Biggest game of the week in SEC and maybe College Football as the Ole Miss Rebels head to Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscolusa, AL to face the #1 Alabama Crimson Tide. One sided head to head series as Alabama has won 9 straight against Ole Miss Rebels.
A hot rumor started circulating this week regarding the future of Head Coach Nick Saban with the Alabama Crimson Tide. Apparently his management had a dialog with the Texas Longhorns earlier this year about taking over the Head Coaching position with their team. Can you blame them? It seems like every year the Saban rumors are swirling, whether it is back to the NFL or on to another college football challenge.
In Week 4 Alabama rolled over Colorado State, 31-6, another very convincing win for the #1 ranked team. Offense of Alabama is well balanced as Senior QB AJ McCarron has proven he is much more than just the game manager he has been labeled in years past. Balance is name of game for Bama offense as the power run game is nearly unstoppable and that sets up deep pass game with the best WR's in College Football.
The Rebels are now ranked #21 in the AP poll. The team handed Texas one of the aforementioned losses on the road in Week 3, 44-23. Head Coach Hugh Freeze, in his second year, has to feel pretty good about his teams 3-0 start. Most of the attention has been surrounding QB Bo Wallace and his hot start but its the improved Rebels defense that gives Ole Miss a chance this week.
