#21 Ole Miss gearing up for biggest game in years facing #1 Alabama

Posted: Updated:

Alabama has dominated the Ole Miss series in games played in Tuscaloosa posting 24 wins in 25 games.

The #1 ranked Crimson Tide won't be taking #21 Ole Miss for granted.  The Rebels have plenty of fire power and while quarterback Bo Wallace isn't Johnny Manziel, he can make things happen with his feet as well as his arm.

Wallace says Ole Miss won't back down against the Tide and he believes the Rebels offense will be able to crack the Alabama goal line.

Coach Hugh Freeze is making believers out of many people with his offensive philosophy and the ability to recruit top-notch talent from across the nation.

A win over Alabama beginning 5:30 Saturday would send shock waves across the nation and prove that Ole Miss is a contender in the SEC West Division.

Freeze said,"If we score enough points and stop them enough, we will have a shot in the fourth quarter."

Alabama head coach Nick Saban says most of his injured players should be back for the Ole Miss game.

Several starters didn't play in the win over Colorado State on Saturday and Saban said all but safety Nick Perry appear ready to participate on Saturday.

Wide receiver Amari Cooper and Deion Belue both sat out the Colorado State game and wide receiver Kevin Norwood, the former D'Iberville Warrior, also sat out with an unspecified injury.

The last time Ole Miss stated a season at 4-0 was back in 1970.

The Rebels enter the game with a five-game win streak dating back to last season, that's the longest since Ole Miss won 8 straight between 2008-2009.

Ole Miss has not faired that well against top-ranked teams.  Entering the game, the Rebels are 0-9 all-time when facing the nation's number one ranked team.
