Here is the latest Mississippi sports from The AP

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama's normally powerful running game hasn't been nearly so dominant lately. The top-ranked Crimson Tide managed just 66 yards rushing against Colorado State. Alabama ranks last in the Southeastern Conference in rushing and will likely have a tougher time beating No. 21 Mississippi Saturday night with that kind of production.

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Another week, another top 10 opponent for Georgia. When the ninth-ranked Bulldogs host No. 6 LSU on Saturday, they will be only the fourth team in the BCS era to face three top 10 opponents in their first four games. Georgia opened with a loss at Clemson and followed with a victory over Carolina. Now, it's the Tigers in a matchup between teams with national championship aspirations.

GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) -- Former Long Beach High and Mississippi State basketball player Marcus Bullard has been charged with drive-by shooting in Gulfport. The Sun Herald reports that the 38-year-old Bullard was charged with firing shots at an acquaintance on Dec. 26, 2012. The man was not hurt. Gulfport police have released no motive for the shooting.

KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (AP) -- Kevin Harvick will keep his Jimmy John's sponsorship when he moves to Stewart-Haas Racing in 2014. The sandwich company will serve as the primary sponsor of the No. 4 Chevrolet for 12 Sprint Cup races, including the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
