OXFORD, MS (WMC) -

It started 2 years ago down in Oxford. Ole Miss beat the mighty Alabama to shock the SEC and rock the college football world.

Last year, the Rebels made it two in a row, knocking off the Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa by double digits to put an exclamation point on their claim as a rising SEC West power.

But, can Ole Miss make it 3 in a Row over what is now the nation's number one team?

Ole Miss Head Coach Hugh Freeze shared this at his Pre-Game News Conference.

"I think it started our first year here when we went there and played a very physical game against them," Freeze said. "I thought we matched blow for blow, not on the scoreboard, but blow for blow with physical play. I think it is a combination of the confidence that has been set through playing them the four years we have been here and playing them early is advantageous."

Kickoff for the Rebels and Tide is 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford.
