NFL playoffs: It's hard to beat games at frigid Lambeau Field in January, and the NFC championship between the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers at 5:30 p.m. Sunday on KOKH-25 (Jack Buck, Troy Aikman, Pam Oliver and Chris Myers) should be competitive. It's unlikely the San Diego Chargers will put up much of a fight against New England in the AFC championship at 2 p.m. Sunday on KWTV-9 (Jim Nantz and Phil Simms).

Men's basketball: KOCB-34 has an OSU-OU doubleheader Saturday with Oklahoma State at Iowa State at 12:45 p.m. (Fred White and Bob Sundvold) and Texas Tech at Oklahoma at 3 p.m. (Dave Armstrong and Stacey King). OSU also makes a "Big Monday” appearance on ESPN when the Cowboys host No. 19 Texas at 8 p.m. (Ron Franklin and Fran Fraschilla). Stay up and watch Eddie Sutton's outmatched San Francisco team play at Gonzaga at 11 p.m. as Sutton continues his bid for 800 wins. Other Big 12 telecasts on Saturday include No. 10 Texas A&M at Kansas State at 3 p.m. on ESPN (Terry Gannon and Stephen Bardo) and No. 3 Kansas at Missouri at 8 p.m. on ESPNU (Clay Matvick and Jon Sundvold).

Women's basketball: No. 18 Oklahoma State plays at No. 19 Texas A&M at 1 p.m. Saturday on FSN (Mark Neely and Debbie Antonelli). On Sunday, No. 11 Oklahoma hosts No. 6 Baylor at 2 p.m. on ESPN2 (Pam Ward and Kara Lawson) and No. 24 Texas plays at Texas Tech at 5 p.m. on FSN. Nationally, No. 1 Connecticut hosts No. 3 North Carolina at 6 p.m. Monday on ESPN2.

•NBA: TNT has a good doubleheader tonight with Cleveland at San Antonio at 7 and Phoenix at L.A. Lakers at 9:30.
