Practice report: UA shakes up nickel defense in preparation for Mississippi

Derrick E. Hingle - USA TODAY Sports

Probably the biggest storyline to be featured this weekend in Alabama’s meeting with Mississippi is between quarterbacks Tua Tagovailoa and Jordan Ta’amu. 

Both guys were highly-recruited and are very accurate in spreading passes around to multiple receivers. Defensively, the Tide and the Rebels have a lot to prove as conference play represents which schools will rise from the pack.

Head coach Nick Saban is aware of Ole Miss’ explosiveness on offense and hopes that Alabama’s defense can shut it down.
