The top team in the country is ready for its next test, as Alabama and Mississippi will give an early taste of SEC football to fans everywhere.

Even though Nick Saban's squad is heavily favored for this matchup, Ole Miss can put up points in a hurry. In just their first two games, the Rebels have totaled 123 points, but they'll have their hands full tomorrow.

As for Alabama, they've won their first two contests by an average of margin of 43.5 points.

With both Tua Tagovailoa and Jordan Ta'amu playing at an elite level, Saturday could provide an interesting showdown of elite offensive talent.

However, it shouldn't surprise anyone that the Crimson Tide is heavily favored once again. ESPN's FPI gives the reigning champions an 83-percent chance of winning.
