We’ have the big Lions/Packers match up on Thanksgiving Day (12:30 PM on FOX). Unlike the last match-up in Detroit, this should be a high scoring game. Greg Jennings has a bruised knee, but should be ready to play in his home state. The 4:15 game on Thursday is Miami at Dallas. There are 14 college games on Friday (you can watch live football for 14 consecutive hours), including Akron at Western Michigan at 1 PM. If you’ve got some time off Fri. afternoon, think about going to the game. The weather should be excellent. Western has an exciting, explosive offense and one of the best ends in college football in Jordan White (14 touchdowns, 1389 yards this season so far – tops in the nation!). On Friday you can see Iowa at Nebraska on WOTV4 at Noon, followed by Boston College at Miami. The BIG game Friday is Arkansas at LSU at 2:30 PM. Saturday is the big Ohio State-Michigan game in Ann Arbor (I think the rain holds off and it’ll be a relatively warm afternoon). That game is at Noon on WOTV4. Michigan State heads to Northwestern for a Noon match-up (Big Ten Network). I can’t rule out a shower sneaking into Evanston, but the early start means they should get most of the game in before the rain, the way it looks now. Penn St. comes to Madison for a showdown with my Badgers (who desperately want another shot at Michigan State). Notre Dame at Stanford at 8 PM could be a great game, too. That’s also on WOTV4. Good luck to our area high school football teams in the state playoffs: Lowell, Zeeland West, Constantine and Mendon. Here’s the schedule for Friday’s games, which are being carried on Fox Sports-Detroit.
