What immediately popped into your head in December when you heard Ole Miss had hired Lane Kiffin away from FAU? My first thought was the excitement that we are going to get a Kiffin vs. Nick Saban matchup in the SEC West every year. The first of what we hope will be many meetings between the student and the teacher will take place Saturday as the Rebels welcome No. 2 Alabama into Oxford, Mississippi.
It's the same old, same old for the Crimson Tide, who throttled Texas A&M last weekend in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Quarterback Mac Jones looked like a difference-maker against the Aggies for the full 60 minutes in a sizzling 435-yard, four-touchdown performance.
The Rebels won a nail-biter over Kentucky in overtime where Wildcats kicker Matt Ruffolo missed an extra point in the top half of overtime. Running back Jerrion Ealy and quarterback Matt Corral have proven through two games that they have taken to Kiffin's offense and will be dangerous every time out.
What will happen on Saturday night in Oxford? Let's break it down and make picks straight up and against the spread.
It seems like the consensus around the country is that Saban will try to run it up on his former offensive coordinator because, let's be honest, their relationship didn't end on a high note. I don't see that happening, though. In fact, I see the opposite. Don't get me wrong ... this is a dial-a-score game for the Crimson Tide. But there are three reasons why Ole Miss will cover: the coach, the players and the weather. Saban knows that Kiffin is a brilliant offensive mind and that he has explosive players to work with. He also knows that Hurricane Delta will present some major problems and make this a sloppy game. Translation: He's going to want to get out of there as quickly and safely as possible. Pick: Ole Miss (+23)
The Alabama Crimson Tide are 4-1 against the Ole Miss Rebels since September of 2015, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Saturday. Bama and Ole Miss will face off in an SEC battle at 7:30 p.m. ET at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium at Hollingsworth Field. Both teams might be coming in a bit winded after having run the length of the field multiple times in their most recent games.
You're bound to get a positive result if you outscore your opponent every quarter, and that's exactly how it played out for the Crimson Tide last week. Everything went their way against the Texas A&M Aggies as they made off with a 52-24 win. With Bama ahead 35-14 at the half, the matchup was all but over already. Bama QB Mac Jones was slinging it as he passed for four TDs and 435 yards on 27 attempts. Near the top of the highlight reel was Jones' 87-yard TD bomb to WR Jaylen Waddle in the third quarter.
Meanwhile, it may have taken overtime to finish the job, but Ole Miss ultimately got the result they were hoping for last week with a 42-41 victory over the Kentucky Wildcats. QB Matt Corral had a stellar game for Ole Miss as he passed for four TDs and 320 yards on 29 attempts in addition to picking up 51 yards on the ground.
The Crimson Tide are the favorite in this one, with an expected 23-point margin of victory. Those taking them against the spread are banking on an outcome similar to that of the team's game last week, where they covered an 18-point spread.
Their wins bumped Bama to 2-0 and the Rebels to 1-1. Expect the scorekeeper to be kept busy: if their previous games are any indication, Bama and Ole Miss will really light up the scoreboard.
