Gov. Phil Bryant signed House Bill 1390 yesterday, requiring all physicians performing abortions in Mississippi to be board-certifiied obstetrician-gynecologists and to have admitting priviliges at an area hospital.  "Today you see the first step in a movement, I believe, to do what we campaigned on- to say we're going to try to end abortion in Mississippi,"...

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Ole Miss took a 7-6 lead on a one-yard touchdown run by Jeff Scott early in the second quarter, but No. 1 Alabama responded and returned the ensuing kickoff 99 yards to regain the lead and won 33-14 on Saturday night. The Rebels (3-2, 0-1 SEC) went over 200 yards of total offense (218), only the third time the Crimson Tide (5-0, 2-0 SEC) allowed more...

1. How much does Bo Wallace play?   Bennett Hipp (@bennetthipp): To me, it depends on how the game goes. If Alabama jumps out to a big lead early, and the Crimson Tide defense is teeing off on Wallace, it would make sense to limit his playing time to make sure he’s healthy for potentially winnable games coming up on the schedule.   Matt Sigler (@SigNewton_2):...

The Ole Miss women’s soccer team (9-2, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) finishes a four-game road swing with matches at No. 24 Florida and Auburn this weekend, beginning with a Friday night match in Gainesville before returning home to play Georgia and Kentucky next weekend.   “We’re sitting on about six points, right about mid-table of all of the teams,”...
