Comments

Alabama is coming off a shocking overtime loss to LSU. Sitting with two losses now the Tide player’s hopes of a national title has been pretty much vanquished. It will be interesting to see what the mindset of the Bama players is on Saturday. Are they going to come out bright-eyed and bushy-tailed or are they going to be deflated? I think it will probably be a little of both. Alabama should be able to pull this one out. They are still the most talented team in the SEC but this Ole Miss team is dangerous.
