Ole Miss (2-2, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) is preparing for a hard road game against No. 12 Auburn (4-1, 2-0) on Saturday while also digesting an embarrassing 66-3 loss to No. 1 Alabama last weekend.

"But you better be able to block 'em", he said. The college football odds for the game have the Crimson Tide favored listed as a four-touchdown favorite to pick up the win.

Wallace, who didn't begin the season as a starter but has found his niche as a shutdown corner opposite fellow senior Anthony Averett, helped limit an Ole Miss passing attack that had averaged 427 yards per game to just 165 yards on Saturday.

"They (Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa) did a good job, and I'm pleased with the opportunity they got because they were playing in the game, and I thought they executed fairly well", coach Nick Saban said.

PASSING PATTERSON: This Ole Miss team does something in common with the last one the won in Tuscaloosa: a talented quarterback. Ole Miss had been a consistent pest in the SEC West.

Texas A&M is roughly two hours from the Houston suburb of Channelview, which is the home of Alabama sophomore quarterback Jalen Hurts, who considered the Aggies and Mississippi State before signing with the Tide.

And then there's Watford, the 5-star forward who described Alabama's practice as "a new atmosphere for basketball".

Alabama's Pass Rush: It's no secret that Alabama lost some serious talent to the National Football League draft last season.

"They ran a few stealths and some things that they did not in the first three games,"offensive coordinator Phil Longo said". On top of that, the game is played in Bryant-Denny at night. He says he wasn't present when the crowd tore the goal posts down and paraded them across the field but remembers watching the moment on TV. It gave the Crimson Tide their first non-offensive touchdown of the season. The Tide also poses one of the deepest backfields in the country, which ranks fourth in the nation in rushing offense (315.6 yards per game).

The Tide also played host to an impressive crop of 2019 prospects in Austin Crowley, Kira Lewis and Trendon Watford, all four-stars or better on the recruiting sites. Alabama rushed for 496 yards in the win and notched 677 total yards of offense in the game.

The No. 1 quarterback recruit in the 2018 class was at Alabama this weekend.

INJURIES: Alabama got back linebackers Jennings and Rashaan Evans last week, helping boost the Tide's pass rush.

"We were very inefficient on third down", Longo said.

What happened: Damien Harris ripped through the middle for a 46-yard gain into Ole Miss territory.
