Raise your hand if elastic pants are your friend this morning! Luckily today’s weekend preview is full of flavor and fun but light in calories.

 

Off to the gym,

The Last Night’s Game Team

 

PS – Unsure of what to do with those leftovers? Today’s Tailgate Treat has you covered.


COLLEGE FOOTBALL

Let’s get it on. The Apple Cup, Paul Bunyan’s Axe, the Iron Bowl….it’s rivalry weekend in college football and these are all trophies teams are competing for. The distaste for each other goes back generations but it makes for great football. Arizona and Arizona State will compete for the Territorial Cup, the oldest rivalry trophy in college football. Since rivalry games are full of passion, you never know who might take home a win. SCHEDULE

 

NFL (NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE)

What’s in a name? Minnesota Vikings' Everson Griffin and his wife welcomed their son into the world right before yesterday’s football game. After a key play, Griffen revealed his undershirt that said "I just had a baby boy, what should we name him?"   

 

OVERTIME

We saw so many athletes doing the right thing yesterday by giving back to their communities. Miami Marlins owner Derek Jeter (MLB – Major League Baseball) and his team handed out 1,000 meals to families in need, Kyrie Irving and Carmelo Anthony (both NBA players – National Basketball Association) worked with children in need in their cities and DeMarco Murray and 70 of his Tennessee Titan teammates (NFL) feed the homeless in Nashville a hot Thanksgiving meal.

 

SIDELINE STAT

The Cleveland Browns haven't won a game all season, but through the miracle of math they could still make the playoffs. They have a 1-in-19-quintillion chance. We were never good at math anyway. HOW?

 

Coaches’ corner

We love a good touchdown celebration and sticking with the Thanksgiving theme, the Minnesota Vikings celebrated with an Oscar worthy touchdown “feast.” WATCH
