Domination Nation. That's what Alabama football looked like last night, as the Crimson Tide controlled every part of their home game against Ole Miss.

"But you better be able to block 'em", he said.

"It was a play we had just put in for that game", Wallace said. Hurts has helped guide Alabama's offense to 508.6 yards and 46.2 yards per game, with each of those averages leading the league.

Woodbridge High School graduate Da'Shawn Hand tweeted out a positive update Sunday after suffering a knee injury Saturday against Ole Miss.

The SEC looks to already be settled after dominating performances by Georgia and Alabama.

"Texas A&M is the strongest team that we've played to this point looking at them from a holistic standpoint", Saban said, pointing to the Aggies' "explosive" offense, opportunistic defense and "dangerous" special teams.

PASSING PATTERSON: This Ole Miss team does something in common with the last one the won in Tuscaloosa: a talented quarterback.

Ole Miss may have wished that it was at least someone smaller whom they had to tackle, because if any defender was not blocked then six different Alabama running backs ran them over for more yards.


Shea Patterson completed 14 of 29 passes for 165 yards.

Passing offense - B: Hurts finished with 197 passing yards and two scores on 12-of-19 passing for a quarterback rating of 185.

While the visit reportedly went well, SEC Country is reporting that Alabama doesn't think it's going to receive a commitment from the top prospect.

The last time A&M was unranked after the first five weeks of the season was in 2012, when the Aggies did land a spot in the poll until they beat MS on October 6 in Oxford.

"They ran a few stealths and some things that they did not in the first three games,"offensive coordinator Phil Longo said". "It's certainly going to be a challenge for us and a test for us, and a division game on the road".

The game will be broadcast on SEC Network, the league announced Saturday night. As a matter of fact, the Aggies' run-defense is now only allowing 95.8 yards per game and everyone knows Alabama is a team that is big on running; now averaging 315.6 rushing yards per game this season. The Crimson Tide will have no issue moving the ball. Ole Miss had a week off after losing at Cal.

"We were very inefficient on third down", Longo said. If Ole Miss wants to defeat the Tide again, they better play lights out football.

Rankings: Alabama is first in The Associated Press poll and coaches' rankings.
