bill-swift - November 21, 2012

This is a week where we get to eat like an absolute pig and then lie around and watch a lot of great college (and NFL) action. Talk about something worth giving thanks for!

Rivalry games always rock, but many of them this season hold some pretty special significance in the national title chase. USC will still be tough for Notre Dame to beat even without Matt Barkley behind center. Oregon will have to win the Civil War to have a shot at getting back into the chase; something that the Oregon State Beavers will not make easy.

Alabama should have a pretty easy time hanging onto the No. 2 spot with a relatively easy match up in the Iron Bowl. Georgia could be in for a tough one should Georgia Tech get its running game on track.

Those are just a few of the many rivalry games being played this week. With at least 20 of them to look forward to starting with Texas-TCU on Thanksgiving it should be a great weekend of action!
