TOWSON, Md. — Despite COVID-19, the 100 year Turkey Bowl tradition will live on Thanksgiving Day.

Loyola Blakefield will visit Calvert Hall College High School's Paul Angelo Russo Stadium, for a 10:00 am kickoff on November 26.

The 2020 Turkey Bowl marks the first time the rivalry game will be played at either schools campus.

“After months of uncertainty, we are excited to officially announce Turkey Bowl 101. Generations of Calvert Hall and Loyola families have spent Thanksgiving morning celebrating these two great institutions, and we are elated for the tradition to continue,” said Br. John Kane, FSC, Ed.D., President of Calvert Hall.

This season will also be the first for new Calvert Hall head coach, Josh Ward ’04.

Although the Dons lead the overall series with a 49-43-8 record, the Cardinals have beat them in the last six match-ups.

You can tune into the game on WMAR-2 and streaming platforms.
