Today in the Daily Sports Roundup: Tulsa takes on Texas-El Paso, the Wild try to cool off the Avalanche, and the Dodgers and Phillies play Game 5 of the NLCS.

Colliding on the gridiron . . .

There’s one college football game on the schedule for Wednesday, with Tulsa at UTEP. The Golden Hurricane (4-2 SU, 3-1-1 ATS) will be looking to bounce back from a 28-21 loss to Boise State last time out; G.J. Kinne had two TD passes for Tulsa in that contest. The Miners (2-4 SU, 2-4 ATS) fell 35-20 to Memphis in their last game. Trevor Vittatoe threw for 319 yards and two scores in that defeat. Oddsmakers have Tulsa pegged as the 7.5-point favorite for Wednesday’s game.

Meeting up on the diamond . . .

It’s Game 5 of the NLCS between the Dodgers and Phillies in Philadelphia on Wednesday night, with Los Angeles sending Vicente Padilla to the mound against Philly’s Cole Hamels. Righthander Padilla started Game 2 of the NLCS, settling for a no-decision after giving up one earned run on four hits over 7 1-3 innings of work. Lefthander Hamels won Game 1 of the series, surrendering four earned runs on eight hits over 5 1-3 innings. Hamels fanned four in that contest.

Taking a trip around the rink . . .

Finally, the National Hockey League offers up six games on Wednesday, including Colorado at Minnesota. The red-hot Avalanche have started the season 6-1-1, and they got past the Red Wings 4-3 on the road in a shootout in their last contest. Craig Anderson stopped 28 of 31 Detroit shots in that game. The Wild, on the other hand, are off to a miserable 1-6-0 start this year, and they were beaten 2-1 by the Canucks last time out. Mikko Koivu had the Wild’s lone score.

Rounding out Wednesday’s action on the ice: Carolina at the Islanders, Buffalo at Florida, Vancouver at Chicago, Dallas at Anaheim, and Nashville at Boston. The 2-4-1 Predators lost 3-2 in shootout to the Capitals in their last game, and they’ve lost forward Jason Arnott for a couple weeks with an arm injury. The 3-4-0 Bruins fell 4-1 to the Coyotes last time out, with Tim Thomas giving up four goals on 36 shots. Bruins forward Milan Lucic had finger surgery and will be out for a month.
