Ohio State at North Carolina: 9 p.m. on ESPN. Talking hoops here. The Buckeyes are ranked No. 1 in the coaches' poll, making it the first time in school history that the basketball and football teams have been ranked No. 1 at the same time. Carolina, meantime, is ranked sixth by the coaches and seventh by the writers.
Magic at Sonics: 10 p.m. on Sun Sports. You have to love late-night sporting events. Kids are in bed. No telephone solicitors calling. And, hey, bet you didn't realize the Magic has the best record in the East.
Late night viewing: Staying up until 1:30 in the morning is a challenge. Watching Carson Daly (Ch. 8) is even more challenging. But it's worth it to see Frank Caliendo, the master of the John Madden imitation. Also, if 1:30 is your bedtime, then before retiring you might want to check out the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. NASCAR driver Carl Edwards is one of his guests.
