What you need to know about Alabama
Things were close when Alabama and the Florida Gators clashed last Saturday, but Alabama ultimately edged out the opposition 31-29. Alabama can attribute much of its success to RB Brian Robinson Jr., who punched in one rushing touchdown in addition to snatching one receiving TD, and QB Bryce Young, who passed for three TDs and 233 yards on 35 attempts.
The Crimson Tide are averaging 46 points per game this season, which ranks 11th in the country. Alabama also features one of the nation's stingiest defenses, giving up an average of 13.5 points per game this season. The Crimson Tide have won seven consecutive meetings against Southern Miss, but Alabama is just 2-8 against the spread in its last 10 games played in September.
What you need to know about Southern Miss
Meanwhile, Southern Miss came up short against the Troy Trojans last Saturday, falling 21-9. Southern Miss' offense struggled mightily in the loss as quarterback Ty Keyes threw for just 152 yards and two interceptions.
Despite suffering a setback in their last outing, the Golden Eagles may be catching Alabama at the right time. The Crimson Tide are coming off a hard-fought battle on the road against Florida and have a SEC showdown against the high-flying Ole Miss Rebels next week. If Alabama is looking ahead to next week's matchup, Southern Miss could easily stay within this large spread.
