In one of the best traditions in college football, the Alabama State Hornets are hosting the Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions for the 98th annual Turkey Day Classic on Thanksgiving Day, November 24. It is one of the oldest rivalry games in HBCU football, though most years, the game is between Alabama State and Tuskegee University.
There have been a handful of times over the years that there was an opponent other than Tuskegee, and then in 2013, the rivalry started including other schools nearly every year, though Tuskegee and Alabama State did face off in 2021.
The opponent in 2022 is Arkansas-Pine Bluff and interim head coach Don Treadwell said in a pre-game press conference with HBCU Sports that it was a huge bonus to get a few extra days for their game against Alabama State.
“For coaches, we typically never feel that we have enough time in a funny way, that’s just how we are, so yes, for us, having a couple of extra days is a bonus, if for nothing else than our own minds’ sake that we really get an opportunity to delve into the next opponent Alabama State, take a really good look at ’em,” said Treadwell, adding, “When you have a couple extra days to do that, you don’t have to put a game plan together on Monday. It gives us a little more time, as I said, to sit back and reflect on ‘OK, where are we at?’ and then the next opponent, how do we match up with what we’re trying to do against them.”
Arkansas-Pine Bluff fired its head coach Doc Gamble in October after UAPB lost five straight games. Offensive coordinator Treadwill took over the as the interim head coach and he said that has been a challenge.
“I think as an interim program, you’re always working against the clock, if you will … the ability to focus, which is where it has to start, has to come from myself and the staff and I think we’ve done a good job at that in the point being we haven’t been received, if you will, as the substitute teacher. … We set the tone early when the change did occur and I think bcause of the mutual respect that we have for our players and they have for us as a staff, we’ve been able to navigate through this challenging time,” said Treadwell.
The Arkansas-Pine Bluff vs Alabama State game kicks off on Thanksgiving Day, November 24 at 3 p.m. Eastern on ESPN Plus.

College Football Playoff Rankings 2022: How a 12-team bracket would play out this season

This is how the College Football Playoff would have played out this year with a 12-team field.
Although the College Football Playoff is expanding in two years, let’s discuss what the 12-team format would have looked like, as well as what could have happened if this set-up was implemented for the 2022 college season.
The four teams left playing for a national championship this year are the SEC champion Georgia Bulldogs, the Big Ten champion Michigan Wolverines, the Big 12 runner-up TCU Horned Frogs and a one-loss, at-large team out of the Big Ten in the Ohio State Buckeyes. While all have a chance at winning it, there are a few teams on the outside looking in who would have loved the opportunity…
Here is 100 percent how a 12-team College Football Playoff would have played out this season.College Football Playoff Rankings 2022: Proposed 12-team field
Before we begin, the proposed format that most people expect will be implemented as 2024 is as such: 12 teams are getting in, with half being the six highest-ranked conference champions and the other half being at-large bids. The four highest-ranked conference champions get a first-round bye into the national quarterfinals. Teams No. 5 through No. 8 will be hosting home playoff games.
Here are the 12 teams who would have made it in, in line with the proposed CFP rankings system.
The four teams getting first-round byes would be SEC champion Georgia, Big Ten champion Michigan, ACC champion Clemson and Pac-12 champion Utah. While nobody has any issues with Georgia and Michigan getting the top two spots, Clemson came in at No. 7 in the final playoff rankings, while Utah came in at No. 8. TCU, Ohio State, Alabama and Tennessee all get hosed here.
Conversely, the good news for the Horned Frogs, the Buckeyes, the Crimson Tide and the Volunteers is they would all get to host home playoff games vs. the other teams that are getting in. No. 5 TCU would host No. 12 Tulane, No. 6 Ohio State would host No. 11 Penn State, No. 7 Alabama would host No. 10 USC and No. 8 Tennessee would host No. 9 Kansas State. Got it? Cool.
The exercise we are about to do is interesting in so many ways. We will see how the home-field advantage in the first-round could help propel some teams into the quarterfinals. The reseeding of the field could give us more intriguing matchups than we largely expected. Most importantly, the size of the field itself has tripled. Ultimately, all the outsiders are asking for is one more chance…
So let’s get down to it with the four first-round games that will be played on college campuses.Next: 12-team College Football Playoff: First-round games Next1 of 5Prev postUse your ← → (arrows) to browse
