Mississippi Rebels versus Alabama Crimson Tide
College Football Fantasy Picks 9-19-2015
Two SEC conference heavyweights meet as the Alabama Crimson Tide will host the Mississippi Rebels. College football draft GMs can tune to ESPN on Saturday September 19th at 9:15PM Eastern Time to track the results of their roster picks.
Alabama will be out for some revenge in this one as it was the Mississippi Rebels posting the 23-17 victory on their home field. The Rebels threw the ball effectively in the win for 251 yards. But that was behind a senior quarterback who has left the program. Ole Miss was down 17-10 entering the final period when they answered with 13 fourth quarter points and held the Crimson Tide offense scoreless.
Ole Miss has a record of 2-0 on the year. They have victories against Tennessee Martin and Fresno St as they scored over 70 points in each game. In the win against Fresno St the Rebels outgained the Bulldogs by 291 yards.
Alabama is 2-0 as well. They have a tough test in week one facing Wisconsin on a neutral field and came away with a 35-17 victory. Last week at home to Middle Tennessee St it was a 37-10 home win. In the win against the Badgers the Crimson Tide outgained the Badgers by 234 yards with 238 yards coming from their run game. Alabama stuffed the Wisconsin run game to just 40 yards for the game and an anemic 1.9 yards a carry.
