I'm sure you can watch it online somewhere. We'll have more on this later.

Lions fall short against Ole Miss | The Altoona Mirror
The Rebels continue to win against quality-ish-kinda-sorta out of conference foes. First, the Rebels beat Miami in Oxford, then they bettered DePaul in Chicago before eking out a win over Penn State last night in Happy Valley. I know it's not Duke, Georgetown, and Ohio State, but those are still wins over ACC, Big East, and Big Ten squads, something which I'm fairly certain Ole Miss has never accomplished in the same season (and nope, I'm not looking it up).

And the ladies are winning too. The Ole Miss women's basketball team improved to 6-1 on the season after Saturday's win over Grambling.

SEC Fans Rejoice Rematch; Other's Recoil | ESPN
If only Oklahoma State hadn't lost to the Iowa State "We're just happy to be here" Cyclones...

I'm not an SEC fan who is "rejoicing" this rematch in the BCS NCG, and I'm sure there are plenty like me. We already saw this game, remember? I don't like ESPN's (especially Ivan Maisel, a Southerner himself) narrative that SEC fans and Southern people think and behave monolithically, but maybe my resentment bone is a bit sensitive this Monday morning.

But, even then, I can't deny that LSU and Alabama are the two best teams in America. I just can't be convinced otherwise. Sorry, 'Pokes.

This should shape up to be a pretty exciting bowl season.
