Good omen for Tennessee

Tennessee's football team has a better record (7-2 to 2-7) and the homefield advantage in this Saturday's game with Mississippi State, which is why the Vols are 23-point favorites. But there's another factor that may be weighing in the Big Orange's favor.

The game is being televised by JP Sports.

Playing on TV is no big deal to the Vols but it must be to the visiting Bulldogs. They've lost 15 of their last 16 televised football games, including the last 10 in a row.

Of course, Tennessee had better plan to do some blocking and tackling this weekend ... just in case MSU's TV jinx isn't enough to carry the day.
