Comments

It’s back to cupcakes for Alabama after an SEC clash last weekend. Southern Miss probably isn’t the worst team on the Tide’s schedule. The Golden Eagles have a pretty decent run defense and can score points. This should be another Bama blowout but USM will at least do better than New Mexico St.
