Get your turkey fryers ready.

Sources tell Voodoo Five that the 2015 USF vs. UCF Football game has been moved to Thanksgiving night, November 26th.

The game was originally scheduled for November 27th, but conflicted with the time of USF-Kentucky HoopHall Classic basketball game to be played in Miami on that same Black Friday at 5pm on ESPN. Whether that schedule conflict was a factor in this decision has yet to be confirmed.

We'll update this as we find more details. For now: what are your thoughts? Will you be tailgating in Orlando on the holiday? Does this effect your attendance at the game?

Discuss below.

Update: confirmed by UCFSports Brandon Helwig as well:
