I wanted to hear this from an unbiased handicapper before I posted, because I thought maybe my heart was telling me to do this, but it's not.
Greg Roberts (sports handicapper) said on George Lapides' talk show this morning that the Alabama - Ole Miss game has 40-6 written all over it. Said the Rebels will not run the football on Alabama, which means Brent Schaeffer would have to beat Bama throwing the football. Not gonna happen -- look for about 3 interceptions. I thought Bama might run away with this game, especially at home, getting ready for Tennessee next week, but I wanted to hear it from somebody else first. Soooo...here we go.
Ole Miss at Alabama (-15.5) --- The last three times Ole Miss has played at Alabama: 28-7, 42-7, 45-7. Ole Miss hasn't won in Tuscaloosa since '88 when Bill Curry was at the Capstone. Look for Alabama to get a little revenge for Ole Miss keeping them from scoring a touchdown in the redzone last year. Coach O's been talking a little smack this week, which should be good bulletin board material. FINAL RESULT: Alabama 26 Ole Miss 23 OT (Gary loses)
FINAL RESULTS FROM LAST NIGHT Clemson 63 Temple 9 (Gary lost) Boston College 22, Virginia Tech 3 (Gary lost)
