Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!

Thanksgiving day is, of course, known as an NFL football day, but the Egg Bowl will also be played tonight, so tune into that one if/when your’e sick of the NFL and too gobble-wobble to get up off the couch.

The other great thing about Thanksgiving week is that you get a full slate of Friday games to watch while you’re killing off leftover turkey and nursing a typically decent hangover. There are two big games Friday to watch: the ACC Coastal Division championship game between VT and UVa and a big AAC game between Cincinnati and Memphis. A Memphis win in that game means a rematch next week in the AAC Championship Game.

Saturday’s got some great games to watch, too, kicking off with a big rivalry game between undefeated Ohio State and a better-than-you-think Michigan squad that’s been playing great of late. Also in that noon slot is a bunch of ACC-SEC rivalry games.

The mid-day games features the Iron Bowl and a big game between Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Of course we have our match-up with the worst school and fan base in the country at 7:00pm. Also in the night-time round of games, Texas A&M plays their 9th #1 team of the year (okay, it’s their 3rd... but still), and you get a few nice intra-state rivalry games in Florida-FSU and Oklahoma-OK State.

Happy food devouring and football watching, folks! And, as always: GO TO HELL, CAROLINA!
