Alabama 66, Ole Miss 3: No upset; Alabama dominates Ole Miss

Since that memorable day five years ago when Johnny Manziel led them to victory in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, the Texas A&M Aggies are 0-4 straight up and 1-3 against the spread versus the Alabama Crimson Tide.

"Anytime you lose a game around here, it sticks for a while", running back Damien Harris said. While Saban said the play was legal, he questioned the use of such blocks due to players' safety. Hurts has helped guide Alabama's offense to 508.6 yards and 46.2 yards per game, with each of those averages leading the league.

Alabama senior defensive lineman Da'Shawn Hand will miss Saturday's game after suffering an MCL strain against Ole Miss. Wilkins is the 17th 100-yard rusher Alabama has allowed dating back to 2005, and the first since Georgia's Nick Chubb had 146 yards in 2015. They've got really good running backs. It was the last chance Ole Miss had to try to get back into the game, and was one of five UA sacks.

On Ole Miss' ensuing possession, Alabama cornerback Levi Wallace intercepted Shea Patterson's pass and returned the ball 35 yards for the touchdown to make it 14-0.

Hurts completed 12 of 19 passes for 197 yards, averaging 10.2 yards a completion, and scored two touchdowns in the air.

LaMelo said he's not anxious about missing out on traditional high school life and not going to school with his friends. LaVar will take over LaMelo's training, telling Sondheimer he's "going to make him the best basketball player ever".

That includes the current crop of coaches, especially in the SEC West, that are about to face Alabama and Saban in the coming weeks. Ole Miss has been playing solid ball, despite their loss to California on September 16. Their O/U is 4-1 in their last 5 conference games and following a win, 6-2 in their last 8 games on the road, and 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record.

"Defensively, they're tough to run against". The sins of the coach are not the sins of the team, but with a scandal like that, you've got to believe it has taken a toll in the Rebels locker room.

Alabama's score on Saturday tied school history for the most points ever put on the board by Alabama. He says he wasn't present when the crowd tore the goal posts down and paraded them across the field but remembers watching the moment on TV. 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). Ole Miss has four receivers with 15 or more catches - "the best group of receivers collectively we've faced all year", according to Saban.

The total has gone under in three of Texas A&M's last four games in October.

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. Luke said center Sean Rawlings (ankle) is a game-time decision, but receiver A.J. Brown (knee) is likely good to go.
