Do you have playoff fever yet? Well if you don’t, that might be an issue because baseball will be taking over the Bay Area starting Saturday, as the A’s and Giants kick off their respective playoff series. Jarrod Parker and the A’s head to Detroit to take on the Tigers, while Matt Cain and the Giants are at home against the Cincinnati Reds.

But if for some reason baseball just doesn’t intrigue you, there are plenty of other games in action on this sports-packed Saturday, most notably college football. The No.18-ranked Stanford Cardinal look to rebound after being upset by Washington earlier this week, as they battle the Arizona Wildcats at the farm. Also, the Cal Bears play at Memorial Stadium against the No.25-ranked UCLA Bruins. Cal (1-4) is off to its worst start since Jeff Tedford took over as head coach, and things don’t look too good for them Saturday night either.

Soccer anyone? Chris Wondolowksi and the San Jose Earthquakes head on the road to face the Colorado Rapids. The Quakes look to build some momentum into the playoffs, as they currently own the best record in MLS.
