End the Streak

I am hoping that a streak will end this weekend in Oxford. No...I don't want the Rebels to finally beat the Tide after losing 5 straight. I think it's time to beat Ole Miss and beat them soundly. We have only outscored the Rebels by a combined total of 13 points over the past 4 years in those games. Alabama looks to be about as solid of team as any in the nation, but we looked like that last year and only won by 4 Bryant-Denny.

Right now I am counting on Ole Miss playing as well as they can. The difference will be whether or not the Tide plays up to their ability. If we can put together a great game plan and execute it, I think we win by a minimum of 17 points. Yes...17 points. As of right now...our average margin of victory is 25+ points...and in the SEC that number is 23 points.

If we can get pressure on Snead (as everyone has already said) and run the ball effectively (again nothing new here) I think we win this in a rout. We'll see though. Houston Nutt has a knack for getting his teams up for a few games each year...and you have to believe our game is one of them.

Yowski's pick...
Alabama: 34
Ole Miss: 14

Honestly, I worried about our offensive line. We are anchored by two 5th year seniors who play more like sophomores. Ole Miss has a pretty strong, and deep, defensive line so our running game could be in question. There are several 'keys' to this game but the biggest one, in my opinion, is going to be the play of the O-Line. If they can give G Mac some time to throw the ball and some blocking for Ingram/Upchurch/Richardson/Grant we should run away with it.

Here's to hoping for a big weekend for the Tide in Oxford.
Ole Miss- 14
