It’s rivalry week and there are a slew of awesome games which are deserving of your attention. There is hate flowing all throughout the TV schedule, and for that you should be thankful. It’s Dawgs and Jackets, Gators and Seminoles, Tigers and Gamecocks, Irish and Trojans, and Wartiglesmen and Crimson Tide. It’s a beautiful day and and great week to be college football fan. Let’s get it:

Now for my picks for your best viewing options in each time slot...
#18 Mississippi St. Bulldogs @ Ole Miss
Rebels Landsharks, 7:30 p.m., ESPN
After a nice turkey-induced coma, wake up for a little Egg Bowl! Don’t worry, this game may help you drift right back to sleep.
#6 Oklahoma Sooners @ #13 West Virginia Mountaineers, 8:00 p.m., ESPN
The forecast for Friday is sunny and cold with a 40% chance of burning couches. There are a number of good games throughout the day for you to catch (including the Texas Longhorns taking on the Kansas Jayhawks, the UCF Knights being “challenged” by the South Florida Bulls, and the Washington State Cougars getting all Mike Leach-y against the Washington Huskies), but this one has the most implications.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets @ #5 Georgia Bulldogs, 12:00 p.m., SEC Network
I could do a long, complicated breakdown of this game. But I won’t. Everything you need to know about this game comes down to one thing: calculus. Georgia’s players don’t have to take it. Georgia Tech’s do (except they don’t). As we all know “4th and Reggie” Ball is one of America’s leading mathematicians.
And it’s not just any calculus. It’s Georgia Tech’s special calculus that only super smart people can do. Nevermind that I bought much of my college Ramen with money from Tech students I tutored in calculus. I learned UGA calculus, which is an inferior brand of calculus that is fundamentally different. Georgia Tech sucks because calculus. Therefore, your Dawgs will win. So celebrate that fact, but feel bad about yourself... because you can’t do the special calculus.
Auburn Tigers @ #1 Alabama Crimson Tide, 3:30 p.m., CBS
I find a number of things unappealing about this game. Alabama is probably going to absolutely take Auburn behind the woodshed. Which from a schadenfreude perspective, I kind of enjoy because... well, because I hate Auburn. But it doesn’t make for a great viewing experience. Then you have the fact that it’s going to be a 3 hour slobberfest of Gary Danielson fawning over Tua and Lil’ Nicky. I find Gary insufferable on most days, but I have a feeling this one may be truly unbearable.
But it’s the Iron Bowl and we’ve got Bama next week, so you watch it. If it gets too out of hand, switch over to... jeez... how is the 3:30 slate this bad? Tennessee/Vandy, I guess?
#7 LSU Tigers @ #22 Texas A&M Aggies, 7:30 p.m., SEC Network
I mean, sure, you could watch the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the USC Trojans in a traditional post-Thanksgiving matchup. But between Coach O and Jimbo, this game has the potential to get buckwild.
#21 Utah State Aggies @ #23 Boise State Broncos, 10:15 p.m., ESPN
A perfectly enjoyable way to end a great weekend of college football. If you can last this long.
That’s all for now, folks. Until next time...
Wreck Tech and GOOOO DAWGS!!!
