Wisconsin vs Minnesota Live stream. Unbeaten Wisconsin aims to stay perfect vs Minnesota, Wisconsin vs. Minnesota: What to expect from the Gophers
Wisconsin’s lack of victories against other College Football Playoff contender could make perfection its only path to the final four. Ohio State will be a daunting opponent in the Big Ten title game next week, but the West Division champion Badgers must be careful not to get caught looking past Minnesota, which has lost 13 straight in the battle for Paul Bunyan’s Axe. Wisconsin (11-0, 8-0 Big Ten) is looking for its first unbeaten conference record in 105 years, when the team went 5-0 in Big Ten play back in 1912.
The Badgers are also looking to lead the the all-time series against Minnesota (5-6, 2-6) for the first time ever. The two programs have fought to a mark of 59-59-8. Minnesota is coming off a rough 39-0 loss at Northwestern last week and looking to become bowl eligible in P.J. Fleck’s first year as head coach.
The team is currently fourth in the Big Ten in rushing offense (190.5 yards per game) on the legs of Rodney Smith (895 yards, 4.2 yards per game) and Kobe McCrary (476 yards, 5.8 yards per carry, eight touchdowns). They have rushed for 409 yards against Nebraska, 292 versus Illinois and 227 against Purdue in Big Ten play. The offense is 10th in the conference in points per game scored (24.1), however.
Alabama vs Auburn Live stream. Alabama Football: Auburn History, the Nick Saban Era
These friends would cheer against the Crimson Tide, McWhorter said, because Alabama was “such an awful state,” a place only a few years removed from Jim Crow that had repeatedly elected the segregationist George Wallace as its governor. But McWhorter, who later won the Pulitzer Prize for a book about the civil rights movement in her hometown of Birmingham, could not help herself. She rooted for the Tide.
Nick Saban’s impact on Alabama football is immense. To fully appreciate it, look back to the Alabama vs. Auburn series the ten seasons before Saban. From 1997-2006 the Alabama football record against Auburn was three wins and seven losses. Never before had Auburn won seven of ten games against the Tide. The primary architect of that Auburn domination was Tommy Tuberville.
The crosshatching of political and social developments against college football dominance has been a feature of Alabama life for nearly a century. The Crimson Tide’s emergence onto the national scene in the 1920s coincided with the Ku Klux Klan’s resurgence in the state. In the 1960s, football provided Alabamians a welcome point of pride during the tumult of the civil rights era.
New York Giants vs Washington Redskins Live stream. Giants vs. Redskins: 5 biggest pregame storylines
This is the first meeting between the Giants and the Redskins, who last battled in Week 17 of the 2016 regular season. Things are widely different than they were almost one year ago. Let’s take a look at the five biggest pregame storylines ahead of the Week 12 matchup. The Giants were hoping that 2017 had bright things in store for them since the franchise finished 11-5 in Ben McAdoo’s first season replacing the legendary Tom Coughlin. Both teams enter the game with several key players’ availability in jeopardy.
Entering the season, this was probably looked at as a solid matchup for the Thanksgiving night game. However, the Giants have battled injuries and find themselves out of playoff contention, while the Redskins are looking to avoid a three-game losing streak. The Giants haven’t played on Thanksgiving since 2009 when they lost 26-6 to the Denver Broncos.
Where can the Thanksgiving primetime game be viewed, listened to or streamed online by Redskins fans? He has 1,055 passing yards, eight touchdowns and two interceptions in his last four road games. New York’s run defense, meanwhile, has struggled to hold opposing offenses under 100 rushing yards in all but one game, Week 6 vs. the Denver Broncos.
Los Angeles Chargers vs Dallas Cowboys Live stream. Los Angeles Chargers vs. Dallas Cowboys: Prediction, preview, pick to win, Los Angeles Chargers: 3 Bold predictions vs. Cowboys on Thanksgiving
th regular-series meeting. Cowboys lead series, 6-4. Four of those wins came in San Diego. The game should be close as six of the 10 games were decided by six points or less and the four others decided by no more than two touchdowns. The Chargers have won the last two meetings. Thursday marks the first Thanksgiving meeting between the teams. The Los Angeles Chargers and Dallas Cowboys meet on up Thanksgiving day, with both teams looking for a win to stay alive in their conference’s playoff race. While the Cowboys are coming off two demoralizing losses, the Chargers throttled the Buffalo Bills in Week 11, improving their record to 4-).
Wide receiver Keenan Allen is well ahead of pace to notch the second 1,000-yard season of his career and the first since his rookie campaign in 2013. He has 56 receptions for 755 yards and three touchdowns through 10 games. He caught 12 passes for 159 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Chargers’ 54-24 throttling of the Bills last week.
At the same time, a Chargers win would change the outlook of their 2017 season entirely. With a date against the Browns in Week 13, the Bolts could very well find themselves in the thick of the AFC Playoff race come December. If that does indeed happen, you can look back at this Thanksgiving day game where it all started.
Minnesota Vikings vs Detroit Lions Live stream. Minnesota Vikings vs Detroit Lions Turkey Day Predictions, Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions: Prediction, preview, pick to win
The Detroit Lions (6-4) will play their 78th game on Thanksgiving Day against a red-hot Minnesota Vikings team (8-2) this Thursday. The Vikings bring the fifth overall defense while the Lions sixth-best passing offense. In a season where Detroit has not been able to run the ball or stop opposing runners, this game poses a lot of problems for coach Jim Caldwell and his crew.
The Lions won the first meeting by controlling the clock with 31 rushing attempts. That was done partly out of necessity in an effort to keep the Vikings’ menacing pass rush off Stafford. The Lions still want a balanced offense, but their line has improved in the last two months thanks to the return of Taylor Decker, and they won’t have the disadvantage of playing on the road.
The Detroit Lions are 2-2 against the Vikings on Thanksgiving all time, with the Lions winning their last three in a row against their NFC North rivals. It will be a battle of a high-flying offense against a lock down defense. Last year’s match up ended 16-13, with Matt Prater sinking the game-winning field goal for the Lions (shocker).
FC Cologne vs Arsenal Live stream. Cologne vs Arsenal FC predictions, betting tips and preview: Gunners to win the group with victory in Germany
Arsenal are all but certain to reach the Europa League knockout stage as group winners and are fancied to wrap up top spot by winning in Cologne. The Gunners have taken a very professional approach in their quest to emulate Manchester United by winning this competition and secure an automatic return to the Champions League group stage for next season. Arsene Wenger’s side won their first three matches before being surprisingly held 0-0 at home by Red Star Belgrade last time, but one point from their last two games will mean it is a case of job well done in order to secure the best possible draw in the first knockout round.
They have played the Gunners three times in European competition before this game winning once and losing twice. Arsenal have taken the Europa League seriously as they look to emulate Manchester United and lift the trophy. They started with three straight victories before being held to a goalless draw by Red Star Belgrade the last time out. They are all but certain to reach the next round but a win here will ensure they qualify as group winners.
The reverse fixture will be remembered more for the influx of German fans into London and subsequently the Emirates Stadium where the gunners won that tie 3-1 with goals from Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac and Alexis Sanchez enough to see off the Germans.
Everton vs Atalanta Live stream. Everton vs Atalanta preview, TV channel, kick-off time, date, odds and team news
Everton’s overall record this term, discounting the Europa League preliminary rounds, reads 20 games played, five won and 10 lost. Any hopes of bettering last season’s seventh-place finish in the Premier League, or indeed simply matching it, are surely now over. The Toffees have dragged their heels inexplicably since they sacked Ronald Koeman and desperately need someone to grab the club by the scruff of the neck and turn them into the force they should be after their big summer investment on new players.
Quite frankly, Everton are drifting aimlessly and have now won only one of their last 10 games, most recently being outplayed by the Premier League’s bottom club Crystal Palace on Saturday when they escaped with a 2-2 draw. They go into the game on the back of drawing against Crystal Palace in the Premier League – with the game’s big talking point being Oumar Niasse’s controversial penalty decision – which resulted him in being the first Premier League player to be retrospectively banned for an alleged act of simulation to deceive the match officials.
The task for Unsworth for the time being is to steady the ship which, in fairness to the untested manager, he has managed to just about achieve either side of the international break with a couple of encouraging league displays – certainly more promising than what came beforehand, at least. Thursday’s visit of Atalanta will be right down his list of priorities, of course, with a battle for third place hardly likely to get supporters fired up, and a five-match winless run in Europe suggests that things may look even worse come full time.
Baylor vs TCU Football live stream. TCU vs. Baylor: What to know about the Horned Frogs and Bears, TCU QB Kenny Hill out vs. Texas Tech adds another wrinkle to wild Big 12 race
With two weeks left in the regular season, TCU is right in the thick of the Big 12 title race. The Horned Frogs sit at 5-2 in conference play, have Texas Tech and Baylor left on the schedule and — with wins over Oklahoma State and West Virginia, both of which also have two conference losses, already in hand — are in control of their own destiny to make the Big 12 Championship Game.
They’re going to have to do it without quarterback Kenny Hill, at least for this week. Sunny with a high of 73, low of 46. No chance of rain. East-northeast wind 10-15 mph. Humidity 50 percent. If two teams are tied in the Big 12 standings, head-to-head determines who comes out on top. If more than two teams are tied, the conference will go through the following steps to break the tie.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported early Friday morning that Hill, along with safety Niko Small and kicker Jonathan Song, will not make the trip to Lubbock this weekend to take on the Red Raiders. Hill’s status has been questionable all week with an undisclosed injury. True freshman Shawn Robinson is expected to start in his place.

But, sparked by a defensive score, the Hurricanes stormed to a 30-0 run to finish the game and remain very much alive in the battle for a spot in the College Football Playoff.
The Panthers reached 4-5 on the season a few weeks ago, but have lost their last two games by a combined nine points. Two weeks ago Pitt gave up a fourth-quarter lead and fell to North Carolina 34-31, and they did the same thing last week in a 20-14 loss to Virginia Tech.
