Wednesday on Utah TV: BYU faces tough hoops foe; BYU prof faces crazy guy on "Survivor"

The BYU basketball team and a BYU professor face some tough times tonight on TV - in very different settings.

The Cougar hoops team travels to Hattiesburg, Miss., to take on a No. 1 seed in the NIT (6 p.m., ESPNU) - Southern Mississippi, which is 14-1 at home this season and has won 30 consecutive home games against non-league opponents.

And on Survivor: Caramoan - Fans vs. Favorites (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2), BYU English professor Dawn Meehan is not only on what appears to be in the much-weaker tribe, but she's still stuck with Phillip Sheppard, who is crazy annoying. Or maybe just plain crazy.
