The 12th ranked Ole Miss Rebels improved to 3-0 on the season after defeating the Tulane Green Wave, 61-21, on September 18th. Ole Miss dominated Tulane on the offensive side of the ball throughout the game in this one and had no trouble cruising to victory in the 2nd half after going into halftime with a 40-21 lead. Ole Miss outgained Tulane by a 707-305 margin and forced 1 turnover in the victory.

The top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide improved to 4-0 on the season after defeating the Southern Miss Golden Eagles, 63-14, this past Saturday.

Alabama outgained Southern Miss by a 606-213 margin and forced 1 turnover in the victory.

The Rebels are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 6-0-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Crimson Tide are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 home games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall.

Alabama is no question the best team in College Football, however, I think they are going to have their hands full with Ole Miss in this one. The Rebels have one of the most explosive offenses in College Football as they rank 1st in both scoring offense & total offense and they showed last year that they had no trouble figuring out the Alabama defense in a 63-48 loss. Ole Miss has showed improvement on the defensive end this season and although they are going to give up plenty of points, I think their offense does enough to keep this one within the number. Take Ole Miss and the points. Good Luck!
