Ole Miss-Vanderbilt Game Set for 2:30 PM Kickoff

Ole Miss-Vanderbilt Game Set for 2:30 PM Kickoff”

Saban touted the undefeated Commodores two weeks ago before Alabama rolled to a 59-0 win in Nashville. Those three fairly benign - and factually correct - words were bolded, underlined and fed into the furnace of Nick Saban's locker room. Two plays later, Bo Scarbrough punched it in from 6-yards out for a touchdown to put the Tide up 7-0 with 10:04 left in the first quarter. Auburn leads the all-time series with Ole Miss, 30-11, and won last year's meeting in Oxford, Miss., 40-29.

"They bracketed [Brown] a little bit tonight, played some double coverage on him some", Luke said.

The game will be broadcast on SEC Network, the league announced Saturday night.

The Crimson Tide are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games against a team with a winning home record, 12-2 in their last 14 games on the road, and 8-1 in their last 9 conference games.

It was more than a defeat.

While the visit reportedly went well, SEC Country is reporting that Alabama doesn't think it's going to receive a commitment from the top prospect.

150: Jalen Hurts has thrown 150 consecutive passes without an interception - the fifth-longest streak by a Crimson Tide quarterback in program history.

And even then there was no letup.

Diggs had some nice punt returns against Ole Miss, but also fumbled his final return. Ole Miss has had some difficulty this season stopping the run, and its opponents have taken advantage of the middle of the Rebels' defense. When the starters were pulled, the dogs were not called off. Hurts left the field early in the third quarter with 298 total yards to move into eighth place with 4,942 career total yards of offense.

Maybe I'm just feeding some of the masses, but what true freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has done in "garbage" time can not be forgotten.

The Aggies are 4-1, having opened with a crushing 45-44 loss at UCLA after leading 44-10 late in the third quarter.

Ole Miss's offense, meanwhile, began its drives on average at its own 21-yard line. Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson: Though it did a fine job affecting Vanderbilt quarterback Kyle Shurmur, Alabama's pass rush has not produced at the level to which its fans are accustomed.

Alabama, for the most part, doesn't choke close to the goal line.

Ole Miss at Alabama news:That's quite the relative statement, obviously.
