Alabama and Ole Miss are scheduled for a 2:30 p.m. CT kickoff on CBS for their Saturday, Oct. 2 matchup at Bryant-Denny Stadium, the Southeastern Conference office announced on Monday afternoon.
The matchup in Tuscaloosa will be the 69th meeting all-time in the series, dating back to 1894. Alabama owns the series advantage, 56-10-2, including a 37-2-1 record at home. The two teams last met in Oxford, Miss. on Oct. 10, 2020, as the Crimson Tide came away with a 63-48 win to claim its fifth straight against the Rebels.
Alabama is coming off a narrow 31-29 victory over Florida in it’s first SEC game. Ole Miss had an opposite experience in its matchup last Saturday against Tulane as it trounced the Green Wave 61-21 behind quarterback Matt Corral’s seven total touchdowns.
Before the Crimson Tide host the Rebels, Nick Saban’s team will welcome Southern Miss to Bryant-Denny Stadium with kickoff coming on Saturday, Sept. 25 at 6:30 p.m. CT and will be broadcast on the SEC Network.
