Thanksgiving and College Football...Americana at its best

Written by David DiCrescenzo on . Posted in Sports

Publisher's note:  As most Americans are preparing to sit down with family and friends over Thanksgiving Dinners, College Football locker rooms are starting to heat up with adrenaline powered rivalries all across America.  Let the Turkey and games begin.

Fundamental SEC:  SEC Thanksgiving Weekend includes Egg & Iron Bowls.  Once again SEC college football fans will be treated to a bounty of games over the Thanksgiving Day weekend starting with in-state rivalry between Miss State (7-4-0) and Ole Miss (5-6-0), better known as the Egg Bowl.  

Kickoff today is 7:30 p.m. ET (ESPN) and a win gives the Bulldogs their 4th straight bowl game.  The Bulldogs are also looking to bring the Egg Bowl trophy back to Starkville after a 17 point loss last year to Ole Miss.

For Dan Mullen it would boost his efforts and recoup his 2010 "Never losing to this team again" statement.  With QB Dak Prescott listed as doubtful, Miss State may look to the Ole Miss record on the road and claim Davis Wade Stadium as a key advantage.

Friday, November 28th Arkansas vs #17 LSU will likely be a win for the Tigers (8-3-0) as the Razorbacks (3-8-0) are 0-7 against SEC teams this year so why break a record now?  Hang in there guys remember Auburn's 2012 season?  Kickoff time is 2:30 p.m. and CBS will carry the game for those not shopping on Black Friday.
