Mississippi Rebels @ Alabama Crimson Tide - Saturday October 16, 2010 – 9:00 PM ETAfter suffering their first defeat since the 2009 Sugar Bowl, the defending national champion Crimson Tide will have to rebound in a hurry with a visit from the Mississippi Rebels. Alabama had their run at number-one in the country ended suddenly in a loss to South Carolina State, one in which the Gamecocks were ranked 19th heading in to. After week five of the college football betting season, it seemed as though there was nothing that could stop Alabama. Now there are questions of how to get them going again.

Online Sports Betting
Odds: Alabama

The Crimson Tide will brace for a match up against Mississippi, which after consecutive wins over Fresno State and Kentucky are 3-2, including .500 in the SEC.

While it will be a downgrade from the ranked opponents that Alabama was forced to face three weeks in a row, it will still represent a huge challenge for getting back on track.

NCAA Football Betting Preview: Mississippi

The Rebels are seeded 13th in the country in rushing, led by running back Brendon Bolden and his 518 yards. Bolden has scored at least once in every game, and the running game has been complemented by the presence of quarterback Jeremiah Masoli in the backfield, who has aptly proven his ability to both throw and run. Masoli has 823 passing yards, and close to 300 rushing yards, helping Mississippi climb back above .500. This game will mark the beginning of the toughest stretch in the season schedule for the school, which gets number-eight Alabama, number-12 Arkansas, and number-seven Auburn in consecutive weeks.

NCAA Football Betting Preview: Alabama

It seemed as though the Crimson Tide would be able to overcome anything when they came from behind to take down number-10 Arkansas 24-20, and then followed that up with a huge Northbet blowout win over number-seven Florida. The last two teams to win the Red River Rivalry have gone on to win the national title, but it appears as though that trend will come to an end after the Gamecocks shocked Alabama last weekend with a 35-21 win. The Crimson Tide are fifth in points allowed this season, but that didn’t stop South Carolina State from reeling off 35 against them last week. The biggest part of head coach Nick Saban’s job will be to get his team back in the right mindset after a crushing loss.

The Match Up: Mississippi @ Alabama

Although the college football betting opportunity at a second consecutive national title isn’t completely gone just yet, the Crimson Tide will have a tough time getting back to the top. With seven teams ahead of them, Alabama will have a rough time getting back to number-one, and the toughest part will be the first week after a loss that proved that their not invincible.
