- Alabama and Ole Miss will meet in a potentially epic SEC clash on Saturday afternoon (3:30 p.m. ET, CBS).

- Here's how to watch Ole Miss-Bama:
How much fun is this?
It’s hard to have more pure viewing excitement about a regular-season college football game.
The path to how we got here began almost seven years ago, when Nick Saban hired Lane Kiffin to help bring Alabama’s offense into the 21st century. Since, the Crimson Tide have gotten even deadlier on offense, and Kiffin has blossomed into one of the best offensive minds in the nation.
Here’s how to watch Saturday’s SEC showdown.
Alabama-Ole Miss Start Time
- Date: Saturday, Oct. 2
- Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET
Alabama-Ole Miss got top billing on CBS over Georgia vs. Arkansas. ESPN had its 12-6-9 p.m. ET tripleheader set already. And it didn’t want to run into this game, and the 9 p.m. game has to start in a Central Time Zone location. So Hogs-Dawgs got bumped to noon.
Ole Miss could be back on CBS next week when it hosts Arkansas; that game time hasn’t been announced. Alabama will play Texas A&M at 8 p.m. ET.

Alabama-Ole Miss Odds
- Alabama: -14.5
- Ole Miss: +14.5
- Total: 79.5
This will likely close as the highest over/under in SEC history. And half decade ago, it would have seemed impossible for this conference to reach the offensive heights it has.
College football fans and analysts were quick to crown Alabama again after the Tide dismantled Miami in their opener. However, they needed a stop on a two-point conversion to outlast Florida as a 14-point favorite, and now find themselves in a tricky spot against one of the nation’s scariest offenses.
The Saban vs. his assistants narrative is well-documented, but don’t forgot Kiffin’s offense hung 48 points on the Tide last season (in a 63-48 loss, of course). Matt Corral threw for 365 yards and the Rebels ran for almost 300 more as the two teams combined for a conference record 1,379 yards.
Ole Miss News
With Alabama reloading a bit this season, can Ole Miss pull it off? The Rebels are fourth in the country in yards per play (7.69) and Corral is the Heisman Trophy favorite. Perhaps most importantly, the Ole Miss defense looks a little better than its bottom-20 unit last season.
Kiffin’s squad is 37th in yards per play allowed on defense, and while the schedule hasn’t been too tough, it featured Louisville and Tulane. No slouches based on their other performances so far.
