Alabama has two losses? There haven’t been many times that you could say that over the past decade or so. The Crimson Tide lost an all-time classic game to LSU last week in Death Valley, 32-31 and are now 7-2.

The No. 10 team in the country is looking to bounce back against Ole Miss, who is ranked No. 11 in the AP poll. This College Football Playoff committee will almost certainly disagree, but for now we have another great SEC matchup. 

Ole Miss is coming off a bye and Lane Kiffin’s team will want to hand Nick Saban an unheard of two-game losing streak.

Alabama vs. Ole Miss Prediction and Pick

Nick Saban’s teams do not take losses lightly. The trends tell us that Alabama is 5-0 in their last five games following a straight up loss.

Last time the Crimson Tide lost was only a few weeks ago to Tennessee, and the next week they smashed Mississippi State, 30-6. That is likely the expectation this week, but there have been plenty of times this year where Alabama has looked vulnerable in games and maybe Kiffin will smell blood in the water. 

Bryce Young was still excellent down the stretch last week and he is never the concern for Alabama. Young will be great this week and so will Jahmyr Gibbs out of the backfield. The Crimson Tide will be able to score on an Ole Miss defense that allowed 28 to the lifeless Texas A&M offense two weeks ago and is 69th in the country in total defense. 

The Ole Miss offense should be able to hang in this game on paper, but they rely heavily on the rushing game and Quinshon Judkins. This week, Judkins will have a tough time against the 11th ranked run defense in college football and Will Anderson Jr. Alabama will be out for revenge after last week’s loss and that is bad news for a potentially overrated Ole Miss team. 

Pick: Alabama -11.5 (-105)
