Hope you have big plans on this All Hallow's Eve, which also is the birthday for Vanilla Ice, Christopher Columbus, Nick Saban and personal favorite John Candy among other noteworthy celebs.

Auburn goes to Ole Miss, and each team is among the top four of the inaugural college football playoff committee's poll.

We have been listing our top four college football playoff teams each Wednesday for a while.

1. Mississippi State (7-0, 4-0; vs. Arkansas, 7:15 p.m.): Are the Bulldogs ready for the November gauntlet?

We are halfway through the NFL season, and what do we know?

We have a ton of things to get to this morning.

Happy Monday. Or not.

We tried Wednesday to have at least one "Nationwide, we're on your side" jingle like in Peyton Manning's commercial in every segment of "Press Row" on ESPN 105.1 FM.

Gang, hope the week has progressed to your satisfaction.

The Giants cruised to a 1-0 lead in the World Series with a thorough and complete win over Kansas City.

The NFL is a paradigm of parity, and that, in part, makes it as popular as it is.

Ole Miss (7-0, 6-0; at LSU, 7:15 p.m.): Is this toughest test for Ole Miss to run the table?

Peyton Manning is a common topic around these parts, and we know there are some who think he's the bee's knees and some who circle his postseason mediocrity as the defining part of a great but not an all-time career.

It's Monday, so you know what that means.

Last week, Brentwood Academy cheerleader Griffin Cole and the rest of the Eagles faithful blew into Chattanooga, flexed their muscles and strolled back to Nashville with an easy win.

Peyton Manning is about to break the greatest record a quarterback could get and there has been very little discussion about it.

Here are five things we are intrigued by this week in the SEC:

How does Alabama respond? Nick Saban got ill with the media this week because it was Tuesday. Or because it was the media. or maybe because it was a Tuesday with the media.

OK, after yesterday's marathon opus that was about the size of an Encycelopedia 5-at-10ia, we are short and to the point today.

Let's rank the SEC and review the questions facing each team (with record and Saturday's foe). And everyone expected the college football world to revolve around the state of Mississippi, right? Right?

A wise reader of my daily "5-at-10" at timesfreepress.com said about three weeks ago that you know very little about the NFL until you're six weeks in.

Let's rank the SEC and review the questions facing each team (with record and Saturday's foe). Deal? Deal. And everyone expected the college football world to revolve around the state of Mississippi, right? Right?

Morning, how was your weekend?

The brilliant college career of Todd Gurley looks to be done.

Positioned in her regular spot three rows up on the home side of Spears Stadium, Betty Latham expected another sterling performance at a McCallie high school football game.

We were 4-5 against the number last week and are a positively pedestrian 21-20 this year. Gross.

Dodgers are done and they take the highest payroll — roughly $240 million or about $9.5 million per player in a league which the average salary is less than a third of that — on vacation. Again.

Here's our weekly ranking of the SEC football teams (with record and this week's EDT schedule) and questions facing each this week:

As the calendar turns and we prepare for the clocks to roll, the NFL picture is becoming clearer.

It's Monday, and we do what we do.

On a Friday night filled with rivalry showdowns and potential district championship games, Brainerd viewed the crosstown trek to Howard with a singular purpose.

Hope you are locked and loaded for the weekend.

The Rebels host the nation's best team when Alabama comes calling Saturday.

In recent years, college football Saturdays across the country have been christened by alliteration to try to magnify the meaning.

Four weeks into the NFL season, what do we know and what do we need to know?

Did we actually have an NFL week with no off-the-field drama? Did we?

Man, talk about divisional differences. Not since the Southeastern Conference has split have we seen such disparity. In fact, if Vegas was forced to set a line for the SEC title game this morning it blindly would be West minus-14.5, and they'd take their chances.

Wow, what a weekend. Where to start?

DUNLAP, Tenn. -- From the drive through the Sequatchie Valley to the trim of the numbers on field to the helmets and uniforms of every player on each team, purple ruled Friday night as Marion County rolled Sequatchie County 35-7.

Jay, I started reading your online blog after listening to you and David. I listen every day and you guys are great. I have lived in Nashville and Atlanta before moving here and you guys know more than any sports radio show I have ever heard.

Gang, remember the UGA-UT contest — pick the final score and you could win stuff — this week and the mailbag.

OK, we touched on this on Monday, and we'll likely have pretend Les Miles or pretend Jon Gruden breakdown the matchups of the Tennessee-Georgia game on Thursday's 5-at-10.

How well is the Lane Kiffin experiment going? We'll say off-the-charts good.
