Alabama may look different, with a high powered offense leading the way, but nothing has really changed. This is a super talented team that looks like a playoff lock and eventual champion. At least they are more fun to watch though.
Ole Miss has one of the most exciting offenses and this will be an interesting game. They have given Bama trouble in the past and essentially this can make or break their season as they are not eligible for any postseason participation this year.
Alabama Crimson Tide
As long as Nick Saban is around we should never worry about Alabama. Their “quarterback battle” was an embarrassment of riches and all those defensive players they lost to the NFL seem to have been replaced pretty easily.
Tua Tagovailoa has shown that his magic in last year’s title game has not run out. The competition has been light so far but he has been efficient and is surrounded really good talent at the skill positions. This might be the most explosive offense that Saban has had.
Alabama killed Ole Miss last season but in the past they have struggled with the Rebels so I don’t think they are going to get caught looking ahead. This is the first game against real competition and first road game so they will have to be prepared…and they will be.
The outlook of Ole Miss this season is possibly crazy good offense but not much to play for so things might be tough. It was an FCS opponent last week but they scored 76 points, and gave up 41. it is going to be a wild season but this group will score on everybody.
Jordan Ta’amu showed a lot last year and looks great for far in 2018. Many rate the receivers for Ole Miss as the best the in the nation and junior running back Scottie Phillips has burst on the scene after transferring from Jones County JC. I am excited to see this offense against Bama.
Ole Miss can only play spoiler this season and this will be the greatest chance to do so, not only because Alabama is the biggest fish in the nation but also because they get this game at the Grove. The Rebels have covered the last two in the series at home including an upset a few years back. .

Alabama is capable of making any tam look silly but I am encouraged that Ole Miss will be able to score against the Tide. That is key and they have nothing to lose.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Ole Miss +21
I am not sure the Rebels will be able to stop Alabama at all but if they keep putting up point and take some chances this can play more in the ten point range.
Look for Ole Miss to have a great gamepland and catch Alabama off guard early. Not many teams try and punch them in the mouth. They might lead in the first quarter and then give ground.
