Alabama continues to have the hold on the No.1 ranking in the country, but potentially displayed some more weaknesses this past Saturday against Colorado State. One thing’s for sure, and that is that the Crimson Tide defense is not a good as it was last season.
But that doesn’t mean that Alabama isn’t as good, or better than last season. With quarterback A.J. McCarron and a wealth of offensive talent, the Crimson Tide proved that they can even win shootouts, as was the case against Texas A&M earlier this season when they won 49-42 on the road against Johnny Manziel.
Alabama might get a challenge from Ole Miss, but playing at home this game seems far less intimidating for the Crimson Tide. The Rebels have had a nice start to the season, which began with a conference win over Vanderbilt, and then a couple games later a win over the Texas Longhorns.
Ole Miss is young, but they have plenty of talent, led by the top-five recruiting class that entered this season.
For the first time in a while, quarterback Bo Wallace has some big weapons on offense, and the defense has some standout players that are game changers.
The young talent of Ole Miss will have plenty on their shoulders against Alabama to try and knock off the top team in the land. The Rebels are probably a couple years away from seriously contending in the West Division of the SEC, but that gap can narrow big time with a shocking upset Saturday
