Welcome to Week 13 of the college football season, also known as RIVALRY WEEK!
There are the classics, like Oregon-Oregon State and Stanford-Cal. We'll bear witness to an Iron Bowl without Nick Saban on the Alabama sideline after he tested positive for COVID-19 this week.
Mississippi State and Ole Miss meet for another Egg Bowl featuring Elijah Moore, who became infamous last year with an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for lifting his leg like a peeing dog. This year, he returns as the nation's leading receiver.
In the spirit of giving thanks for what we can, we claim a few games -- like North Carolina-Notre Dame and Iowa State-Texas -- as new rivalry matchups due to scheduling quirks. Here are a few suggestions for trophies.
We'll be keeping up Friday and Saturday with all the highlights and Top 25 analysis.

Florida Man likes gravy
If you're one of those weirdos (like me) who doesn't like foods touching, this is basically an act of violence.
Nick Saban is out Saturday for the Iron Bowl after testing positive for COVID-19, but his daughter, Kristen, says she has it under control.
I forgot to mention I'll be filling in on Saturday. No worries. pic.twitter.com/KkovI1cKIW— KRISTEN SABAN SETAS (@KristenSabanS) November 25, 2020
Since the 2004 BCS National Championship Game (when Saban won his first national title), Kristen has given her dad a lucky penny before each game. She promised a special delivery this week.
It's funny that this is a "concern" by some people, but yes, the penny will still be delivered. I'm leaving it at his front door Saturday morning...not the typical delivery but it still counts. pic.twitter.com/vel8uKqbo2— KRISTEN SABAN SETAS (@KristenSabanS) November 25, 2020
