Aaron Suttles Previews Alabama vs Ole Miss [Audio]
Alabama and Ole Miss will do battle on Saturday to get a leg up on the rest of the SEC West. The past two seasons have not gone Alabama's way in this match-up, Aaron Suttles thinks that the past won't really matter when it comes to the 2016 game.
On Wednesday, Suttles previewed the big match-up between the Tide and Rebels on his show The Suttles Approach, and he didn't sound concerned at all for Alabama in this season's version of the SEC West rivalry. Sure, the past two games against the Landsharks haven't gone Alabama's way, losing by a combined 12 points with seven turnovers committed by the Tide, but with Nick Saban and Jeremy Pruitt's elite defense this year, Ole Miss will find it difficult to move the ball at all.
Alabama's running game will have to increase in productivity if the Tide wants to end their two-game losing streak to the Rebels. Through two games in 2016, Alabama is tied for seventh in the SEC in rushing yards/game, and in order to win the SEC, there's usually a direct correlation between being able to run the ball effectively and winning the conference.
Listen to his entire preview below, and be sure to catch The Suttles Approach each weekday from 12-2 PM.
