The Best In Sports In The Next 7 Days

Thursday, October 6
College football, Coahoma at Hinds (7 p.m., Raymond): The Eagles are looking for their first win of the season. If they don't beat the Tigers, the Eagles have big problems.

Friday, October 7
High school football, Northwest Rankin at Provine (7 p.m., 1180 AM/103.3 FM): A pair of Region 2-5A heavyweights tangle at Hughes Field. … Madison Central at Murrah (7 p.m., 620 AM): Another tasty 2-5A showdown.

Saturday, October 8
College football, Alabama State at Jackson State (5:45 p.m., 105.9 FM): Both teams are unbeaten in the SWAC East. … Shorter at Belhaven (1:30 p.m.). … Mississippi State at Florida (11:30 a.m., Ch. 12/105.9 FM): For Gators and masochists only.

Sunday, October 9
Pro football, New Orleans at Green Bay (noon, Ch. 35/620 AM): Brett Favre is presiding over a crumbling dynasty in Wisconsin. But playing the Saints is often good for what ails bad teams.

Monday, October 10
Pro football, Pittsburgh at San Diego (8 p.m., Ch. 16/930 AM): This game should pack all the subtlety and finesse of a fist in the teeth.

Tuesday, October 11
Pro baseball, AL Championship Series, teams TBD (7 p.m., Ch. 35/930 AM): Here's hoping we don't have to watch the Yankees and Red Sox again.

Wednesday, October 12
Pro baseball, NL Championship Series, teams TBD (7 p.m., Ch. 35/930 AM).
