It is Thanksgiving weekend, and that means turkeys, dressing, cranberry sauce and, of course, time with the family. Oh, and yes, college football. In fact, not just college football, but college football's rivalry week.
This is the time when states are split down the middle over a ballgame, a time when border states rev up the rivalry and tie bragging rights to the outcome. This is the time of year that many folks feel makes college football so great.
Now, teams that are not having the best season look to play spoiler to their rivals. Now, coaches on the hot seat will look to buy back some goodwill, and their jobs, by beating the teams their fans hate the most.
Rivalry week is when legends are made, championship runs are ended and heroes solidify a legacy.
2013 is no different. There is plenty going on from coast to coast that will make Thursday, Friday and Saturday a big deal on the college landscape.
There are micro storylines, such as coaches on the hot seat, teams looking to end streaks and disappointed squads looking to salvage a season. There are macro storylines, including divisional championships to be decided, conference titles to be secured and BCS bowls in play.
This is a big week, and across the nation, there is plenty to keep an eye on.
