Wake up early to catch the men's soccer gold medal match between Brazil andMexico at 10 a.m. ET. Some have calledMexico's run to the final unprecedented, but soccer fans the world over have known even before the Games began that the team would be vying for the gold against Brazil. On Friday, Mexico head coach Luis Fernando Tena confirmed thatGiovani dos Santos, one of Mexico's best players, will not suit up for the final after injuring his knee in the semifinal againstJapan. The game will be aired live on NBC Sports Network and Telemundo. Join the live chat with Yahoo! Sports expert Brooks Peck starting at 9:45 a.m. ET.
In women's basketball action, America's most dominant team will go for its fifth straight gold medal and 41st win in a row in a face-off against a French squad that has never medaled in Olympic competition. Tipoff for the women is at 4 p.m. ET. Join Yahoo! Sports expert Jeremy Stone during a live chat of the women's basketball final starting at 3:45 p.m. ET on Saturday.
After finishing with a silver medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the U.S. women's volleyball team will be seeking redemption in the gold medal rematch against Brazil starting at 1:30 p.m. ET from Earl's Court.

The race features the showdown between the U.S. and Jamaica and though the Americans ran the fastest qualifying time during Friday's heats in 37.38 seconds, that's nothing to be excited about.
