Will Ole Miss Challenge Alabama This Weekend in Tuscaloosa?

Barrett SalleeSEC Football Lead WriterJune 26, 2016

After a week off of SEC play last week vs. Florida Atlantic, the No. 1-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide will host Ole Miss this weekend in its first SEC home game of the season.

The primetime tilt will feature the SEC's best defense in Alabama (185 YPG) against the SEC's No. 3 offense in Ole Miss (488 YPG).

Something's gotta give.

Is this the week that Alabama's defense gets tested? Will Eddie Lacy or T.J. Yeldon rush for more yards for the Crimson Tide?

B/R contributor Marc Kohn and SEC lead writer Barrett Sallee answer these questions and more in this edition of The Program.
