Ole Miss dropped 149 points in its first two games of the 2015 season, but the offense’s biggest test of the year comes against Alabama on Saturday.
According to Rebels coach Hugh Freeze, it might be one of the hardest tests for a college football offense in recent memory. In his Monday press conference, Freeze called the Crimson Tide defensive line as “deep and as talented as I’ve ever seen”.
Although the freakish athletes Alabama has on its defense could present a problem, Ole Miss will at least be familiar with the Crimson Tide’s defensive scheme. Freeze said on Monday that Alabama’s defense has not changed since he entered the SEC three years ago.
Ole Miss was able to upset Alabama, 23-17, last season, but the game was in Oxford. Freeze is 0-2 in Tusculoosa while at the helm of the Rebels. This week in practice, the Rebels will prepare for the crowd noise they will hear at Alabama in multiple ways.
Freeze, on Alabama DL: "As deep and as talented as I've ever seen. They've had some good ones. This is as talented as I've seen."
