If this is the second week of September, then it must be time for the NFL season to begin.

And, that means Fantasy Football leagues get underway, which makes the sport the most involved game for fans of any sport in the world.

So, who went first in your league? That's a topic for this week's episode of Sportsland, Oregon, recorded at The Pit Stop in SW Portland.

Co-hosts Cliff Pfenning and Derek Weber chat up the fun of the league's season-openers, as well as college football and the huge game involving Rose Bowl champion Michigan State at Oregon, with its implications on the post-season playoff.

Oregon State heads to Hawaii, with a chance to go to 2-0.

Then, there's the Timbers and their continued push to reach the MLS Playoffs, and the future of basketball and its World Championships.

And, Major League Baseball is making its push toward the playoffs.
