Defending national champion and top–ranked Alabama faces a huge early-season test on Saturday, traveling to face Ole Miss as both teams open SEC play.

The Crimson Tide enter off consecutive demolitions of USC and Western Kentucky. Quarterback Jalen Hurts and tailback Damien Harris have both been outstanding thus far, with receiver ArDarius Stewart emerging as Alabama’s top vertical option.

Ole Miss will lean on quarterback Chad Kelly, who has been responsible for much of the team’s offense, with Akeem Judd the main threat on the ground. The Rebels memorably upset Alabama 43–37 nearly one year ago.

Ole Miss has beaten Alabama two straight seasons.
