It is Thanksgiving weekend which not only means a ton of college football to watch but a lot of heated rivalries renew from Los Angeles to the Carolinas. A lot of fun “bowls” will take place … whether they be Egg, Iron, Apple, or an Old Oaken Bucket … that stir tradition, history, and local pride across the country. It’s also the final week of the regular season, where some teams are hoping to continue to be in the College Football Playoff hunt while others are lining themselves up for a higher caliber bowl game.
Plus, there are still some conference championship spots still out there.
As last week … really, every week … showed us is that you never know when or where the next upset will happen. As the four undefeated schools (Georgia, Ohio State, Michigan, TCU) are jockeying for a playoff berth, we already know one will suffer their first loss of the season on Saturday. Georgia just watched their opponent, Georgia Tech, waltz into Chapel Hill and stun North Carolina’s small playoff hopes last week, while TCU has spent the entire season avoiding getting clipped to stay without a loss.
With so much on the line this week, here are 15 players to watch as we reach the end of the regular season.
