The Best In Sports In 7 Days

College football is back this week, and the games count for real. Every game matters in college with no preseason games.

Thursday, Sept. 1
    College football, (Fox Sports South, 7-10:30 p.m.) Mississippi State is the first school in action when they travel to face Memphis. MSU destroyed Memphis last season.

Friday, Sept. 2
    College football, (ESPN, 7-10 p.m.) TCU travels to Baylor for a Friday night match up. Plus, it's week three of high-school football around the state.

Saturday, Sept. 3
    College Football Saturday kicks off; JFP Sports will be doing a live chat all day long. (ESPN, 3:45-6:45 p.m.) BYU comes to Oxford in a big out-of-conference match up with Ole Miss, and (Fox Sports South, 9 p.m.-12:30 a.m.) USM faces Louisiana Tech to open the season.

Sunday, Sept 4
    College football, (ESPN, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.) Bethune-Cookman faces Prairie View A&M in the yearly MEAC/SWAC challenge.

Monday, Sept 5
    College Football, (ESPN, 7-10 p.m.) Miami (Fla.) starts their season against Maryland. Worth a look just to see who will be able to play for the Hurricanes.

Tuesday, Sept 6
    Major-league baseball, (Fox Sports South, 6-9 p.m.) Atlanta heads to Philadelphia to take on the Phillies in a huge divisional match with playoff implications.

Wednesday, Sept 7
    Major-league baseball (Fox Sports South, 6-9 p.m.) Braves and Phillies tangle for a second night in a row, while we await the New Orleans Saints vs. Green Bay Packers the next night.

Fun fact: Three teams in the SEC have never played in the SEC championship game: University of Mississippi Black Bears (the only team from the SEC West); University of Kentucky Wildcats; and Vanderbilt University Commodores.

I was hopeful BYU would put its feet to the ole miss bears on live television but I guess that isn't the case. Anyway, I hope my nephew plays well for the bears but ole miss loses anyway. Mississippi State is my team of the so-called big three. Why are they called the big three anyway? When was the last time they won anything big? Maybe Mississippi State will do so this year.
