Rivalry games missing this weekend 

November, 23, 2012

Lone Star showdownBrett Davis/US PresswireTexas-Texas A&M is one rivalry game that should be moved to Rivalry Weekend.
Ah, Rivalry Weekend.

Thanksgiving weekend, the final full weekend of the college football season, is the realm of the gridiron giants. The games that divide states and households. The ones that have earned nicknames from Bedlam to the Civil War to the Iron Bowl. Contests played for 364 days of pride and trophies so weird they are downright cute.
