Thanksgiving Weekend has Ohio State/Michigan in prime morning time……..Sooners and Cowboys relax before Bedlam next Saturday


Ohio State should take care of business; There will be upsets aplenty this weekend


The Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Sooners of Oklahoma take the Turkey Day weekend off in preparation for their Big Twelve tussle next Saturday in Norman. The winner takes the conference title for 2016 and a spot in the Sugar Bowl, at least, and keeps hopes alive for a Final Four bid.  The kickoff is another roster start at 11:30 am.  OU is 9-2 and Oklahoma State at the same with one of those Poke losses to Baylor of the Big Twelve.  OU is a perfect 8-0 in conference.

The biggest game of the weekend will be in Columbus, Ohio where the #2 ranked Buckeyes host the Michigan Wolverines, who are just one spot in the country at #3.  Both have one loss and a win would be significant in getting into that Final Four playoff.  Ohio State is my pick.  Look for a 24-13 Buckeye win as Michigan will suffer at quarterback with their best quarterback out.
