Happy Thanksgiving to Big Ten Nation

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

As I sit here in O'Hare waiting for a flight to New York, I wanted to wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is made for football fans, so live it up!

I know I'm thankful for my first day off since late August. This will be my one and only post today. I'll be back Friday with a few updates, but things will be pretty light around here with no Big Ten games on tap this weekend. Certainly all of us will be paying close attention to the Civil War between Oregon and Oregon State on Saturday.

I also wanted to thank all of you for your continued viewership and support of the Big Ten blog. Your incredible knowledge and passion for the Big Ten and college football really makes all this worthwhile. You guys definitely keep me on my game. Thanks to all those who have written me, and I apologize for not replying to each of you individually.

For those of you headed somewhere today, safe travels. Enjoy the holiday and I'll check in with you Friday.
