Rivalry weekend is alive and well on Saturday. The weekend's action kicked off on Thanksgiving Day with a matchup between Ole Miss and Mississippi State and continued with several huge matchups.

Before a big rivalry game tonight, one team suspended four players. According to Brett McMurphy, Louisville suspended tight end Joran Davis and running backs Malik Staples, Dae Williams, and Javian Hawkins for the game against Kentucky.

Here's the news from McMurphy.

It's a tough blow for the Louisville program that is in the midst of a terrible season. The Cardinals sit at 2-9 on the season and already fired head coach Bobby Petrino.

Louisville and Kentucky kick off tonight at 7:00 p.m. ET on ESPN 2.
