This week the Arizona TV schedule is choc-full of momentously important and interesting matchups. The big-time college bowl season kicks off with the Rose Bowl and the Fiesta Bowl, a couple NFL squads fight for their livelihoods, and the Suns actually play a game they might win. Hooray! Scrunched in the middle of all that commotion are plenty of solid college basketball tilts and the last game of the Arizona Cardinals' season. It should be an entertaining weekend.
