San Jose (Calif.) vs. Abraham Lincoln (Calif.) — This is the best-named Thanksgiving Day game by far: The San Jose Big Bone Game. It’s been contested since 1943, with a preceding Little Bone Game between the junior varsity teams taking center stage a week earlier. As for the big bone in question? It’s a rather large cow femur used to record results from the game, not a giant wishbone from a gobbler. Lincoln has possessed the Big Bone for 22 consecutive years, thanks in recent years to a 7-0 victory in 2015, a 41-13 blowout in 2016 and a 49-14 victory in 2017 and a 51-6 rout of 1-10 San Jose in 2018.
