Sports Fan Weekend Planner


Campus is bone dry this weekend, but if you have wheels, or just a television with a cable connection, there will be plenty to keep you entertained.

Off Campus:

Iowa competes at the Drake Relays. Coming off a weekend in Iowa City that saw 18 individual championships for the Hawkeye, the Iowa track and field team is now set for one of the biggest track meets in the country.  The event has already started, as the Drake Relays cover Thursday, Friday and wrap up on Saturday.

Kerels travel to the Quad Cities. Just a short trip east on I-80, fans can see the Cedar Rapids Kernels visit the Quad Cities River Bandits.  The Bandits took game one last night, but the teams will meet again on Friday and Saturday night. Both games are at 7:00

Watch and Listen:

One more series to be decided. The San Antonio Spurs will try to keep the series alive as they face elimination tonight against the Memphis Grizzlies.  The Spurs came in with the top seed in the West, but Memphis has played them hard and is on verge of knocking Tim Duncan and company out in the first round.

Braves and Cards on FOX. Atlanta is hovering at .500 right now, but will look for a climb against 1st place the St. Louis Cardinals.  Both teams have won two in a row; the Saturday FOX broadcast will be game two in a three game weekend series.
