Fans of Ole Miss will be hoping the team’s season truly began after their Week 3 victory over Troy, 47-42. Their previous outing against Mississippi State had resulted in a defeat and a humbling display of the team’s vulnerabilities.
Regardless, there’s undeniable talent here. Wide receiver Quez Watkins is shaping to be the team’s breakout star. Matt Corrall, the team’s 20-year-old QB, is expected to start, with Alabama having averaged 179 yards on the ground largely due to his involvement. And, keep an eye on Elijah Moore, who boasts three touchdowns and 18 interceptions for 278 yards since the start of the season.

Alabama have won their first four games, twice at home and twice away. They start the game as favorites, but the question will really be whether the Tide will have trouble retaining their current form. Nick Saban is the mastermind of a team with great potential, but not necessarily terrific consistency.
When on form, Alabama can win big. They have defeated teams by 38 points on average this season. QB Tua Tagovailoa looks to be in great shape, having one of the best pass completion percentages in the competition. Overall, their recent form and the notorious fan support should make Alabama strong contenders to win here.
