Gameday traveled to Jackson, Mississippi this week, to be a part of the Jackson State- Southern University matchup – a game between two HBCUs. Jackson State is coached by Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders – who’s led Jackson State to a 7-0 record. 

This week, Stephen A. Smith, who graduated from Winston-Salem State University – also an HBCU – will be the guest picker. 

Unfortunately, Lee Corso wasn’t with the team this morning, as he didn’t travel due to “health issues.”
