No. 1 Alabama still looking to fix its Ole Miss problem

No. 1 Alabama vs. Ole Miss: Game outlook, where to watch, listen

Ole Miss comes into the game at 2-1, defeating UT Martin and Southern Alabama.

Another game of nearly 200 yards passing and 100 yards rushing for Alabama sophomore quarterback Jalen Hurts, who finished with three total touchdowns.

Jalen Hurts threw for two touchdowns and rushed for another while adding 101 yards on the ground for Alabama, which has scored at least 59 points on an SEC opponent in back-to-back games. Auburn may not be Alabama, but the Tigers' defense is playing at an exceptionally high level. Hurts faked a handoff to Jacobs, who carried out the play fake, then acted as if he was a blocker before releasing to find himself all alone to catch the scoring pass. "This is a team that has beat us two out of the last three years, and we've played some shootout kind of games with them", Saban said at a press conference. The Tide also poses one of the deepest backfields in the country, which ranks fourth in the nation in rushing offense (315.6 yards per game).

Significance: The Rebels had moved into Alabama territory with the help of pass interference and a roughing-the-passer calls. Defensively, it was a frustrating outing for the Rebels, allowing 613 yards of total offense and 26 first downs, while being dominated in the time of possession battle, with Ole Miss holding the rock for just over 23 minutes in the losing effort. Freeze resigned as head coach in July following reports that he made a phone call to a number associated with a female escort service, while Werner was sacked as Ole Miss' co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in December and was later hired by Alabama as an offensive analyst in the spring.

Significance: Alabama, comfortably ahead by 32 points at intermission, served notice that it wasn't looking to rest on that lead. The Tide hasn't recorded a sack in its last eight quarters, albeit against two quarterbacks who were hell-bent on releasing the ball as quick as possible. I've said that before, but like Georgia, they made Nick Fitzgerald irrelevant in the game.

"Defensively, they're tough to run against". They were able to stay on the field and we weren't.

Alabama has only been tested once this season, and that was against a Florida State team that has looked anything but impressive since their loss to the Tide. A few times, we started pretty well early on, but we didn't sustain that in the game.

"We were very inefficient on third down", Longo said.

Even one-sided games are decided by key plays. Greg Little and Rod Taylor will play left and right tackle, respectively.
