Boston Sports On TV, Dec. 16: Patriots play late game vs. 49ers

Outside of the regular schedule of NFL football on a Sunday, it's a light day for sports on TV today. New England Patriots fans will have to wait until late in the day to see a big match-up with the San Francisco 49ers from Gillette Stadium. Before that though, they can wet their whistle with a little college basketball.

The Boston College Eagles will be hosting the New Hampshire Wildcats at home at 1 p.m. today. The Eagles have about two and a half weeks before ACC play begins. They'll open the the conference season at home against the North Carolina St. Wolfpack on Jan. 5.

The Patriots will face off against the 49ers in NBC's prime time game. Both teams have plenty to play for as a loss for the 49ers could make their next math-up with the Seattle Seahawks one that decides the NFC West division lead. The Patriots meanwhile are just a game back of the top spot in the AFC after Sunday's win over the Houston Texans.
