In Cowtown, the league’s two private schools and last year’s co-champions meet in a rematch that lost some of its luster with No. 7 Baylor needing help to win a third consecutive Big 12 championship and No. 15 TCU coming off a loss that knocked the Horned Frogs out of contention.

GREEN BAY, Wis. — A prime-time game between the longtime NFC North rivals Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers is usually enough to make for must-watch viewing on Thanksgiving.
It will have to compete on Thursday with Brett Favre returning to Lambeau Field.
At halftime, Favre’s No. 4 will be unveiled on the north facade of the stadium next to Favre’s name alongside the Packers’ five other retired numbers.
It’s the culmination of a season-long reconciliation process between the team and their former franchise quarterback following their messy split in 2008.

It’s been 14 years since Perryton has played past Thanksgiving Day.
That was 2001, when longtime head coach Gary Newcomb, along with Perryton greats like former Army and Detriot Lions linebacker Caleb Campbell, Cuyler Dear and Cody Merrell led the Rangers to a Class 3A Division I state semifinal appearance. They suffered a 36-6 loss to Everman.
However, Perryton has found its way back to the third round of the playoffs. The Rangers square off with No. 3-ranked and unbeaten Celina (12-0) in a Class 4A Division II regional game at 6 p.m. today at Leo Brittain Field in Vernon.
