National Football League:
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Minnesota Vikings - 8 p.m. (NFL Network, 93.7 FM): The Vikings come into this game a half-game behind the Chicago Bears for the NFC North Division lead. Running back Adrian Peterson has run for 652 yards and three touchdowns this season. Although the Buccaneers have the third best rushing defense in the NFL, they have lost nine games in a row on the road.
Clemson Tigers vs. Wake Forest Demon Deacons - 7:30 p.m. (ESPN): The Tigers are only a half game behind the Florida St. Seminoles for first place in the ACC Atlantic Division. Their offense ranks in the top 40 in both rushing and in passing so they should match up well with the Demon Deacons.
