September is one of the prime months on the sports calendar, as a culmination of major sports intersects to create a jam-packed viewing schedule. The NFL and NCAA football seasons have their opening kickoffs, the MLB pennant races reach their final moments, and in this particular September, Serena Williams is making the US Open a must-see event as she chases history.
To pile on, there are also plenty of soccer events around the United States, including action from both national teams to create a well-rounded month of September.
