If you were impressed by Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans posting 279 receiving yards against defending national champion Alabama on Sept. 14, be sure to catch Ole Miss' visit to Tuscaloosa this weekend.
Rebels quarterback Bo Wallace not only called out his opponent Monday, he called out his opponent's opponent, according to al.com.
Things we learned
From Stanford learning a lesson against ASU to Baylor's offensive onslaught, here are the things we learned from the fourth weekend of college football play. More ...
"I think we have better receivers than A&M," Wallace said. "They want to talk about Mike Evans being so good, but we have Donte (Moncrief) and I think Laquon (Treadwell) is going to be that way. We have better players on the outside than A&M does."
Moncrief (6-foot-3, 226 pounds) is considered one of the top NFL draft prospects in the junior class, and Treadwell, a freshman, has been one of the Southeastern Conference's most impressive newcomers this season. The two have combined for 27 receptions, although Moncrief, who has said he will consider early NFL draft entry after the season, is behind pace to match his 979-yard season from a year ago.
As for Alabama's cornerbacks, Wallace didn't come off overly impressed with them, either. In fact, he provided a bit of draft analysis on them.
"Yeah, I think we can put points on them," Wallace said. "I think we can put points on anybody. ... I wouldn't say a dropoff, but when you have first-round corners every year, I don't know if they are exactly first-round corners. But if you have a guy going in the top 10, you're going to have a little bit of a drop off the next year."
The Crimson Tide's top cornerback, Deion Belue, missed last week's win over Colorado State with an injury. Belue is expected to practice this week, but its unclear whether he'll play against the Rebels. If he doesn't, the Crimson Tide will be short-handed against one of the SEC's top receiving tandems.
Alabama had a first-round pick at cornerback last season in Dee Milliner (New York Jets). It's little surprise that Wallace is so keenly aware of Milliner's absence -- in last year's 33-14 Alabama win over the Rebels, Milliner intercepted Wallace, broke up four other passes, and also recorded an assisted sack.
