Challenges for Ole Miss

This should be one of the best games of the 2021 college football season. Both these teams have explosive offenses. Alabama appears to have a little better defense than Ole Miss but it’s nothing spectacular. To slow down Alabama’s offense you have to keep quarterback Bryce Young in check. So far this season Young has been spot on for the Tide. He’s completed 88 of 122 passes for 1,124 yards, 15 touchdowns and one interception. Ole Miss has to find a way to get good pressure on Young in order to force errant passes.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 2:30 PM CT (3:30 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the CBS Network.
