Two big home games for the Lady Longhorns, and more

The Lady Longhorns have two big home games this weekend: Oklahoma State at 7pm Friday and Oklahoma at 1pm Sunday. The Sooners are the big rivalry game, of course, but OSU is the better team this year – they expect to challenge UT and A&M for the Big 12 title. Both games are at Myers Stadium; $7, but see www.texassports.com or "Soccer Watch" online for coupons that will get you in for $1. Last weekend, the Horns opened Big 12 play with two road wins: 2-0 over Texas Tech and 2-1 over Baylor. Carrie Schmit got both goals against Tech; Amy Burlingham got the game-winner in Waco in the 76th minute, off a 75-yard pass from goalkeeper Dianna Pfenninger, her second assist of the year.

Champions League game day two this Tuesday and Wednesday, and it was another huge week for the Brits, as all four EPL teams won (as did Glasgow Celtic). Arsenal and Manchester United both handled good Portuguese teams, while Didier Drogba got a hat trick to lead Chelsea over Levski Sofia in Bulgaria, and Liverpool held off Galatasaray Merseyside. All four teams lead their groups, a third of the way through; AC Milan, Lyon, Valencia, and Bayern Munich lead the other groups. Full results online.

One significant "upset" – Italian champ Inter Milan had a disastrous second half – two red cards and two goals allowed – in falling at home to Bayern.
