The third week of college football presents several marquee matchups, which includes the SEC showdown between Alabama and Mississippi. After the Crimson Tide dismantled their first two opponents, the Rebels could provide a tough challenge.

Ole Miss currently holds one of the best offenses in football, averaging 61.5 points in their opening contests.

Nonetheless, ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum made it clear that he believes Alabama will continue their dominance.


"I think Alabama is going to win," Finebaum said. "The question is whether it's going to be more than 21 for anyone keeping score. I think this Alabama team is unstoppable."

"(Alabama has) the best offense I've seen in modern time, Joe," Finebaum said. "The best quarterback (Tua Tagovailoa) in maybe a couple generations."

Although Ole Miss has the firepower to score in bunches, Finebaum made an outstanding point about their defense. Through two games, the Rebels have allowed an average of 34.0 points. Considering that Nick Saban's offense is averaging 54.0 points per game, this could turn into another blowout.

Fortunately for Mississippi, they'll have the crowd on their side at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

Finebaum is rolling with the Tide, but who are you picking?

Alabama and Ole Miss are set to kick off at 7:00 p.m. ET. The game will be available on ESPN.
