Anyone recommeSeptember 2012 sporting events in Orlando area

Taking my 20 year old son and 18 year old grandson to Orlando in mid September 2012. They both play soccer and follow the British football league teams. We'll be based in the Disney area first two weeks and then a week at Sanibel. Ideally I'd love to take them to an American Football game, but any big sporting event would be good.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received?

There will also be college football games--UCF in Orlando, USF in Tampa/St. Pete area. Should still be baseball (Tampa Bay Rays) in St. Pete. Great time of year for American sports!!!!!!

In September you'd also have Major League Baseball in Tampa with the Rays or if you want to head to Miami the Marlins. Also, that is preseason NHL games, so you could catch a Tampa Bay Lightning or in Miami you'd find a Florida Panthers game. However, preseason NHL isn't probably what you're thinking for a "big" event. But the NHL preseason schedule isn't out yet and likely won't be released in its entirety until the beginning of August. But Orlando has hosted NHL preseason games in the past, so it might mean not having to travel outside of Orlando for a game.

Also, if they like soccer September 19th the Tampa Bay Rowdies of the North American Soccer League (US Division 2, one step below Major League Soccer) are playing the Carolina RailHawks in Tampa. I'd think the league would rank somewhere around the bottom end of the step below the EPL. Their website is here: http://www.rowdiessoccer.com/
