The United States women’s national team is getting ready to take on Canada in the “Battle for the Border” (live, Friday, FOX Sports 1, 9 p.m. ET), but the ladies know that the biggest “football” game this weekend happens two days later: Super Bowl XLVIII.
In the spirit of the big game, several of the players offered us their picks or rooting interest. Seattle Reign players Hope Solo and Sydney Leroux predictably both favor the Seahawks, while Abby Wambach and head coach Tom Sermanni are among those going with the Broncos.
Overall, Denver was the clear-cut favorite among the “panel,” garnering eight votes to Seattle’s three.
