The leaves are changing, and the weather’s cooling down. That must mean it’s October!
October is one of my favorite months (not just because it’s my birthday month), but it’s also the perfect month for sports fans. There are a number of games to choose from, including college football, MLB playoffs, and the NFL games—all happening this month. We’re almost to the end of it, so here are a few games you should mark on your calendar.
All times are in Central Time.
#10 West Virginia at Oklahoma State
Saturday, October 29th at 11:00 a.m. on FOX
West Virginia looks to remain perfect in the Big 12 in a game sure to light up the scoreboard.
#4 Washington at #17 Utah
Time: Saturday, October 29th at 2:30 p.m. on FS1
The up-start Huskies face what might be their toughest remaining test of the regular season. A road trip to face the Utes is never easy—it’s even more difficult when you’re undefeated and you have the Pac-12 Championship in your sights.
#7 Nebraska at #11 Wisconsin
Saturday, October 29th at 6:00 p.m. on ESPN
The undefeated Huskers face their biggest test so far this season as they look to knock off the Badgers.
#3 Clemson at #12 Florida State

A match-up of ACC heavyweights in what will be one of Clemson’s toughest tests all year.
The baseball playoffs started earlier this month and we’ve already seen a lot of drama and intense action. The World Series begins tonight at 7:00 p.m. on FOX in Cleveland, Ohio, as the Cubs face the Indians in Game 1.
New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills
Time: Sunday, October 30th at 12:00 p.m. on CBS
The last meeting saw the Bills hand the Patriots their first ever shutout loss at Gillette Stadium. Tom Brady was suspended for that one but will be back under center for the rematch.
San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos
Time: Sunday, October 30th at 3:05 p.m. on CBS
These two teams met two weeks ago on Thursday Night Football in a nail biter that resulted in a Chargers upset. Denver will enter this game with payback in mind.
Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys
Time: Sunday, October 30th at 7:30 p.m. on NBC
The NFC East’s biggest rivalry and top teams face off in what promises to be a wildly entertaining game with high-powered offenses.
FOOD FOR THE GAMES
As I always say, you can’t watch football without some great couch-gating food. Here’s one recipe I absolutely love and get this—it’s pretty healthy. I can’t claim it as my own, though, I found it on Pinterest and it’s phenomenal.

I usually enjoy this snack with either ranch or blue cheese dressing!
