5 things to look for today 5 things to look for today

The Baltimore Sun


Name that team:

Here's the thing about Eastern Michigan (left), which plays Maryland at 1 p.m. at Byrd Stadium: Don't go with Eagles. Come on, how about something like Wombats?


Another name:

Down in Salisbury at 1 p.m., the Sea Gulls football team is facing Christopher Newport, which sounds like the name of a mail-order catalog offering wrinkle-free slacks your mother-in-law wears.


That other SEC:

Continuing the theme ... No. 10 Auburn is at No. 6 LSU (7:45 p.m., ESPN). Perhaps Auburn can confuse LSU by sometimes being the War Eagles and sometimes being the Tigers.


Still more football:

Hey, it's a Saturday in the fall. Third-ranked Dunbar takes on No. 15 Poly at Mervo at 6 p.m. in a game featuring two big-time running backs - Dunbar's Tavon Austin and Poly's Jon Marcus.


OK, some soccer:

Loyola College's No. 17 men's team travels to Mount St. Mary's (1 p.m.) and will try not to be distracted by any early fall foliage on the drive.
