How to Watch Ole Miss vs. Alabama

Share

Alabama (5-0, 2-0) has outscored Vanderbilt (69-0) and MS (66-3) by a combined score of 125-3 in its last two games, scoring at least 50 points in consecutive conference games for the first time since 1945.

"But you better be able to block 'em", he said.

"This is by far the strongest team we've played to this point, all the way around", Saban said Monday.

It was against Ole Miss a year ago when Jalen Hurts truly solidified his place as Alabama's unquestioned starting quarterback. It also set up a touchdown pass to Hentges two plays later to give Alabama a 21-0 lead, signaling that this was going to be a runaway victory for Alabama.

"This is another division game against a good team".

Finally, the Tide are averaging 316 yards per game on the ground this season, while allowing just 77. Ole Miss linebackers. The Tide has four players, including QB Jalen Hurts, who have run for at least 150 yards. Alabama hadn't scored 50-plus in back-to-back SEC games since 1945.

"We have to limit their direct runs, and we have to try to make them bounce the ball to where they can't attack us straight downhill", Luke said.

Fortunately for Wallace, he and the rest of the Ole Miss players made it back to the locker room well before the chaos on the field got out of control.

If playing time is a concern, though, would Fields really want to go to Athens, where true freshman Jake Fromm is leading a top-five team?

Later in the first quarter, Hurts found tight end Hale Hentges for an easy 3-yard touchdown. LSU got shoved all over its own house Saturday night by a Sun Belt Conference team that outplayed the supposedly more talented Tigers in every phase of the game.

That thought has been tweaked a bit this season, because now league teams are facing the Crimson Tide simply hoping to stay competitive. Squandering the opportunity for seven, another three-and-out saw Luke Logan kick the ball through the uprights and put the first points on the board for Ole Miss.

Ole Miss has gotten the best of Alabama in recent seasons, but not this year.

After an early three-and-out, Alabama's offense got rolling with its second possession when Hurts broke free for a 29-yard scamper on third down. Josh Jacobs only had two carries, but he averaged 25.5 yards each. Luke said center Sean Rawlings (ankle) is a game-time decision, but receiver A.J. Brown (knee) is likely good to go.
