Most of the talk early in this week has been about what Mississippi State is doing during its bye week.

EUPORA â€“ Quarterbacks are often the leaders on the football field and Euporaâ€™s Trey Pittman is no exception.
MATHISTON - Jack Wilson is a student of the game.
As the quarterback of the East Webster Wolverines, Wilson tries to soak up as much knowledge as he can to best lead his team to victories on Friday nights.
"I love the game," Wilson said. "I try (to keep my head in the playbook). The more you are around it, the more you know. I've grown up in it. It's a plus for me since I'm around it so much."
There were some games that were considered definite yawners in week four of the college football season.

COLUMBUS â€“ The Starkville Academy Lady Volunteers showed their potential against Heritage Academy in the first inning and a half at the Propst Park softball complex Monday afternoon.
