Will the blue hats ever show up in Alabama?

The lone win for Ole Miss over the Crimson Tide in the state of Alabama came in Tuscaloosa in 1988 to break an 0-23-1 streak. Since then the Rebels have lost 10 consecutive games to the Tide in Alabama for the mark to fall to a horrendous 1-33-1. The tie came in Birmingham in 1933.

Alabama hasn’t lost to Ole Miss since Manning and former head coach David Cutcliffe were in control in Oxford almost a decade ago.

Ole Miss hasn’t defeated Alabama at all since Eli Manning was under center in 2003, putting Alabama’s current winning streak over the Rebels at 8 games. Its longest streak in the series is 12.

As new Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze tries to change the culture around his football program, he can forget about winning in Alabama tomorrow night against the top-ranked team in the country.
