Two of the best Thanksgiving weekend traditions are still intact: NFL on Thursday and college football on Friday. College football will have a handful of ranked teams in action on Friday afternoon while a bunch more are playing Saturday.

There will be a lot of jostling for position for the top spots in the next College Football Playoff rankings. The first ranking was released earlier in the week with Alabama sitting on top. The Crimson Tide will be looking for revenge after last year’s Iron Bowl loss.

There were also five games canceled or postponed, four of which involved ranked teams, over positive coronavirus tests.

Here are the games on tap for this week. The number next to the school’s name indicates their Associated Press ranking.
