How Ole Miss looks headed into Alabama

Ole Miss has a big road test at Alabama tonight (8pm, ESPNU).

The Crimson Tide narrowly lost to No. 1 Tennessee 71-68 on Saturday. The Tide is in ESPN’s “First Four Out” in the NCAA Bracket predictions and ranked 50th in the NCAA’s NET ranking. It also opened SEC play with a win over Kentucky, so Alabama is a team that deserves respect despite losing three of its last four SEC games.

OLE MISS: 14-3 (4-1 SEC)
ALABAMA: 11-6 (2-3 SEC)
