Comments

This is probably the biggest game of the weekend. I bet Nick Saban is worried about this game. Ole Miss’ Lane Kiffin has had an extra week to prepare for the Tide. Saban is the best overall head coach in college football but Kiffin is the best with Xs and Os. I think this will be a really fun game to watch and will be close. Alabama should prevail playing at home. The Tide appears to have a little better defense and an offense about equal to the Rebel’s.
