London Olympics 2012: USA Vs. Japan Women's Soccer Final Live On NBC Sports

This seems like exactly the kind of 2012 London Olympics event NBC would prefer to show on tape-delay in their primetime network hours, but fear not: The 2012 women's soccer final, between Team USA and Japan, will air live on NBC Sports at 1:15 PM CDT. A rematch of the World Cup contest that saw Japan upset the Americans—and a chance, more broadly, for the Americans to narrow the gold medal gap with the Chinese—this promises to be an even more heated match than the Americans' wild win against Team Canada.

There's even a local angle; native St. Louisan Becky Sauerbrunn, who saw action in just one of those World Cup games last year, has been an important substitute on the Olympics squad. Of course, the individual focus will remain on Abby Wambach, who after missing the 2008 Olympics due to injury has been one of the most dangerous scorers in the London tournament.

For more updates, stay tuned to the SB Nation St. Louis Olympics stream (you are here) or the national's massive Olympics hub, which has everything you could want to know about soccer, medal counts, and creepy Olympic mascots (which is all of them.)
