HOOVER, AL (WAFB) -

The WAFB 9News Sports team is there and will have updates on every broadcast over the next few days. 

Before the event got started, Jacques Doucet caught up with former LSU defensive tackle Marcus Spears. 

"It is a slap in the face. I will say. Look we booked people for homecoming, just to get them paid. You know! And now Florida has made LSU homecoming. This is crazy to me. This is crazy to me. Now you've created this big matchup. Not only all the things that happened last year, now when you book teams for homecoming it's supposed to be a guaranteed win, so you can have coronation, and Miss Florida can enjoy the celebration and all the alumni give money! We'll see what the Tigers do."

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3.
