One of the key matchups in Alabama’s game against Ole Miss this weekend will be the Tide’s ability to contain Rebels star freshman wideout Laquon Treadwell.
The 6’3”, 215-pound Treadwell has been a huge part of Ole Miss’s 3-0 start, and his presence gives the Rebels offense a worthy complement to fellow receiver Donte Moncrief and tight end Evan Engram.
Nick Saban’s secondary struggled mightily against Texas A&M—specifically with star Aggies receiver Mike Evans, who torched Saban’s defense with 279 yards receiving in a 49-42 loss.
The opportunity to slow down Treadwell will give Alabama a chance to prove it has learned its lesson from the Texas A&M game. The question becomes how will the Tide accomplish that mission this weekend?
