Looking for a football break? You're not going to get it anytime soon.

The month of November features NFL and FBS football on all but one day. That day is Wednesday, November 27th, the day before Thanksgiving. It's not anytime soon.

This week features eight games before Saturday even kicks off -- including the huge tilts between Oklahoma and Baylor and Oregon and Stanford on Thursday -- and it begins Tuesday with two games from the MAC.

The MAC is primarily responsible for this football overload. Without them, we would have soulless and football-less weeknights where we could watch things that don't have anything to do with football.

Here's a handy #MACtion guide.

And if you're looking for an excuse to see Northern Illinois' Jordan Lynch, the mid-week football slate gives you ample opportunity. The Huskies don't play a regular season game the rest of the season on a Saturday, with two Wednesday games and a Tuesday game remaining. You think he'll even be more of a focal point of the Husky offense to elbow his way into the Heisman race?

So rejoice, football fan. This is day five of 29. Say hi to your family on Wednesday the 27th. Give them a hug. Tell them you love them, and that it'll all calm down in December.
