OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Alabama's pass defense looks a little vulnerable these days. Mississippi's isn't much better.
Looking at the statistics, there could be a lot of touchdowns when the top-ranked Crimson Tide and No. 21 Rebels meet on Saturday in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Ole Miss is ranked eighth in the Southeastern Conference in pass defense while Alabama is 11th.
Alabama has been impacted by injuries and suspensions in the secondary. Coach Nick Saban used two new starting cornerbacks against Colorado State last Saturday.
Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze has often said cornerback is a very thin spot on his roster. The Rebels have moved a few players around to try and create more depth at the position.
