This weekend on TV: 'Good Wife' war begins; BYU battles Boise State; Utah tackles USC

In an episode of The Good Wife (Sunday, 8 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2) that the series has been building to since the middle of last season, Alicia, Cary and the other fourth-year associates finally break from Lockhart/Gardner and launch their own law firm - and the fireworks begin.

It's great stuff. Fans of the show won't want to miss it, and it could make a fan out of you if you aren't already.
