Alabama's schedule is split down the middle over the next two months. The Crimson Tide will play three home games and three road games the rest of the way.

The first of those road trips will come this Saturday, when the Tide travels to Oxford for a showdown with Ole Miss. The Rebels are coming off a bye week, giving the team more time to prepare for the Tide.

And, Ole miss won it's last game, beating Fresno State on the road, so the Tide knows they'll be facing a prepared and confident Rebels squad this weekend.

"They certainly played their best game of the year in their last game of the year against Fresno State," Head Coach Nick Saban said. "They have a lot of talented players. They have a lot of returning starters on offense. They're actually playing better on defense from the standpoint of not giving up as many points."

Ole Miss will host Alabama at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday night on ESPN2.
