Today, The Dispatch will kick off college football season with its first weekly college football page.
This week's page will offer a preview of this week's action, including five fast facts about Mississippi State's game, a schedule of games for the Southeastern Conference, Conference USA and the Southwestern Athletic Conferences and a national schedule of games.
As part of our weekly preview for MSU's game -- which this week is against Southern Mississippi at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Davis Wade Stadium -- the Dispatch will provide a weekly Q&A with someone involved in MSU's game-day preparations. Today's feature is on MSU's new sports information director Bill Martin, who works with the football team.
Also on today's page, The Dispatch will provide a feature about former New Hope High School standout Trae Collins, who hopes to make an impact Saturday when his Golden Eagles face the Bulldogs.
There also will be capsule previews of the best SEC games on Saturday, including Alabama's game against West Virginia in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
