HDTV Listings for February 26, 2006

Kevin C. Tofel

What we're watching: There's plenty of sports action in high-def and it's not just the same-old, same-old. Two of the top three college hoops teams take each other on at 2 p.m. on CBS in 1080i. Villanova scratched their way to an upset by defeating then-number one U.Conn a few weeks ago, and it's time for a rematch in New England. This could be a preview of next month's Final Four and should be an outstanding game.

NASCAR takes to the track in Fontana, California for the Auto Club 500 at 3:30 p.m. on Fox in 720p. After the sun goes down, be bid arrivederci to Turin, Italy and the 2006 Olympic Winter games with the closing ceremonies on NBC in 1080i at 8 p.m.

Our traditional high-def listings continue below.
