There are so many sports every weekend that it can be nearly impossible to keep track of them all. Here is a weekly guide to the five games/events/experiences that you will be in danger of missing if you make the mistake of going outside.
1. Mark Richt has lost control of Notre Dame. There would be no greater irony than if, less than two years after Georgia fired him for never winning a national championship, Mark Richt wins a national championship. No. 7 Miami has an insanely tough route to the College Football Playoff -- including a potential ACC title game matchup with Clemson -- but the Hurricanes can take a big step toward doing just that against No. 3 Notre Dame on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Miami looked great against Virginia Tech last week, but the Irish are another story. This is essentially an elimination game for the College Football Playoff. It's almost like we have an eight-team playoff already.
Also, as we do every week, predictions for the two college football teams I personally follow:
Indiana 21, Illinois 10. These are the two winless teams in the Big Ten. Even I'm not going to watch this game.
No. 10 Auburn, 28, No. 1 Georgia 24. A win here, as long as they can handle Kentucky and Georgia Tech, might just get the Bulldogs in the CFP even if they lose to Alabama in the SEC title game. Which is a pretty good reason to pick against them. This should be a tough, taut, scary game that may end in a Jake Fromm interception, which he will talk about as "a learning experience" when he's leading the next undefeated-in-November Georgia team in 2019.

3. The Falcons' last stand. Atlanta looked uniquely designed to avoid the year-after-losing-the-Super-Bowl curse heading into this year. But the Falcons looked awful in a loss to Carolina last week and now are in danger of falling under .500 with a home game against Dallas at 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday on Fox. The best way to have 28-3 live forever in Atlanta is to miss the playoffs this year and have that game be the only time the Falcons ever got close. A loss here might assure that happens.
4. KRISTAPS. What Kristaps Porzingis is doing for the Knicks is as fun as anything in sports right now, and you need to take time out of your busy schedule to watch him do it. Thus, make sure to second-screen -- while you're watching that Miami-Notre Dame game -- the Knicks hosting the Kings on Saturday at 8 p.m. on NBA League Pass. He is single-handedly turning the Knicks from a joke into a playoff team. It's really something to see.
5. It's time to boo Grayson Allen again. Friday night was the big opening day for college basketball, but it won't really feel like college basketball has begun until you've had a chance to throw something at your television while watching Grayson Allen. If you missed Duke beat Elon on Friday night, you can watch the No. 1 Blue Devils regionally on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET on the ACC Network against Utah Valley. That's how you know college basketball is upon us: Grayson's indomitable image.
