By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Due to the crazy 2020 featuring the coronavirus pandemic, there was just one college football game on Thanksgiving. There was supposed to be two games.

However, the Colorado State Rams and Air Force Falcons game was canceled. Due to the coronavirus, that game will not be played.
