Freeze hopes to pick up something from Alabama-LSU video

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze and his staff will break down the Alabama-LSU video because it’s what coaches do.

It’s unlikely they will learn very much they don’t already know about LSU.

However, they will look at this video with a little more interest since Alabama held Leonard Fournette to 31 yards on 19 carries.

No one else this season had held Fournette below 150 yards.

I give Ole Miss a good chance to have a competitive game against Fournette, not to dominate but to keep him from some sort of Heisman-winning performance.

The problem that will arise is the fact that Les Miles is looking at video too, and he’ll see receivers from Auburn and Arkansas constantly getting open against the Ole Miss secondary.

The intriguing question is how much will Miles rely on quarterback Brandon Harris if LSU is not able to control the game with Fournette.

Harris went into the Alabama game second to Arkansas’ Brandon Allen in pass efficiency among SEC quarterbacks, but Harris has had far fewer pass attempts.

Harris completed just six-of-19 passes against Alabama. One was for a touchdown of 40-ish yards in length. He was intercepted once.
