"I had my little sports vehicle out last night, and I went to see my son and granddaughter and daughter-in-law", Saban said. There's little "thinking" needed. Ole Miss WR A.J. Brown (knee), the SEC's leader in yards receiving, is a game-time decision, according to coach Matt Luke. Throws will come early and often against a secondary that already has six interceptions. Still, the two losses to Ole Miss represent Alabama's only conference defeats over the past two-plus seasons. "I think the ultimate disrespect sometimes is when someone quietly thinks they've got your number". The big focus in the last game was to start fast and finish strong. This week, Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban compared the Rebels sophomore to 2012 Heisman-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel for his ability to evade pressure in the backfield and keep plays moving.

Vanderbilt and Florida have played tight games the last two years. His prized pupil is Marquis Haynes, the Rebels' senior defensive end who has two tackles for loss and a half-sack through the team's first three games.

Alabama DL Da'Shawn Hand was injured in the third quarter against Ole Miss. The Tide hasn't recorded a sack in its last eight quarters, albeit against two quarterbacks who were hell-bent on releasing the ball as quick as possible. Keeping him contained, and bringing him down, could end the Rebels lone semblance of offensive production.

INSTANT RECAP: No. 13 Auburn 49, No
Auburn accepted the ball to open the game and immediately raced 75 yards in seven plays - all of them runs. And maybe they would have swung some of that vaunted momentum away from Auburn and to Mississippi State .

Alabama has won 68 straight games against unranked teams.

While Wallace admits times are tough for the Rebels right now, he knows firsthand how sweet a win over Alabama can be. Auburn obviously plays Alabama in the Iron Bowl during Thanksgiving Weekend. The 63-point margin was the Tide's largest since beating Vandy 66-3 in 1979.

427.0: Though he's played in only three games through four weeks, Rebels quarterback Shea Patterson is second nationally in passing yards per game with 427. But it is clear that this will be the Tide's first test since that game. When he ultimately does decide to retire, it will be one of the biggest head coaching openings in college football history. I was watching Keith Holcombe and Shaun Dion (Hamilton) and helping those guys as well, and that helped me kind of stay in the game as far as mindset-wise.

The Crimson Tide haven't gone all Steadman Shealy/wishbone on us here, but their offense is still a good throwback to the Bear Bryant days, having posted 303 yards per game on the ground, including what seemed like a country mile vs. Vanderbilt. The Crimson Tide will have no issue moving the ball.
