Heartwarming Gesture. If you’re watching as Iowa hosts Penn State this weekend, make sure to keep your eyes peeled at the end of the first quarter. The Iowa Hawkeye fans have started a new tradition of waving to the children’s hospital that overlooks the stadium when the quarter ends (learn how that tradition started here).

NFL (NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE)
Early Alarm. The Baltimore Ravens and the Jacksonville Jaguars are heading across the pond this weekend to play a game in London. That means the game will start at 9:30am EST, more than three hours earlier than usual. Make sure to have your fantasy team lined up before then!
PGA (Professional Golfers Association)
Big Pay Day. The final leg of golf’s equivalent to playoffs concludes this Sunday in Atlanta. The winner of the FedEx Cup finals will take home $10 million and this sweet trophy! Scope out the top players here.
Safety measures are being reassessed at MLB (Major League Baseball) ballparks after a scary incident at a Yankees' game. A toddler was struck with a foul ball and ended up in the hospital, so now many teams are considering bigger safety nets.
It’s a rematch this year for the WNBA (Women’s National Basketball Association) finals. The Minnesota Lynx will face the defending champs, the Los Angeles Sparks, for a second consecutive year. Sunday begins the best-of-five series.
Sports history comes to the big screen this weekend. “Battle of the Sexes” depicts the legendary 1973 tennis match between top-ranked women’s player Billie Jean King (played by Emma Stone) and Bobby Riggs (played by Steve Carell), and there’s already a little Oscar buzz around it. Will someone please pass the popcorn?
