The Alabama Crimson Tide (6-0) will head to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium to take on the Ole Miss Rebels (2-3) this weekend in a primetime SEC matchup.

Alabama is on a roll as of late, and will be hoping to cruise through their next two games against Ole Miss and Tennessee before the LSU Tigers come to town in November.

Where: Vaught-Hemingway Stadium (Oxford, Mississippi)

When: Saturday, October 15 at 6 p.m. EDT

Spread: Alabama (-26.5) according to Bodog Sportsbook

The Alabama defense has been lights out to this point in the season. They are giving up just seven points per game, while recording over 37 points per game on offense.

They beat the likes of Florida by 28 and Arkansas by 24, so they should have no problem knocking off Ole Miss by 27.

Key Injuries for Alabama

The Crimson Tide don't have any serious injury concerns as RB Eddie Lacy and LB C.J. Mosley are both set to return to the field this week.

Key Injuries for Ole Miss

RB Enrique Davis remains questionable for this week's game with a knee injury, as is S Brishen Mathews who has a back injury.

Keys to Victory for Alabama

The Crimson Tide need to stick to their usual game plan of running the football. There is no need for them to get pass happy. They just need to continue playing solid defense and running the ball.

If they can do that, they will have no problem winning this game.

Keys to Victory for Ole Miss

The Rebels are going to need to create a lot of turnovers if they are going to have any chance of winning this game.

They will need to stack eight men in the box, and will have to find a way to capitalize on turnovers when Alabama drops back to pass.

On offense, they need to limit turnovers and find a way to keep this game close. If they start turning the ball over, it's going to be game over.
