A rundown of games and events to watch for locally and nationally from the world of sports (all times Pacific):


NFL football, Seattle at San Francisco, 5:15 p.m. (ESPN): The game of the season so far in the NFC West pits the 7-2 Seahawks and MVP-candidate quarterback Russell Wilson against Jimmy Garoppolo and the 8-0 49ers, the league’s last remaining undefeated team. The Niners can take total control of the division with a prime-time victory at Levi’s Stadium.


Prep boys soccer, Summit at Forest Grove, 6 p.m.: After knocking off top-ranked Jesuit in Portland on Saturday, the No. 8 Storm will be out for another road upset when they take on the No. 5 Vikings in a 6A state semifinal match. With a win Tuesday, the Storm will return to the state final Saturday at Hillsboro Stadium, where they lost to Jesuit for the championship last year.


Men’s college basketball, Oregon vs. Memphis, 6 p.m. (ESPN); Oregon State vs. Oklahoma (8 p.m., ESPN2): The Ducks and Beavers will share the spotlight at the Moda Center in Portland for the inaugural Phil Knight Invitational. All four teams are off to 2-0 starts and will look to remain unbeaten with victories in this showcase doubleheader event.


NBA basketball, Toronto at Portland, 7 p.m. (NBC Sports Northwest): The reigning NBA champion Raptors make their lone Portland stop of the season as the Blazers play at home for the last time before a two-week, six-game road swing that will start Saturday night at San Antonio. The Blazers will not be home again until Nov. 27 against the Oklahoma City Thunder.


College football, Arizona at Oregon, 7:30 p.m. (ESPN); Arizona State at Oregon State, 4:30 p.m. (FS1): The Ducks go for a ninth straight win to stay in the College Football Playoff picture, while the Beavers, who are 3-0 in Pac-12 play on the road but 0-3 at home, try to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Washington and remain in bowl contention.
