Thanksgiving is known as the NFL’s holiday from a sports perspective, but Black Friday has become college football’s appetizer for rivalry weekend. While there are no NFL games on TV today, there is a full slate of college football matchups with 11 contests on the November 29th slate.
The Black Friday schedule is particularly strong during the early afternoon. Virginia Tech travels to Charlottesville to take on Virginia at 12 p.m. Eastern on ABC in one of today’s marquee rivalry matchups. The winner will advance to the ACC Championship to face Clemson next weekend.
Cincinnati takes on Memphis at 3:30 p.m. on ABC in a game with AAC championship implications. Washington battles Washington State at 4 p.m. in the Apple Cup on Fox. Both teams are out of contention in the Pac-12 conference race but this is still a major rivalry game. There is only one game on tonight’s TV schedule with USF squaring off with UCF in the War on I-4 at 8 p.m. Eastern on ESPN.
Texas looks to put a positive spin on an otherwise disappointing season as they take on Texas Tech. Texas linebacker Joseph Ossai noted the team still wants a strong ending to the season.
“You sense it, because no one’s given up,” linebacker Joseph Ossai told Hookem.com, per Burnt Orange Nation. “You see, if you watch the games, we’re still fighting. We still believe and we still have hope in him. We have hope in ourselves because we can get it done.”
