I will never forget growing up, I spent many Thanksgivings visiting my cousins in Tallahassee, Florida...home of one of the biggest college football rivalries. As I mentioned back in August, college football is a tradition in the South and Thanksgiving weekend is a big weekend for Rivalries. Here are five of my favorites that I have updated with times and tv networks for you.
- The Iron Bowl - #1Alabama vs #6Auburn
Saturday, November 25th - 3:30 pm - @ Auburn - CBS
- The Sunshine Showdown - Florida State vs. Florida
Saturday, November 25th - 12:00 pm - @ Florida - ESPN
- The Palmetto Bowl - #3Clemson vs #24South Carolina
Saturday, November 25th - 7:30 pm - @South Carolina. - ESPN
- The Egg Bowl - Ole Miss vs #14Mississippi State
They played Thanksgiving Day. Ole Miss beat Miss State, 31-28.
- Clean, Old Fashioned Hate - #7Georgia vs Georgia Tech
Saturday, November 25th - 12:00 pm - @ Georgia Tech - ABC
My guess is that if you are from one of these schools, you are either headed to the game or planning to watch it either at home or with some friends.
If you aren't from the South, you may not understand our love of football...and even if you are from the South, you may not love the sport and think we are crazy. But, even if you aren't from the South and want to watch some great football on a Saturday, think about checking out one of these great games.
