Alabama vs. Ole Miss: 3 Keys to Shutting Down Laquon Treadwell

One of the key matchups for Nick Saban against Ole Miss will be his defense's ability to contain Ole Miss star freshman WR Laquon Treadwell.

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?
