Quarterfinal round of the 2008 edition of the US Open Cup kicks off tonight in a few cities around the country. Plenty of interesting match-ups in all.

Below are the times and broadcast information for each game.

Kansas City Wizards (MLS) at Seattle Sounders (USL-1)

Like I said, all the matches have some interesting aspects behind them. New England is going up against the biggest underdog in recent Open Cup history. Could a USL2 club really make it through against the defending Cup champions? I think we will get at least one upset tonight in terms of a MLS club going down; look for Seattle to be that club. I am eager to see the outcome of the Charleston/Dallas match, this is the third straight year these two clubs have met in this competition. And as always, a DC-Chicago game is going to be interesting.

Stay tuned for results later on tonight!
