For many fans in western Massachusetts, Thanksgiving wouldn’t be the same without some football no matter how cold it is outside.
We start things off with the decades-long rivalry between the West Springfield Terriers and the Agawam Brownies.
West Side hosted Agawam at Clark Field, where they beat Agawam 19-6.
Fans braved the frigid temperatures to cheer on both teams.
“I’m an alumnus from Agawam,” said Kevin Smith. “Class of ’79. Both my daughters graduated and I do this every year.”
The Agawam – West Springfield Thanksgiving Day game is one of the oldest rivalries in western Massachusetts.
