Once the feasting and positivity of Thanksgiving is behind us, college football fans turn their attention to some of the most contentious relationships in all of sports. With Michigan playing Ohio State and Alabama facing off against Auburn, this week's Top 25 schedule features several must-watch battles.
The Top 25 action kicked off with a good, old Texas barnburner when TCU visited Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium to play the Longhorns on Thanksgiving Day. TCU pulled off the upset, snapping the Longhorns' four-game winning streak.
The highest-profile game of the weekend occurs out with No. 1 Notre Dame set to face its longtime rival, USC, for the 84th time. Playing without Matt Barkley, USC will look to protect its home turf. The Irish currently sit atop the BCS rankings, but Marquise Lee and the Trojans will try to dash the Irish's championship dream.
Meanwhile, Florida faces in-state foes Florida State. The longstanding disdain between the teams is heightened this season thanks to their proximity in the rankings. To add more fuel to the fire, both Seminoles and Gators sport identical records this season. Each remains 10-1 heading into the afternoon matchup.
Which game are you most looking forward to?
