STEPHEN M. SMITH / SENIOR REPORTER

Alabama  40 –  Southern Miss 6

Key Insight: ”Alabama has to continue establishing the RPO scheme with Tua Tagovailoa and receivers, but also shore up the offensive line with a ground game. The defense needs to not have penalties, make strong tackles and continue to grow in understanding assignment football ”

Other Big Game Predictions: 

Georgia over Notre Dame

Season Record: 5-2

JUSTIN SMITH / SCOUTING/RECRUITING ANALYST 

Alabama  51  – Southern Miss 10

Key Insight:  “This game is another one, where the Tide’s freshmen will get a chance to earn some pivotal game experience, especially on the defensive side of the ball with two new players, who have stepped up in Justin Eboigbe and  Jordan Battle. Although the Tide had great success with the RPO against South Carolina on offense, they still will want to establish some resemblance of a run game. Look out for Alabama running more run plays.” 

Other Big Game Predictions:

Georgia over Notre Dame

Season Record: 6-1

PATRICK DOWD / BREAKING NEWS REPORTER

Alabama 56– Southern Miss14

Key Insight: “Alabama needs to continue to gain experience on the defensive side of the ball now that another freshman in Justin Eboigbe will start. Don’t be surprised if Southern Miss quarterback Jack Abraham finds marginal success during some points of the game but the talent disparity will raise its head quickly. Expect Tua Tagovailoa and the offense to continue to do its thing and rack up a ton of yards and points throughout the entire matchup. ”

Other Big Game Winners:

Georgia over Notre Dame

Season Record: 7-0
