Thanksgiving weekend is traditionally a huge weekend for rivalry games and we have some of those this year with big implications. Maybe the biggest is (3) Oklahoma at (11)Okie Lite. Since the B12 doesn't have a playoff this game could essentially send the Sooners to the playoff. Also on Saturday we have (6) Notre Dame still trying to sneak in playing (9) Stanford who is out but would love to ruin the Irish's hopes. Down south we have a couple big ones (18) Ole Miss at (21) Mississipi State (13) Free Shoes U at (12) Florida as we see Sparkles trying to take control of the state of Florida with a better season than most of us expected. Another traditional battle that doesn't mean as much this year has (2)Bama at a disappointing Auburn. Can Auburn pull the upset and ruin Bamas playoff hopes. In the B1G the game to watch is (8) Ohio State against (10) Meatchicken. Now that they are both good again the game means more than in the past few years. Also don't forget the battle for LA with unranked USC playing (22) UCLA Friday's best games look to include: The Apple Bowl with Washington wanting to knock Washington state out of the top 25 is always a big one, this year at Washington. In a game that suddenly doesn't mean what it did a couple weeks ago (7) ****Baylor is at (19) TCU. (4) Iowa goes to ***raska with a chance for a 12-0 season and to play in the B1G title game for a shot at the playoffs. They can also deny kNU of a chance for a .500 season and a bowl game. Speaking of big mouth losers on Thursday Texas Tech visits Texas with a chance to extend their misery and give them their 7th loss of the season. Locally The Sheep are at a bad Fresno team and AFA is at an improving New Mexico. Each has already qualified for a bowl in the pathetic MWC. Wyoming hopes to put a painful season to rest hosting an also very bad UNLV team. The cold of Laramie might be enough to push Wyoming to a win over the desert dwellers CSU Pueblo plays Midwestern State U in Wichita Falls Texas in the second round of the D2 playoffs hoping to continue on to a second national championship.
