In 2016, the United States dethroned China for its first-ever Paralympic gold medal in women's sitting volleyball. Those two teams have met in the gold medal match at each of the last three Paralympics, and while it remains to be seen if that will be the case again this year, they'll face each other in a preliminary-round match that could end up serving as a championship preview.

Elsewhere, swimmers McKenzie Coan and Anastasia Pagonis look to win their second gold medals of these Paralympic Games, and Roxanne Trunnell goes for a third equestrian medal.

Below is a rundown of what to watch on Day 6 of the Tokyo Paralympics. All events listed below can be streamed live on, and many can also be seen as part of the NBCSN broadcast.

USA vs Algeria (M) 7:30 a.m. ET Live Stream

The U.S. men close out the group stage against Algeria. Currently tied atop its group at 3-1 with Australia and Great Britain, Team USA is still jockeying for position ahead of the knockout rounds, as a higher finish in the group theoretically means a weaker opponent in the quarterfinals. They'll be heavy favorites against the Algerians, who have been outscored by 128 combined points in their four losses.
