Saturday Preview
With the NHL still out of play, we've loaded up on college hoops. There's also some soccer, curling, and the first rugby match since last August.

The weekend just doesn't seem right unless there's some EPL, and so we oblige. Birmingham hosts Wigan Athletic - the visitors get the draw.

A few miles down the M40, the English rugby team hosts Ireland in the Six Nations tournament. The sportsbooks have this one called as dead even, and we expect a cracking affair.

For those who prefer the big rocks, Sweden and Switzerland will be curling for bronze in Vancouver. The Swiss women couldn't get it done on Friday - will the men fare any better?

NCAA Basketball - Texas Longhorns at Texas A&M Aggies
With these bitter rivals both currently ranked, expect some Texas-sized mayhem in College Station. The Longhorns have dropped six of their last nine, and need to turn it around if they hope to go far in March.

We end our day in San Jose, where the Fresno State Bulldogs visit the Spartans in a game nationally televised on ESPNU.

Yesterday's Results
A successful day for Streakers, who hit almost two thirds of their selections. We also have a new leader with just two days left who is five games ahead of the nearest competitor.
