5 Reasons Ole Miss Can Be the Texas A&M of 2013 and Beat Alabama

Can Ole Miss pull off a major upset on Saturday?

Last November, college football witnessed the meteoric rise of Johnny Manziel, who led his Texas A&M team to an upset of top-ranked Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

The Aggies got off to a fast start thanks to Manziel's dual-threat abilities, and a late turnover by AJ McCarron allowed Kevin Sumlin's team to exit with the most impressive victory of the season in tow. The Crimson Tide didn't lose another game.

Fast forward to the present where everyone is trying to discover a team that Alabama might lose to. There's the game against LSU in November, but that one is circled every year. It's not going to sneak up on anybody, and no one would be shocked to see the Tigers pull out a win.

But if you glance at the rest of the schedule, it's hard to find a team that might actually beat Alabama. The Tide don't have to play Florida, Georgia or South Carolina and Texas A&M is already in the rear-view mirror.

Ah, but this Saturday features just such a team in Ole Miss, who may be the Texas A&M of this season and upset Alabama on the road.

Here are five reasons why.
