PODCAST: Area teams have big-time matchups this week with playoff implications

By CAMAL PETRO AND ANDREW ABADIE,

On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast, Camal and Andrew discuss what’s left of the high school football schedule. Five area teams are still alive for the playoffs, and every team has a big-time matchup this week. We break down what Friday and Saturday night means for Sumrall, Lumberton, Hattiesburg, Oak Grove and Petal.

To close out high school football talk, we make our picks for which teams will play for a state championship in a little over a month.

After that, Southern Miss football is the topic. With a 2-3 record, we look at the remaining schedule and see what the path looks like for bowl eligibility. Also, USM’s rushing woes continue to hurt the offense.
