BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -
The Southeastern Conference announced today that CBS Sports will televise the Alabama-Mississippi football game beginning at 2:30 p.m. CT from Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, Miss., on Saturday, Oct. 10. It marks the second time this season that Alabama has been televised by CBS following a 35-7 win against Arkansas on Sept. 26 in Tuscaloosa.
Alabama's two-game road swing through the SEC continues with its trip to No. 21 Mississippi. Alabama carries a 45-9-2 edge in the all-time series and has won five straight over the Rebels, including a 24-20 decision in Tuscaloosa last season. The Tide's last trip to Oxford resulted in a tight 27-24 win. The last four games in the series - all Alabama wins - have been decided by four points or less. UA is 5-3 all-time in Oxford and 12-8-1 in Mississippi, including games in Jackson, Columbus and Greenville.
