Rivalry Week in the SEC will feel a bit different this fall. A pair of annual showdowns are moving to the Friday after Thanksgiving, commonly called Black Friday, in 2025.

College football insider Ross Dellenger of Yahoo Sports shared Thursday morning that Mississippi State-Ole Miss and Georgia-Georgia Tech will both be Black Friday games in 2024.

Mississippi State and Ole Miss’ annual Egg Bowl clash has a long history of being a Thanksgiving Day game, including 2017-19 and 2021-23. The modifications to the 2020 schedule due to COVID-19 had the game played on Saturday.

Per Dellenger, the 2024 Egg Bowl will get a 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff on ABC. The teams will meet in Oxford this season. Ole Miss won last year’s game 17-7 in Starkville.

Georgia and Georgia Tech’s Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate rivalry game will be played on Friday in primetime instead of Saturday. The 2024 meeting is set to be held in Athens. Georgia won last year’s meeting 31-23 in Atlanta.

Under the previous media rights agreement, CBS frequently featured Arkansas and Mizzou’s Battle Line Rivalry game on Black Friday. In 2022, the Florida-Florida State game was moved to Black Friday and aired on ABC under the ACC media rights deal, as FSU was the home team.

We’ll see if these reported schedule tweaks stick beyond 2024 or if other Rivalry Week games will be rotated to Black Friday slots in the future.
