Five Rebels for Alabama to focus on in week three SEC matchup

Normally, CBS grabs the first Southeastern Conference matchup that features Alabama football but ESPN beat it to the punch this weekend and has the Tide versus Mississippi in primetime. 

Both schools have explosive offenses; however, it will come down to which defense can create turnovers and generate momentum. Alabama head coach Nick Saban mentioned on Wednesday that Ole Miss had made improvements on defense from what he had observed on film.
