Mississippi's young defense draws No. 1 Alabama

OXFORD, Miss. - Mississippi's defense is undersized, inexperienced and doesn't have much depth.

The No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide has a punishing, effective offense that has steamrolled every team it has faced this season.

The mismatch that presents is obvious. Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze says his team's job is to ignore it.

Freeze says the Rebels have to "play above and beyond what we've played before to be competitive in this game."

Ole Miss (3-1, 0-0 Southeastern Conference) is trying to snap a 14-game SEC losing streak when it travels to face Alabama (4-0, 1-0) on Saturday at Bryant-Denny Stadium. The Crimson Tide has won 25 of the past 27 meetings in the series, including eight straight.

The Rebels' defense is going to have play big to end the losing streak.
