Texas A&M Aggies vs. Ole MIss Rebels: Preview, Start time, TV coverage, How to Watch Online, and More - Team Speed Kills

Texas A&M Aggies vs. Ole MIss Rebels: Preview, Start time, TV coverage, How to Watch Online, and More - Team Speed Kills: So here's something: This is the only top-25 matchup on Earth this weekend!

And though hollow, that designation'll give this bout a bit of much needed cachet to boost ratings, because otherwise, after last week?

You remember last week. Texas A&M�lost by 18,�Ole Miss lost by 13; both lost essentially all playoff hope—Ole Miss especially. Especially. In an SEC vacuum however, both teams are OK! They have only one conference loss each, so theoretically, mathematically, both can still do it (and by "it," I mean, go to Atlanta).

But, that said, loser of this one can start looking ahead to 2016.

Over his last three games, Patrick Towles is completing 69 percent of his passes (78 of 113) and averaging 312.3 yards a game throwing. The Kentucky QB played the best game of his UK career so far last year against Mississippi State, throwing for 390 yards and two TDs and running for 76 yards and two scores.

The 6-foot-2, 230-pound senior is second in the SEC in passing yards (1,700) and has not thrown an interception this season in 225 attempts.

Make em Commit | The Hartselle Enquirer

Make em Commit | The Hartselle Enquirer: “Make em Commit” a simple motto used when duck hunting, but for one father and son from Danville Alabama, that motto has become so much more. It all started in 2008 when Josh Jenkins and his father Keith Jenkins were invited on a weeklong hunt in North West Mississippi. This would be Josh’s first duck hunt but that’s all it would take to get young Josh hooked for life. Over the next six years Josh would spend all the free time he could manage duck hunting, perfecting his calling and driving his mother insane. “I used to drive my mother crazy because I practiced calling so much” Josh said “She said that she would even hear them in her dreams.”

Through the six years, Josh realized though that this was much more to him than just a hobby, it was a passion. “One day I had the idea that instead of buying calls why don’t I make my own” Josh said “My dad had about eight weeks before he retired from GM so I knew I had to move fast, before I had even attempted to make one I had $100 worth of material sent to my house.” A bold move for sure but Josh never worried because he had faith it was going work. Despite being a little weary, his dad never went against his son’s decision. “My son has always had a special relationship with God” Keith said, “So when he said he had faith that this would work, I didn’t second guess him.” The truth was that Keith too felt like God was calling him to this business. “I kept trying to pull away” Keith said “but no matter how much I tried God just kept calling me back to this business.” Therefore, using a very old lathe that Josh’s grandfather had given him, Keith’s experience as a machinist and both of their passions for duck calls they set out to make their own duck calls, and were overjoyed with the results they got.

A Global Chill in Commodity Demand Hits America’s Heartland - The New York Times: A thousand miles south of Granite City, Ill., a gritty steel town on the Mississippi River, West Texas oil rigs have shuddered to a halt. Seven hundred miles north, mines in the Iron Range of Minnesota have been stilled.

STORIES FROM OUR ADVERTISERS





The drilling rigs, with their deep underground pipes, once consumed much of the steel that Granite City’s blast furnaces could produce, while the mines supplied the raw material.

So now, more than 2,000 workers at the mammoth United States Steel plant not far from St. Louis are waiting to see if they will be next. This month, the company warned them it might be forced to idle the plant. Layoffs could begin around Christmas.
