College football fans can also get their fix, with No. 8 Ole Miss heading to Starkville to take on arch-rival Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl at 7:30 p.m. ET.

Top Thanksgiving Day 2021 football predictions
One key piece to the 2021 Thanksgiving Day football parlay: The model is backing Ole Miss to cover the spread in Starkville. The road team is 5-1 against the spread in the last six meetings and Ole Miss won 31-24 in Oxford last season. That ran its all-time record to 63-45-6 in a series that dates to 1901. The Rebels have a star quarterback in Matt Corral and a trio of strong running backs. The offense ranks fifth in the nation in total yards (517.4 per game) and eighth in rushing (231.1). Corral has 3,100 passing yards and 552 rushing yards with a combined 29 TDs.
Corral is one of four players with more than 500 rushing yards, along with running backs Jerrion Ealy (643 yards, five TDS), Snoop Conner (561-11) and Henry Parrish (537-3). MSU’s defense ranks seventh against the run but 68th against the pass, so receiver Dontario Drummond (876 yards, eight TDs) could see plenty of action. The Rebels are tied for fifth in the nation in turnover margin, taking the ball away 20 times. They also have 37 sacks, led by Sam Williams with 10, Cedric Johnson with 6.5 and Chance Campbell with six.
