    MIAMI, Nov. 25 (UPI) — Thanksgiving Day NFL games, a golf duel between Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka, and dozens of soccer, NBA, NHL and college basketball and football contests fill the sports schedule over the long holiday weekend.

    Several men’s college basketball matchups launch Thursday’s holiday slate. NFL action starts at 12:30 p.m. EST, when the Detroit Lions host the Chicago Bears at Ford Field in Detroit.

    A trio of college football games and an MLS Cup playoff game also air Thursday on national TV.

    NFL matchups

    The NFC North division rivalry between the Lions (0-9-1) and Bears (3-7) will be the first of three NFL games Thursday. That matchup airs on Fox.

    Running back Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys (7-3) host the Las Vegas Raiders (5-5) in the second game at 4:30 p.m. EST on CBS.

    Quarterback Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills (6-4) face the New Orleans Saints (5-5) in the NFL’s Thanksgiving nightcap at 8:20 p.m. in New Orleans. That game airs on NBC.

    The Week 12 schedule continues with 11 games Sunday and one game Monday.

    Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-3) face the Indianapolis Colts (6-5) in one of several 1 p.m. Sunday matchups. That game airs on Fox.

    Ryan Tannehill and the Tennessee Titans (8-3) face the New England Patriots (7-4) at 1 p.m. on CBS. The Cincinnati Bengals (6-4) host the Pittsburgh Steelers (5-4-1) in an important AFC North division matchup at the same time on the same network.

    Later Sunday, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (8-3) face the Los Angeles Rams (7-3) at 4:25 p.m. on Fox. The Baltimore Ravens (7-3) host the Cleveland Browns (6-5) in another AFC North matchup at 8:20 p.m. on NBC.

    Golf

    The PGA Tour schedule does not include any events this weekend, but two of golf’s best will face off Friday in Las Vegas. The fifth edition of The Match airs on TNT.

    Rivals Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka tee off at 4 p.m. EST at the Wynn Golf Club. The respective No. 7 and No. 16 players in the Official World Golf Ranking will go head-to-head in a 12-hole format. They also will participate in a closest-to-the-pin and longest drive contest.

    DeChambeau, Koepka and their caddies will wear microphones during the competition. They also will interact with fans and commentators Phil Mickelson and Charles Barkley.

    That commentary should provide plenty of entertainment, as DeChambeau and Koepka frequently share trash talk while on the PGA Tour.

    DeChambeau is a slight favorite to win the event.

    Profits from the contest will go to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Advocates Pro Golf Association Tour and Shriners Hospital, in addition to other charities.

    College football

    Several games with College Football Playoff implications air Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Mississippi, the No. 9 team in the College Football Playoff rankings, faces Mississippi State at 7:30 p.m. EST Thursday on ESPN.

    No. 21 San Diego State faces Boise State at noon Friday on CBS. Later Friday, No. 16 Iowa battles Nebraska at 1:30 p.m. on Big Ten Network. No. 4 Cincinnati faces East Carolina at 3:30 p.m. on ABC.

    Top-ranked Georgia launches Saturday’s slate with a noon game against Georgia Tech on ABC. No. 12 Michigan State also faces Penn State at noon on Fox.

    One of the biggest rivalries in sports, featuring No. 2 Ohio State against No. 5 Michigan, also airs at noon Sunday on Fox.

    No. 8 Baylor hosts Texas Tech at noon on FS1. No. 3 Alabama battles Auburn in an SEC matchup at 3:30 p.m. on CBS. No. 10 Oklahoma faces No. 7 Oklahoma State in another rivalry game at 7:30 p.m. on ABC.
