Another Alabama Football road game is on tap for Saturday. For the 7-2, Crimson Tide and the 8-1, Ole Miss Rebels, the game is pivotal.

CBS has the game, with its broadcast team of Brad Nessler, Gary Danielson and Jenny Dell. The game will be streamed on multiple platforms, including fuboTV.

Radio coverage will be provided by the Crimson Tide Sports Network (CTSN) with Chris Stewart, John Parker Wilson and Roger Hoover. Along with the CTSN’s many radio stations, it can also be heard on Sirius/XM/SXM 138 or 191/962.

The 2:30 PM CST game is expected to kick off at 2:40 PM CST.

The two teams have played 69 times, with Alabama Football having won 57 of the games. The Alabama Crimson Tide’s record against Ole Miss in Oxford is 10-3.

The point spread on Friday night, according to FanDuel was the Crimson Tide as an 11.5-point favorite. The over/under was 64.5 points and the Moneyline was Alabama -450 and Ole Miss +340.

The Oxford weather at kickoff is expected to be partly cloudy and 43 degrees, with an 11 mph wind.

Final Alabama Football Game Prediction

No opposing coach understands Alabama’s strengths and weaknesses more than Lane Kiffin. And that includes Kirby Smart. Lane and his coaching staff will have a good plan, and even with some fourth-down quirkiness, the Ole Miss plan will be solid.

Ole Miss has much to play for, but so does the Crimson Tide. Alabama will play for team and individual pride and to maintain the Crimson Tide legacy.

The game will hinge on how well Ole Miss runs on the Alabama football defense, and how many points Bryce Young can produce through the air. The Tide will seek balance on the ground, but the Ole Miss defense’s weakest point is it’s secondary. The matchup should lead to Bryce Young producing like the pre-injury Young.

The Alabama defense should be able to slow the Rebels rushing attack enough to keep the game from being a shootout.

The Alabama Crimson Tide will have to play well to avoid an upset. The Ole Miss crowd, at one of the biggest home games in the school’s history, will be fever-pitched. I expect Alabama to play one of its best games of the season and win 34-27.

Alabama will not need any added motivation, but an earlier game loss, by LSU in Fayetteville, would provide a boost.
