This weekend on TV: RSL and USU are playing for championships
A pair of Utah teams - a professional soccer team and a college football team - will be battling for championships on Saturday.
At 2 p.m. on ESPN, Real Salt Lake will be at Sporting Kansas City fighting for the MLS Cup. This is a single-game final; if it's tied at the end of regulation, we'll go to overtime and, possibly, a shoot-out. Which is how RSL won the Cup in 2009.
And at 8 p.m. on CBS/Ch. 2, Utah State will be at Fresno State fighting for the Mountain West football championship. The Aggies are the underdogs, but you can't count them out.<
