Jake Coker plays the biggest game of his career on Saturday night. But the Alabama quarterback recently allowed his mind to wander from LSU to a September loss against Ole Miss.
“They wouldn’t want to play us again,” Coker told CBSSports.com‘s Dennis Dodd. “I think everybody here wishes that [a rematch] could happen.”
The Crimson Tide fell to the Rebels in a wild September shootout. It was the only game Coker has not started this season, and — infer what you will — the only game Alabama has lost.
“They’re a good team,” Coker said, “but we shouldn’t have played the way we played.”
Ole Miss still holds the West tiebreaker over No. 4 Alabama, which needs to beat No. 2 LSU in Tuscaloosa on Saturday night to have any chance at a division title.
