WTOK-TV partners with Cellular South to air five high school football rivalries live this fall.
The games will be professionally produced and include both pre-game and post-game shows.
The coverage for each pre-game show will start at 7 p.m. and kick-off is 7:30 p.m.
Here’s the schedule of games:

We will also air a 10-week series of documentaries on the Wayne County and West Jones rivalry. They are tentatively scheduled to air every Sunday afternoon at 5:30 p.m. on MyTOK2, starting Sept. 8.
We will also bring you a “Coaches Show” surrounding each of the five televised games. The dates and times for those broadcasts are not yet confirmed.
For those outside the WTOK viewing area, these games will also be broadcast on the channels of WDAM in Hattiesburg, WLBT in Jackson, WLOX in Biloxi / Gulfport, WABG in Greenwood / Greenville, WTVA in Tupelo / Columbus and WMC in Memphis. Check your local listings for actual channels.
