MIAMI, Nov. 25 (UPI) -- Thanksgiving Day NFL games, a golf duel between Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka, and dozens of soccer, NBA, NHL and college basketball and football contests fill the sports schedule over the long holiday weekend.

Several men's college basketball matchups launch Thursday's holiday slate. NFL action starts at 12:30 p.m. EST, when the Detroit Lions host the Chicago Bears at Ford Field in Detroit.

Golf

The PGA Tour schedule does not include any events this weekend, but two of golf's best will face off Friday in Las Vegas. The fifth edition of The Match airs on TNT.

Rivals Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka tee off at 4 p.m. EST at the Wynn Golf Club. The respective No. 7 and No. 16 players in the Official World Golf Ranking will go head-to-head in a 12-hole format. They also will participate in a closest-to-the-pin and longest drive contest.

DeChambeau, Koepka and their caddies will wear microphones during the competition. They also will interact with fans and commentators Phil Mickelson and Charles Barkley.

That commentary should provide plenty of entertainment, as DeChambeau and Koepka frequently share trash talk while on the PGA Tour.

DeChambeau is a slight favorite to win the event.
