Much of the preseason hype has been focused on Mississippi State University women's basketball, but there could be a good team in Oxford, Miss., as well. The University of Mississippi has a 9-1 record following a 68-59 win over the University of Southern Mississippi on Dec. 12.

Tease photo

Tease photo

Tease photo

Ito Smith

Rushing yards have not been easy to find for University of Southern Mississippi senior running back Ito Smith. The Mobile, Ala., native entered the third game of the season still looking to break the 100-yard mark in 2017.

Tease photo

Solomon Muhammad

Solomon Muhammad, a linebacker at Alcorn State University, is already having a breakout year as a redshirt sophomore. He has nearly been a one-man wrecking crew on the Braves' defense during their two games thus far.

The Slate

The first week of the NFL season brought a few surprises. A major surprise was the Kansas City Chiefs' blowout victory over the New England Patriots in the opening game of the season.

Tease photo

Robert Brazile

When people discuss the greatest outside linebacker in professional football history, former New York Giant Lawrence Taylor is often near the top of the list. However, one could make the argument that linebacker Robert Brazile paved the way for Taylor.

The Slate

College football got off to a good start for some teams, including Mississippi State and the University of Mississippi, but others, such as Southern Miss, are still looking for answers. There is plenty of time for teams that lost to turn things around.

Conerly Trophy Hopefuls 2017

This year’s race for the Conerly Trophy should be as wide open as ever.

The Slate

The Slate

The NFL preseason is in its third week, and every team's starters are playing a good portion of the games. College football starts next week for most teams, but there are a few matchups this weekend.

Tease photo

Malik Heath

It is easy to see why Malik Heath's teammates and coaches compare him to Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant and Atlanta Falcons wide-out Julio Jones. His body control and ability to lock the ball in his hands is similar to those stars.

Tease photo

Lenorris Footman

Lenorris Footman signed with the Braves in 2013 after graduating from Jefferson County High School in Monticello, Fla., where he led his team to the 2011 1A State Football Championship.

The Slate

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott will have to work twice as hard to avoid a sophomore slump after the recent suspension of running back Ezekiel Elliott. Prescott has a chance to become a top quarterback in the league if he can keep the Cowboys winning.

The Slate

Tease photo

Donald Driver

Wide receiver Donald Driver is without question one of the greatest athletes in the history of Alcorn State University. Even though he played just three season for the Braves, he still ranks in the top 10 in the school's history in receiving yards and touchdowns.

The Slate

It is great to see The Slate start and end with football. Next week will have plenty of NFL action, as the rest of the league kicks off its preseason schedule.

Tease photo

Gabe Myles

Mississippi State University wide receiver Gabe Myles is one athlete on the watch list for the Wuerffel Trophy.

The Slate

Things escalated rather quickly at the University of Mississippi. Head football coach Hugh Freeze went from nearly untouchable to fired seemingly overnight.

Tease photo

Keontre Anderson

The JSU Tigers' defense could end up leading the team in returning to the top of the SWAC, and the pressure to wreak havoc on opposing offenses will fall on defensive end Keontre Anderson, who was named Preseason Defensive Player of the Year during the conference's media day.

The Slate

No one really knows how entertaining the University of Mississippi will be on the football field this fall. But one thing is for sure: The program is becoming a must-watch off the field.
