One of the best weeks of the college football season is rivalry week. The annual Thanksgiving staple offers many intriguing matches, starting with the annual Egg Bowl between Mississippi State and Ole Miss on Thursday night.

College football fans will have a variety of Black Friday events to choose from this week, including ranked matches between No. 19 in Tulane and No. 24 in Cincinnati. But perhaps no game garnered more attention this weekend than the torrid Big Game between number two in Ohio State and number three in Michigan. The matchup almost always decides who earns a place in the college football playoffs, and 2022 is no different as both teams enter Saturday undefeated and look to win to keep their title hopes alive.
