OXFORD - Mississippi quarterback Bo Wallace doesn't lack confidence these days.

It's easy to understand why. The 21st-ranked Rebels are 3-0 for the first time since 1989 and coming off a dominant road victory over Texas.

Now comes an even bigger challenge: Squaring off against No. 1 Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

But Wallace says the Rebels aren't about to back down, adding that he believes the offense will be able to score on the Tide.

The Rebels hope to prove they're a true contender in the Southeastern Conference Western Division, which is home to several powerhouse programs.

Coach Hugh Freeze hopes Ole Miss can "score enough points and stop them enough that we have a shot in the fourth quarter."
