League’s Picks: 5 Best College Games To Watch Over Thanksgiving Weekend

It’s almost turkey day, and that means three things: good eats, gratitude, and of course, college football! There are some great games being played this Rivalry Weekend — and even a game on Thanksgiving Day!

Who are you rooting for?

Auburn vs. Alabama

This is the most intense rivalry in the country! These two Alabama teams meet each year on Thanksgiving weekend in the Iron Bowl, and Alabama is the current leader at 45–35–1.  While the University of Alabama has been #1 this year, Auburn University dismantled their other rival Georgia just two weeks ago. Definitely one to watch. 1:30 p.m. start on Saturday, November 25th, CBS . Shop League gear at Alumni Hall Auburn or the Supe Store.

Ole Miss vs. Mississippi State

Enjoy this classic rivalry matchup between Ole Miss and Mississippi State! Rivals since 1901, these two teams currently stand at  63-44-6.  It will be a close one as they are nearly matched for wins so far this season. 5:30pm Thursday November 23rd on ESPN. Shop League at University of Mississippi Official Bookstore or the Mississippi State Bookstore.

South Florida vs. UCF

There is a big one in Florida! Not only is the American Athletic Conference East division championship on the line, but the winner is a shoe-in for the Group of Five berth for the Peach Bowl. Expect to see some fired up fans for this is young rivalry between South Florida and University of Central Florida (only since 2005). 1:30pm Friday November 24th on Channel 15 (CBS). Shop League for the game at UCF Bookstore or USF Bookstore.

Michigan vs. OSU

University of Michigan is going to need to work hard on offense to get through the amazing defense of the Buckeyes. You will definitely want to watch this one. 10am Saturday November 25th on Fox. Shop League at University of Michigan Bookstore and The M Den.

Washington State vs. Washington

Battling once again in the Apple Cup, Washington State and the University of Washington have been rivals since 1907. The University of Washington Huskies are the strong leader with a record of 71–32–6, but a win from Washington State would send them instead of Stanford to the Pac-12 championship. 8pm Saturday November 25th on Fox. Shop League for this game at Crimson & Gray and University Book Store.

League Celebrates Local College Rivalries

There’s nothing quite like attending a college football game when you’re playing your rivals! Most college rivalries have a long and rich history, and while we don’t claim any favorites as a company, you can bet some of our staff have some strong opinions when it comes to local schools.  Whose side are YOU on?

Lehigh University vs. Lafayette College

Located only seventeen miles apart, Lehigh University and Lafayette College are one of the nation’s oldest rivalries.  Known as “The Rivalry,” the Mountain Hawks and the Leopards have played one another a total of 152 times.  Lafayette leads the series with 78 wins, 69 losses and 5 ties. The game predates trophies, so instead, the winner keeps the game ball.

Shop League looks at the Lafayette College Store and the Lehigh University Bookstore.

University of Pennsylvania vs. Princeton University 

Our local Ivy League rivalry between the Princeton Tigers and the UPenn Quakers dates way back to 1876! One of the most balanced rivalries in college football, Princeton has won 31 and Penn has won 30 of the games played since the formation of the Ivy League in 1956.

Shop League looks at the Penn Bookstore and the Princeton University Store.

Penn State vs. Temple University

The Nittany Lions and the Temple Owls are fierce rivals since 1931. After dominating three of the first four meetings between the two, Penn State went on to hold Temple win-less from 1941 to 2015, when Temple broke their losing streak with a 27-10 win over the Lions.

Shop League looks at Lions Pride & Penn State Book Store, and the Temple Bookstore.

University of Delaware vs. Villanova University

The Wildcats and the Blue Hens have held their rivalry since 1895. They played annually from 1964–1980 with a hiatus 1980–1988. The Villanova Wildcats currently lead the “Battle of the Blue” 28 to 21 with 1 tie over UDel. The Battle of the Blue was the first game played at Talen Energy Stadium  in Chester, PA.

University of Pittsburgh vs. West Virginia University

Called “The Backyard Brawl,” this rivalry dates back to 1895 — and the 1921 game was the first college football game on the radio, (Pittsburgh won that day). While the West Virginia University Mountaineers currently are ahead in the last ten games, the Pittsburgh Panthers have won the most overall.

Shop League looks at The University Store and West Virginia University Bookstore.

Bloomsburg University vs. West Chester University

This is our most recent rivalry, only dating to 1941 — but it’s fierce! West Chester’s Golden Rams lead in all-time wins at 49 to 27, but this year the Bloomsburg Huskies pulled it out in the last two minutes of the game to win 20-19! What a game.

Shop League looks at the Bloomsburg University Store and WCU Campus Store.

Franklin & Marshall University vs. Dickinson College

This rivalry dates back to the late 1880s when the two teams would use Conestoga Wagons to travel to visit each other — and still today when these two teams meet, the trophy is in the shape of the wagon! This year it was Franklin & Marshall gave Dickinson College quite the whopping with a shutout of 56  to 0.
