Men's college basketball, Arkansas at Mississippi State (8 p.m., Starkville, ESPN or ESPN2, 105.9) and Ole Miss at Auburn (8 p.m., Auburn, Ala., ESPNU, 97.3 FM): What idiot came up with this schedule? Bulldog and Rebel fans don't want to watch each other's teams, anyway.

Friday, Jan. 29
College baseball, Mobile at Belhaven (3 p.m., Smith-Wills Stadium, Jackson): The boys of winter hit the diamond. Bundle up, folks. … College basketball, Sewanee at Millsaps (women, 6 p.m. and men, 8 p.m., Jackson): The Majors and Majorettes host a SCAC doubleheader at The Hangar.

Saturday, Jan. 30

Oxford, Ch. 12, 97.3 FM): The Razorbacks roll into the Tad to face the Rebels. You can only take this alliteration so far. … Belhaven at Tougaloo (7 p.m., Jackson): The Blazers call on the Bulldogs in an intracity GCAC matchup. … Jackson State at Mississippi Valley State 
(7:30 p.m., Itta Bena, 620 AM): The Tigers invade the Delta Devils' personal slice of hell. Burn, baby, burn.

Sunday, Jan. 31
NFL football, Pro Bowl (6:30 p.m.): Every NFL player wants to be chosen for this game, but none of them want to play in it. Moving it away from Hawaii probably isn't going to increase participation.
