Its the battle of the unbeaten as Ole Miss takes on Alabama in Bryant-Denny Stadium tomorrow. So what are Bama fans in Tuscaloosa saying about the matchup?

Undefeated Ole Miss is lookking to upset #1 Alabama. The 3-0 Rebels have been playing pretty good football, defeating Vanderbilt and SE Missouri State before taking down Texas. But Alabama fans say they're not feeling discouraged.

"Alabama will win 47-22," says fan Allan Glenn.

"I believe the University of Alabama is going to win tomorrow because we always beat Ole Miss," says Zach Boyd.

He may have a point. Alabama is 46-9-2 all time against Ole Miss.

The Rebels are coming off a bye week which some say could give them a slight advantage. Though others tell us they're not concerned.

"I think that's luck of the draw for them," says Boyd.

"We have the best team in the country, no doubt," says student Justin Pendleton. "Ole Miss has a nice squad but when you come to Bryant-Denny, there's nothing you can do."

The tide defeated Colorado State 31-6 just last week, but some fans tell us they'd like to see Alabama play harder against Ole Miss.

"I think our offense needs a lot of help but i think Ole Miss defense may hold us back from a few points," says fan Krista James.

"I think we're going to run the ball and that'll open up the pass for us and it'll also keep Ole Miss off the field," says Glenn.

And Bama fans say there's one more factor that always gives them the edge.

"It's a Nick Saban driven team," says Pendleton.

"We do have Nick Saban though," says James.

There you have it. It's almost impossible to find an Alabama fan who doesn't think the Tide will roll tomorrow.
