HOUSTON (CBS-Houston) – This is a huge weekend of college football. Good news is, nationally we will get to see the top teams against top non-conference foes. But, there’s no arguing the point about what’s going to take place in the State of Mississippi.
The No. 11 Ole Miss Rebels will host the currently No.3 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide in Oxford, Mississippi. Alabama Color Analyst, Executive Director of the Reese’s Senior Bowl and former NFL GM, Phil Savage, stops by to tell us why this could be the game of the year and arguably the biggest ever in Oxford.
Meanwhile, not too far away from Oxford is Starkville where the No.12 Mississippi State Bulldogs await the No.7 Texas A&M Aggies. One could make an argument that there’s never been a weekend quite like this in the State of Mississippi. Brandon Walker of the Colombus Dispatch tells us what to look for on both sides of the ball and makes a bold prediction.
Finally, we head north and get insight on Ohio State and the Big Ten from none other than one of the great young minds in college football, Ohio State Offensive Coordinator, Tom Herman. He gives us his thoughts on Ohio State, his young quarterback, J.T. Barrett. We also get an update on Braxton Miller.
