Bo Bounds Previews Alabama vs Ole Miss [Audio]
The match-up with Ole Miss has been a thorn in Alabama's side for the past two seasons. Bo Bounds, host of Out of Bounds on 105.9 ESPN in Mississippi, joined Ryan Fowler on Tuesday to breakdown the upcoming match-up between the Tide and Rebels.
One of the players to keep an eye on in this game is obviously Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly. Kelly had an incredibly productive game against the Crimson Tide last season, throwing for 341 yards and 3 TD's with no turnovers. Despite his great game, the Rebels still needed some fortune to defeat Alabama, so will his presence be the most important aspect of the game for Ole Miss?
"No doubt, no doubt. Unless Alabama decides to pull something weird again [five turnovers in last year's game]... Chad Kelly, he's going to have to be fantastic on Saturday."
In Las Vegas, this game opened up with Alabama as an eight point favorite with an over/under at 54, so how does Bounds see this game going?
"I just don't know if they're going to light up the scoreboard... That doesn't mean that I don't think there will be any big plays and that Ole Miss can go down the field with some explosive plays, and that the Ole Miss secondary will lose containment for Bama to do some big stuff, but I see 24-21 or 21-17. I just think it could be very difficult, unless Bama just comes out and rolls."
