Resigned mid-season. Overall record: —
Although the Crimson Tide is a big favorite over the Rebels, the history between these two SEC foes is pretty notable, with the Rebels famously knocking off the Tide back in However, the Matt Luke era in Oxford has cooled down the divisional matchup a tad as Nick Saban and the Tide have thoroughly dominated the games over the last two seasons.
The Tide are led by star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and a stellar wide receiving corps that has been nearly impossible to cover over the last two seasons.
The Rebels are hoping to find a groove under first-year offensive coordinator Rich Rodriguez and first-year defensive coordinator Mike McIntyre. Could Ole Miss pull the biggest stunner of the season, or will Alabama's recent dominance continue?

Let's break down the matchup and make picks straight up and against the spread. Ole Miss is currently ranked th in the nation in pass defense, so it would take an other-worldly performance for that to change. If there is a problem with the Tide, it's a rushing offense that is averaging just 3.
Najee Harris toted the rock 14 times last week and posted his second career yard game, but those 14 carries are the most that he's had in a single game during his two-plus year career.
He will get the start for the Rebels. The defense, though, has been atrocious. In addition to the awful pass defense mentioned above, the Rebels have given up 5.
Viewing information Date: Saturday, Sept. Because the rushing attack really hasn't provided the balance that he said the team needed this summer.
You'll still see plenty of Tagovailoa through the air, but expect Harris and the rest of the running backs to get a heavy workload deep into the third quarter, have success and lead the Crimson Tide to a big win and cover.
