Starter

Soccer United States vs. Mexico, 7:40p.m. (ESPN)

Both of these teams come into this game reeling from an embarrassing loss on Friday. The U.S. looked completely lost defensively in a 3-0 loss to Costa Rica and Mexico finally dumped their embattled coach after being beaten by Honduras in Azteca Stadium. ESPN is going all in on coverage, with three special cameras running on ESPN3, including a Star Camera, which will hopefully feature 90 minutes of Clint Dempsey's deuce face.

Semifinal: Argentina vs. Mexico, 5:20p.m. (ESPN3)

Semifinal: Puerto Rico vs. Dominican Republic, 7:50p.m. (ESPN3 & ESPN Deportes)

As one would expect from a tournament between Latin countries, there's a looseness to the play that belies its relative importance (the top finishers qualify for the World Cup). The result is some wonderfully nonchalant showboating like this dime by Dominican big man Jack Michael Martinez.

Being: The FinestFun City Bowl, 9:00p.m. (Fox Sports 1)

This documentary profiles the NYPD football team, which is apparently a thing. After the doc, Fox will air the 41st Fun City Bowl, an annual football game between the police and fire department. If the firefighters don't run the hook and ladder play, I don't know what to think anymore.
