Sunday

Ordinarily, two losing teams squaring off in the final game of the regular season would barely register on the NFL radar. But when St. Louis (7-8) visits Seattle (6-9) for the NFC West title, we could see history in the making since no team with a losing record has ever made the playoffs. (8:20 p.m., NBC-18)

Tuesday

The 11th-ranked UK women's basketball team (11-1) faces its toughest assignment this season when it visits No. 3 Duke (13-0) in Cameron Indoor Stadium. The Blue Devils have won 15 games in a row at home and 38 of their last 39. This would be what the bracketologists like to call a "quality win." (7 p.m., ESPNU)

Saturday

The Big Ten should win college football's "Most Embarrassing Post-season" award hands down, but the BBVA Compass Bowl is making a late run at it. It wasn't enough that UK's starting quarterback was arrested and subsequently suspended from the game. Since then, Pittsburgh has fired one head coach, hired a new one, then fired him, too. Let's just hope the game is better than the pre-game show. (Noon, ESPN)

Saturday

The conference season is supposed to be the meat of any college basketball team's schedule. But the way most of the SEC is playing, Kentucky's toughest games might already be behind it. The Cats put that theory to the test in their league opener at Georgia. (4 p.m., WKYT-27)
