The Thanksgiving week end begins with an MSU men's home basketball game against Milwaukee while Michigan and UCLA play on ESPN in Maui at 7:30pm. The Red Wings host Calgary at 7pm. That's just Wednesday night. Come Thursday the Lions finally play a meaningful Thanksgiving Day game and they hope to end the Green Bay Packers' 16-game winning streak.
Texas and Texas A&M meet Thursday night and the 49ers and Ravens meet in a coaching battle of the Harbaugh brothers, Jim against John.
Four mid-Michigan teams play at Ford Field in the state high school football finals-- Fowler and Ithaca on Friday and Pewamo-Westphalia and Lansing Catholic on Saturday. Ohio State is at Michigan at noon Saturday at the same time Michigan State finishes at Northwestern. And there's more.
Friday afternoon, Iowa is at Nebraska and Arkansas is at LSU with Alabama playing at Auburn. Not a bad menu. Saturday at 3:30pm Wisconsin hosts Penn State and MSU fans will want to watch to see who they face the following Saturday in Indianapolis. And Saturday night Notre Dame plays at Stanford.
Happy Thanksgiving. That seems like a pretty good lineup. Oh and MSU's men's team plays a noon game Sunday at Eastern Michigan for those inclined to travel to Ypsilanti.
