Next Saturday is one of the biggest games in recent memory for Ole Miss football. The Rebels host Alabama, which was ranked the No. 1 team in America for the first time this season earlier today. It's also the host for next week's episode of College GameDay. Basically, all eyes will be on Oxford, as the Rebels have a chance to establish themselves as one of the best teams in the SEC against the best team in college football.
Fortunately for Ole Miss, the team doesn't think Alabama is that good this season. According to Rebels' DB Cody Prewitt, the squad thinks that the Crimson Tide aren't as good as they've been in years past. Prewitt also said that the No. 11 Rebels think that they haven't totally played up to their potential so far this season, despite being 4-0 with the third best scoring defense in America.
"We understand that we haven't played a team that's going to be as good as Bama," defensive back Cody Prewitt said. "But we don't really think Bama is as good as they have been. And we're better than we have been. We're looking forward to getting to the game plan and really nailing down all the tweaks and stuff that we're going to have to put into Bama."
Giving Alabama head coach Nick Saban bulletin board material is never smart, but Prewitt's confidence heading into the matchup is commendable. We'll see if the Rebels can get their first win against the Crimson Tide since 2003 on Saturday. The game is scheduled to kick off at 3:30 P.M., and it will air on CBS.
