President trump and democratic rival joe biden are preparing to square off in the first presidential debate tomorrow night in cleveland, ohio.

Cbs's skyler henry is there with a look at what's at stake in this first matchup.

I am looking very forward to the debate president trump has both praised his democratic opponent's debate experience áand accused joe biden of taking "performance enhancing drugs": no i'm not joking, i mean i'm willing to take a drug test, i think he should too.

The trump campaign released a new ad monday suggesting biden can't speak without a teleprompter: but former second lady jill biden said viewers will see a very clear distinction between the two candidates when they tune in tomorrow night: "when the american people see joe biden up there on that stage, they're going to see what a president looks like."

Some voters we spoke with here in cleveland say they'll be paying attention to see which candidate speaks to their values áandá offers plans for the future.

"i want to hear trump's plan versus biden's plan for our country."

"i want to see women's rights talked about lgbt community talke about, i want to see black lives matter talked about."

Political experts say the debate is actually unlikely to sway undecided voters.

"those people, at this point in the campaign, are very few and far between.

So it's really making sure your base is going to turn out and support you on election day."

President trump said he hasn't spent too much time getting ready, drilling flash cards and videos in between flights on air force one.

And cbs news has learned biden is doing both in- person and virtual preparation.

Stinger no runway needed.

Cars of the near future.

We'll show you ahead on wcbi news at 6.

Engineers at mississippi state are designing cars of the future.

Flying cars and personal aircraft are the stuff of fiction and science fiction.

But as kris van cleave explains, the reality may here sooner that you think.

The fantasy of the flying car may finally be getting off the ground.

The toyota-backed company skydrive recently showed off a short, but successful test flight of the personal aircraft it's developing.

Innovators around the globe are going to new heights to create personal aircraft.... in all shapes and sizes.

03:43 we're seeing a lot of companies investing in this because the expectation is that by 2040 this is gonna be a multi trillion dollar industry.

Cnet roadshow's tim stevens says some are developing planes that double as a car..... but increasingly prototypes take off vertically.... no runway needed.

That includes uber's elevate.... basically ride sharing for the sky.

"uber wants to develop hubs that would exist in major cities where you could basically go there like a train station sort of thing, go up to the roof, hop in one of these things and then get out at the airport or maybe some station close to your home out in the suburbs."

Initially a pilot would be at the controls, but the plan is for the aircraft to eventually fly autonomously.

Airplane maker airbus is also working on an air taxi.

We visited their test site in oregon last year to see a flight&which only lasted a few minutes.

One of the challenges will be developing better lighter batteries that let these things fly farther and longer.

Their goal is launch a remotely controlled four seat craft called city airbus... but there's a major hurdle..... establishing regulations to manage the airspace.

"so a lot of questions need to be resolved before these things can really hit the air."

Uber is moving ahead and hopes to have a piloted aircraft by 20-23.

Skydrive is working to launch its personal vehicle that same year.

Costello's season opening performance...a lot of hype is already building for what the bulldogs can do for the rest of the season m-s-u cracked into the top 25 ranked at number 16 in the ap top 25 poll for the team's highest ranking since 2018 costello was named the s-e-c offensive player of the week amongst countless other awards following his 623 yard and 5 touchdown performance against the tigers while that is plenty to get excited about if you're a mississippi state fan...coach leach says there's still plenty of room for this bulldog team to grow "i'll be the first to tell you, our team and k.j.

All combined probably aren't nearly as good as your impression.

I feel like we have a long way to go.

I think there's a lot of work we can do and what's fulfilling about it is like i said we played hard and we had a winning effort but i see a lot of things we can do better and so do our coaches and our players do to.

That's the other thing they're committed to getting better.

I hope we can take a big step in that direction this week."

Ole miss might've not named a starting quarterback before hosting florida in the season opener however, it was matt corral who was taking a majority of the reps for the rebels besides the obvious that the rebels fell to the gators, 51-33 the offense wasn't the problem ole miss still managed to total 613 yards of total offense and corral finished going 22-31 for 395 passing yards 3 touchdowns and one pick as the rebels prepare to head to kentucky for week two of s-e-c play...head coach lane kiffin looks to clean up some of corral's play "i think he did good job with his feet, getting out of trouble.

I think he was very composed, really good at adjusting with him on the sidelines.

Both quarterbacks were.

His feet are a bit all over the place at times in the passing game.

We got to clean that up since he was late on some balls that were really open that ended up being completed that could have been touchdowns."
