No. 1 Alabama still looking to fix its Ole Miss problem

No. 1 Alabama still looking to fix its Ole Miss problem

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.

"It was a play we had just put in for that game", Wallace said. The college football odds for the game have the Crimson Tide favored listed as a four-touchdown favorite to pick up the win. Alabama will use three running backs (Damien Harris, Najee Harris, and Bo Scarbrough), so Gates and Bing-Dukes (or whoever is playing alongside Gates in the middle) will need to stay alert and look for the run. Coach Nick Saban said after the game he thought Hand had suffered an MCL sprain and would be further evaluated Sunday.

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

The Aggies have 20 sacks in five games, but Sumlin said mobile quarterback Jalen Hurts requires a different approach than just defenders pinning their ears back and going after the quarterback.

Shea Patterson completed 14 of 29 passes for 165 yards.

Hurts then led Alabama on two more scoring drives before halftime, connecting with running back Josh Jacobs on an 18-yard touchdown pass 2:07 into the second quarter and then adding a 10-yard touchdown run himself to go ahead 35-3 with 3:42 remaining before the break. Alabama has outscored its last four SEC opponents 209-31 dating back to last season.

The Aggies will play as big home dogs when they collide with the Tide on Saturday evening in College Station. The Rebel defense, with the help from a false start penalty, did force a field goal, but went down 38-3. The buzz around Ole Miss football is gone as the school awaits its punishment for NCAA violations committed under Freeze.

Sophomore receiver Trevon Diggs is questionable for Saturday's game with a foot injury.

Yet backup quarterback Jordan Ta'amu has appeared for only one play in one game.

Skipping no beat, the second-string Alabama offensive unit scored three more touchdowns and took a 59-3 lead that carried in to the fourth quarter.

With kickoff set for 6:15 p.m., Saban also knows the type of environment his team will be going into when they walk down the Kyle Field tunnel near sunset. That loss, coming off of two straight seasons without a national championship for the Tide had at least a few folks wondering whether the dynasty was dead. "They played well in that game to get in the position they were in".

"What we are right now is 2-2, we're no better and no worse", Luke said.
