Thanksgiving weekend means college football spread across Thursday, Friday AND Saturday. Here’s what to watch today.

Hope you all had a pleasant Turkey Day! Thanksgiving weekend brings us rivalry games spread across multiple days. Enjoy your food coma and online shopping with some college football.

Here are our picks for Friday's viewing windows:

Early (12:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern)

Navy at Houston (12:00 p.m., ABC): This is yet another game thought to be a big one that has lost some luster now that it no longer features an undefeated team. Houston lost its first game of the season last week against UConn. Meanwhile, Navy looks to be the new darling of the American Athletic Conference. This game is for the AAC West division title and home field advantage for the AAC Championship Game. Both teams are still in the hunt for a New Year's Day Bowl as well. Navy's Keenan Reynolds, who is one touchdown away from the NCAA all-time career record, could be reason enough to watch this one.

Missouri at Arkansas (2:30 p.m., CBS): This could be Gary Pinkel's last game with the Tigers. Missouri sits at 5-6 and would be bowl eligible with a win over Arkansas in Fayetteville. (Pinkel has previously indicated that he would coach the Tigers in a bowl game if they were selected for one.) The Razorbacks have been playing better in November, as they seem wont to do under Bret Bielema, and lost on a blocked field goal last week in an offensive shootout with Mississippi State.

Afternoon (3:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Eastern)

Washington State at Washington (3:30 p.m., FOX): Mike Leach's Cougars are having a successful season, sitting at 8-3 and ranked #20 in the College Football Playoff. Washington on the other hand, needs a win to become bowl eligible. The Apple Cup features a ranked team (Washington State) for the first time since 2003. The Cougars have not won in Seattle since 2007 but that could change this year.

Iowa at Nebraska (3:30 p.m., ABC): Undefeated Iowa faces their last obstacle to finishing the regular season undefeated. Nebraska is yet another of the teams on this schedule needing a win today to reach bowl eligibility. Can the Huskers defeat the #4 Hawkeyes? They "beat" Michigan State but it might be time to talk to your kids about an undefeated Iowa, if you haven't done so already.

Evening (7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Eastern)

Baylor at TCU (7:30 p.m. ESPN): This was supposed to be the big, winner-take-all game in the Big 12 going into the season. Now, the Big 12 Champion will be either Baylor, Oklahoma or Oklahoma State. The Bears need to win out and have Oklahoma State defeat Oklahoma in tomorrow's Bedlam game for them to be crowned the champion. That means taking care of TCU in a game where injuries abound on both sides and no one will admit its a rivalry. Baylor is down to its third string quarterback, with both Seth Russell and Jarrett Stidham out for the year with injuries. Star quarterback Trevone Boykin's status is uncertain for the Horned Frogs. TCU star receiver Josh Doctson is out for the year.
