Packers Lions Football

Detroit Lions football: A Thanksgiving Day tradition since 1934, for better or worse.


What we'll see


Though some say he could play in the NBA now, Andrew Wiggins will first have to spend a season in college. With Kentucky squarely in the hunt for high school basketball's No. 1 prospect, it's only appropriate that the 6-foot-7 junior give UK fans a chance to scout him in person. That chance comes at Scott County High School, where Wiggins and the nation's top-ranked high school team, Huntington (W.Va.) Prep, take on Christian Faith of North Carolina. (4 p.m.; tape-delayed broadcast on CWKYT-27.2 at 8 p.m.)

Wednesday, Friday

Kentucky Unforgettable Sean Woods returns to Rupp Arena when his Morehead State team takes on the Cats on Wednesday (7 p.m., Fox Sports South). Then, the day after Thanksgiving, Long Island University pays a visit to Rupp Arena (7 p.m., Fox Sports South). Those looking for something meatier, don't fret — Kentucky's next two opponents are Notre Dame and Baylor.


It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without football. (Well, OK, it would, but we wouldn't be quite as thankful.) The feast begins with Houston at Detroit (12:30 p.m., CBS-27). Next up is Robert Griffin III and the Redskins at Dallas (4:15 p.m., Fox 56). The Patriots visit the Jets in the nightcap. (8:30 p.m., NBC-18)


Lexington Catholic carries the torch for Fayette County as the last remaining city school in the Kentucky high school football playoffs. The Knights (11-2) visit defending state champion Highlands (12-1) in the Class 4A semifinals. (Time TBA)


Those still paying attention to University of Kentucky football — and it appeared Saturday night that was only a few of you — the season finale at Tennessee offers an opportunity for a rare occurrence. The Wildcats have not beaten the Volunteers in consecutive seasons since 1976 and 1977. Here's hoping Joker Phillips makes his farewell game a memorable one. (12:21 p.m., WKYT-27)
