 13th-ranked UCLA (7-2) on Friday night in a Pac-12 clash. If the Bruins can win out the rest of the season, they’ll make a third straight Pac-12 title game. Huskies running back Bishop Sankey is the nation’s third-leading rusher, but he may find it tough-going against UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr and the Bruins’ defense.

Saturday, November 16

(10) Ohio State at (17) Marquette

BMO Harris Bradley Center, Milwaukee; 1 p.m. (ET) on Fox
Two solid NCAA hoops programs meet for an early season battle when 10th-ranked Ohio State (2-0) travels to 17th-ranked Marquette (2-0). Senior forwards Davante Gardner and Jamil Wilson lead the Golden Eagles against Aaron Craft and the Buckeyes.

(25) Georgia at (7) Auburn

Jordan-Hare Stadium, Auburn, Ala.; 3:30 p.m. (ET) on CBS
Twenty-fifth-ranked Georgia (6-3) will travel to seventh-ranked Auburn (9-1) on Saturday in a key Southeastern Conference game. Quarterback Aaron Murray leads the Bulldogs, while quarterback Nick Marshall and running back Tre Mason spearhead the Tigers’ running attack.

(12) Oklahoma State at (23) Texas

Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium, Austin, Tex.; 3:30 p.m. (ET) on Fox
The 12th-ranked Cowboys (8-1) look to improve their place in the Big 12 standings when they travel to Austin to face the 23rd-ranked Longhorns (7-2). Texas lost running back Johnathan Gray (torn Achilles tendon) and defensive tackle Chris Whaley (left knee) for the season in last week’s win over West Virginia. Clint Chelf will guide the Oklahoma State offense, while Case McCoy will be under center for the Longhorns.

UFC 167: Georges St-Pierre vs. Johny Hendricks

MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas; 10 p.m. (ET) on Pay-per-view
The UFC returns to Las Vegas for a welterweight title bout between champion Georges St-Pierre and challenger Johny Hendricks. St-Pierre is among the world’s best fighters, but Hendricks has serious punching power. Other notable bouts include Rashad Evans vs. Chael Sonnen; Robbie Lawler vs. Rory MacDonald; Josh Koscheck vs. Tyron Woodley; and Ali Bagautinov vs. Tim Elliot

Sunday, November 17

Ford EcoBoost 400

Homestead-Miami Speedway, Homestead, Fla.; 3 p.m. (ET) on ESPN
Five-time champion Jimmie Johnson comes into the 2013 season’s last race with a nearly insurmountable 28-point lead in NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series over second-place Matt Kenseth, as the drivers head to Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday. Kenseth and third-place driver Kevin Harvick each need good fortune to overtake Johnson’s points lead on Sunday.

San Francisco 49ers at New Orleans Saints

Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans; 4:25 p.m. (ET) on Fox
Drew Brees and New Orleans (7-2) take on San Francisco (6-3) in a battle of two of the NFC’s best teams. The Saints offense can overwhelm opponents in the Superdome, so 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh must prepare his defense well. Colin Kaepernick leads the San Francisco offense.

Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos

Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Denver; 8:30 p.m. (ET) on NBC
AFC West-leading Kansas City (9-0) visits Denver (8-1) in a clash of the AFC’s best teams. Save for an upset loss to the Colts, Peyton Manning and the Broncos would also be undefeated coming into this game. Manning will face an aggressive Chiefs pass rush led by Justin Houston and Tamba Hali.
