Your holiday meal consisting of the best plays from Thanksgiving's college football slate

Food and football go hand in hand on Thanksgiving, so why not fill your plate with the best plays from Thursday's college football action? Pull up a chair because, from the turkey to the stuffing, we've got it all.
Texas may have won the Chancellor's Spurs 41-16, but the Longhorns were the turkeys of the day when they were duped by Texas Tech's fake punt. Punter Ryan Erxleben dropped back behind his own 40-yard line before taking off down the right sideline for a 51-yard scoring rush.
Okay, a plate isn't edible (please, don't try) but, hey, you've got to have something to put all this delicious food on! Texas QB Case McCoy's 47-yard touchdown pass to Mike Davis in the first quarter helped set the table for the Longhorns.
Carbs aren't always the most exciting food on the plate, but they sure can sustain you. And late in Mississippi State's SEC matchup with Ole Miss, the typically humble side dish ended up stealing the show when Bulldog Nickoe Whitley stripped Rebel QB Bo Wallace inside the five to seal the OT victory for the Bulldogs.
Evan Sobiesk's missed field goal at the end of regulation almost served as salt in the wounds for what could have easily turned into a Mississippi State loss, but QB Dak Prescott altered the recipe for the Bulldogs. After all, just as a holiday grudge match means nothing without the "W," a Thanksgiving meal isn't complete without gravy. In overtime, Prescott's three-yard scoring rush added the finishing touch to Bulldogs' offensive drive, giving Miss State the win in the Egg Bowl. Gravy on eggs? Ah, why the heck not!
