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.
