College football is finally back. Last night kicked off the college season with several good —and not-so-good — games, including South Carolina’s 41-13 romping of Southern Miss on national TV.Inside today’s EAGLE we have you covered with all sorts of football coverage:
For those interested in tonight’s Crosstown Classic, we have High School Spotlights on two tandems, Oxford’s Pegues brothers (Competition drives Pegues brothers) and Lafayette’s Dennis brothers (Dominant Dennis brothers pace ‘Dores).
Last night John Davis drove to Poplarville to cover Northwest’s season-opening win at Pearl River (NWCC Rangers get physical in win).
With Ole Miss’ season opener just one day away — finally — redshirt sophomore Melvin Harris is featured in today’s EAGLE and talks about his recent surge up the Ole Miss depth chart (Harris gets his shot to start).
Today we also released our GAMEDAY Preview football tab, focusing on the Jacksonville State season opener. Included is a preview of the JSU game, features on Nathan Stanley, Joel Kight and Jerrell Powe, a look-back at Ole Miss’ 1947 victory over Kentucky that pitted legends John Vaught against Bear Bryant, a Recruiting File focusing on offensive lineman Justin Bell, an article from Steven Godfrey and, of course, Pick’em. Packed full of good stuff, be sure to check it out by clicking HERE or picking up a copy at your nearest new sstand.
Rounding out the SEC Previews, John Davis takes a closer look at two first-year coaches (Tennessee’s Derek Dooley and Vanderbilt’s Robbie Caldwell) and how they’re hoping to get their programs headed in the right direction.
TWEET-TWEET: Be sure to follow both John Davis (@OxfordEAGLEJD) and and myself (@PatrickOchs) throughout the weekend on Twitter as we keep you updated with live game action. JD will be covering the Crosstown Classic tonight at Oxford, while I’ll be at the Boneyard, covering Water Valley’s game against Calhoun City. We will both be at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on Saturday covering Ole Miss’ season opener against Jacksonville State. (September 3, 2010)
