What -- 87th Turkey Bowl

Who -- No. 3 Loyola vs. Calvert Hall

When -- Today, 10 a.m.

Where -- M&T Bank Stadium

TV -- Channel 2

Series -- Loyola leads 45-33-8

Outlook -- On paper, Loyola (9-1) would appear to be the heavy favorite in this traditional Thanksgiving Day matchup. Not only are the Dons facing their archrivals, whom they've defeated three straight times and 17 out of 21 overall, but they're also playing for a share of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference title with Gilman and McDonogh. And although the Cardinals have managed to score more than 10 points just twice this season, Loyola's defense has held opponents to a touchdown or less six times. To Calvert Hall (1-7), however, the daunting numbers mean little - improbable occurrences have become the norm in this venerable series.
