The Alabama Crimson Tide will face the Mississippi Rebels on Saturday, October 12 at 3:30 p.m. ET. The game will air on CBS, and it’s the last visit by the network to Oxford before ESPN becomes the full-time airer of SEC football.
The Crimson Tide played themselves out of the national championship picture, falling 31-30 in overtime to the LSU Tigers last Saturday. It’s the second SEC loss of the year for Bama, who despite having some of the most talent ever assembled by a college football team could be off to a bowl game in Orlando or Tampa.
Mississippi comes off their bye with an 8-1 record, their only loss a 45-20 to that same LSU team. There’s still a path to an SEC title if LSU drops one more game this year, but Jaxson Dart and former Nick Saban assistant Lane Kiffin will be underdogs at home.
