NCAA Football: New Mexico State at Alabama John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

We’ll keep this one simple. Alabama (4-0) is very good and can put up big numbers through the air. Tua Tagovailoa has thrown 17 touchdowns this season and ZERO interceptions. He has four NFL-caliber receivers at his disposal and a decent running back behind him in Najee Harris.

Ole Miss is coming off a tough home loss to No. 15-ranked Cal are honestly just trying to make the trip and remain healthy. Matt Corral is still questionable with bruised ribs and it appears that true freshmen John Rhys Plumlee and Grant Tisdale will get some reps against the No. 7 defense per ESPN’s Bill Connelly.

Look, this game is a L.

Just enjoy it, look for some glimpses of play-making ability for the future and drink Bon & Viv Spiked Seltzer.

Red Cup Panel Predictions

Bob Lynch — Alabama 48, Ole Miss 7

Ole Miss loses by at least five touchdowns. I don’t have to explain this.

One Man To Beat — Alabama 45, Ole Miss 14

The Rebels don’t score first but they show a little improvement from last season’s blowout due to a few defensive stops and better ball control.

whiskeywednesday — Alabama many points, Ole Miss very few probably zero points

At least one Ole Miss quarterback endures some psychological damage.

Matt Luke is not Mark Mangino.

Ben Woodhouse — Alabama 50, Ole Miss 7

No analysis needed tbh.

Gray Hardison — Alabama 47, Ole Miss 6

If Ole Miss gets out of this one without any significant injuries, we should all be pleased.

Zach Berry — Alabama 59, Ole Miss 14

It’ll be nice to hear Brad Nessler again, right?

Juco All-American — Alabama 55, Ole Miss 2

The Landsharks get a safety you rascals.

Michael Borkey — Alabama 56, Ole Miss 14

It’s Alabama.

Christoph Ludwig — Alabama 52, Ole Miss 17

The football team representing the University of Alabama is better than the football team that represents the University of Mississippi.

Nicholas Carr — Alabama 52, Ole Miss 6

After consecutive losses to Ole Miss, Nick Saban quit messing around and now runs the score up any chance he gets. Jerry Jeudy gets the yards and Tua Tagovailoa gets the (undeserved) hype.

Grayson Weir — Alabama 54, Ole Miss 16

A late touchdown against the practice squad makes it less demoralizing on paper
