The Best in Sports in the Next 7 Days

Thursday, Dec. 2

College basketball, South Alabama at Mississippi State (7 p.m., FSN/620 AM): Lately, the Bulldogs have been on TV almost as much as "Leave It To Beaver" reruns.

Friday, Dec. 3

High school football, MHSAA state championship games (all games on Ch. 29): Mississippi's greatest sporting event makes its annual trip to Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium. Weir (where?) plays Mize for the 1A title at 2:30 p.m. South Panola and Ocean Springs battle for the 5A crown at 7:30 p.m.

Saturday, Dec. 4

High school football, MHSAA state championship games (all games on Ch. 29): Today's the day to really pig out on prep grid. Booneville faces Lumberton for the 2A title at 11 a.m. Senatobia battles West Lauderdale for the 3A crown at 3:30 p.m. And the 4A title game between Brookhaven and Clarksdale caps the weekend at 8 p.m.

College football, California at Southern Miss (6:30 p.m., ESPN): Hurricane Ivan washed out this game back in December. Cal needs a win to keep its Rose Bowl dreams alive.

College basketball, Florida State at Ole Miss (1 p.m., FSN/97.3 FM): The Rebels better win now; victories will be hard to come by once SEC play begins.

Sunday, Dec. 5

College basketball, Mississippi State vs. Arizona (3:30 p.m., WGN/620 AM): The Bulldogs meet the Wildcats in the Wooden Classic. This could be an NCAA tourney preview.

Monday, Dec. 6

Pro football, Dallas at Seattle (8 p.m., ABC/620 AM): Even Cowboys fans don't want to watch their team play on national TV again.

Tuesday, Dec. 7

College basketball: Louisiana Tech at Jackson State (7 p.m., 1300 AM): Tech is one of those mid-major teams that turns up a lot on ESPN2 late at night.

Wednesday, Dec. 8

College basketball: Notre Dame at Indiana (6 p.m., ESPN): Watch the Hoosier State overheat on live TV.
