After a 1-0 win over Iran, the United States Men's National Team advanced to the Round of 16 at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Needing a win to advance, U.S. superstar Christian Pulisic scored in the 38th minute to give the team a 1-0 lead. The U.S. held on, despite an onslaught from Iran in the second half.

Next up for the United States is a battle against the Netherlands on Saturday morning. That means sports fans are in for an eventful day.

College football writer Stewart Mandel highlighted the schedule: 10 am ET: Netherlands-USA Noon ET: Big 12 title game 4 ET: SEC title game 8 ET: B1G and ACC title games.

Fans are ready.

"A win over the Netherlands ought to be enough for the USA to bump USC out of the playoff," one fan joked.

"Only 1 of those games matters and it is the one in Qatar," another fan said.

"I was worried the soccer was going to be at 2 near the end of the most important college football game of the weekend. God bless the schedule-makers and God bless the USA," added a third.

There will be plenty to watch this weekend.
