A few examples...
RT Austin Shepherd: "They're going to come at you with everything you want because they have the speed and talent to do so. They're a really good defense, awesome D-line, really fast D-line, a bunch of utility players, some great linebackers, just they can bring anything at you."
QB AJ McCarron: "I mean, they’ve got ball players all the way around. They’re really good. Really good team. So it’s going to be a challenge for us, it really is. We’re going to have to step up, meet that challenge and get ready to play."
LB C.J. Mosley: "They were an up-and-coming team last year. They took that momentum (from last year) and progressed this year. Now they're a better overall team. We just have to make sure we're ready in all phases of the game to have a good, physical SEC game."
Let's see how the up-and-coming Rebels stack up with Alabama in all phases of the game.
WHEN ALABAMA RUNS
Alabama is currently ranked last in the SEC in rushing offense with its average of 132 yards per game. The Rebels are third in the conference and 29th in the nation in rush defense, allowing an average of 114.3 yards per game. Easy decision, right? Not quite. The Crimson Tide's rushing attack has the potential to be very good, and it showed it can be just that when it bulldozed its way to 234 yards at Texas A&M. T.J. Yeldon is still one of the most talented running backs in the country and the Crimson Tide's depth at running back has been good enough to keep two very talented freshmen off the field for the majority of the season. Anthony Steen will be back at right guard and the Alabama offensive line will be looking to bounce back from the embarrassing final tally (61 yards) it accumulated against Colorado State. The Rebels are tough on the defensive line, particularly ends C.J. Johnson and Robert Nkemdiche. Carlton Martin and Woodrow Hamilton provide strength in the middle. The return of Denzel Nkemdiche is significant to Ole Miss' linebacking corps, but only if he's recovered enough from his knee injury to be effective.
WHEN ALABAMA THROWS
McCarron already has two interceptions this season, but he was still very efficient in Saturday's game against Colorado State. He threw just six incompletions and was accurate on a number of his deep passes to Christion Jones and DeAndrew White. His chemistry with Jones appears to be blossoming and he's finding more opportunities to put the ball in freshman tight end O.J. Howard's hands. The return of a healthy Amari Cooper will make this facet of Alabama's offense even better, but nothing will affect it more than a productive running game. Ole Miss has already allowed 300 yards to Vanderbilt quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels and struggled at times against Texas' Case McCoy. The player to watch is freshman safety Tony Conner. Alabama almost landed Conner but came up just short to the in-state Rebels. He's emerged as one of the Rebels' top playmakers in just three collegiate performances.
WHEN OLE MISS RUNS
Jeff Scott will be the most elusive running back Alabama has seen so far this season. He barely played in Ole Miss' rout against Southeast Missouri State, but he was absolutely electric in the Rebels' big wins at Vanderbilt and Ole Miss. Bo Wallace and Barry Brunetti are also threats to run and each quarterback can effectively execute the zone read. Alabama absolutely bottled up the Rebels' rushing attack last year, limiting Ole Miss to just 80 yards on 35 attempts. Ole Miss has a better offensive line this year, as freshman Laremy Tunsil has already entrenched himself at left tackle. But the Crimson Tide has typically been good at stopping this kind of rushing attack. Mobile quarterbacks such as Johnny Manziel have been the ones that have caused the Crimson Tide problems. Quarterbacks such as Wallace typically have a tougher time against an Alabama defense that allowed just 51 yards on 26 attempts last week against Colorado State.
WHEN OLE MISS THROWS
Wallace was his own worst enemy in last year's matchup. He led a couple of successful drives against the Crimson Tide defense, but his performance was short-circuited before halftime because of two interceptions. He finished the 2012 season with 17 interceptions, so his performance against Alabama wasn't an aberration. This year, though, Wallace has yet to throw a pick and the options he has in the passing game are far more dangerous. Along with established wide receiver Donte Moncrief, Wallace has freshmen Laquon Treadwell and Evan Engram at his disposal. He simply doesn't have to force throws the way he did last year. On the flip side, Alabama's secondary returns Deion Belue, but likely will feature a freshman at the opposite cornerback spot. Belue was Alabama's best defender against Texas A&M's Mike Evans, but he's only capable of covering one guy at a time. The Crimson Tide will need a standout performance from a freshman and a bunch of help from veteran safeties HaHa Clinton-Dix and Vinnie Sunseri to bottle up the Rebels' air attack.
