ESPN College GameDay picks for Alabama, Ole Miss football

Lee Corso picked Alabama.

Kirk Herbstreit picked Alabama.

Desmond Howard picked Alabama.

David Pollack picked Alabama.

Celebrity guest picker Alex Rodriguez picked Alabama. 

"I gotta go with Roll Tide," Rodriguez said. "Nick Saban does not lose to his former assistants. He's 20-0, make it 21-0 today over Lane Kiffin." 

"Ole Miss defense can't stop anybody," Howard said.

Pat McAfee predicted Alabama and Ole Miss would go over the 68.5-point over/under. 

Chris "The Bear" Fallica predicted Alabama and Ole Miss would go over the 68.5-point over/under.

"(Alabama offensive coordinator Steve) Sarkisian and this Alabama offense, they have all this motion that lets Mac Jones decide whether or not it's a man-to-man or it's a zone coverage," McAfee said. "If it's man-to-man, ain't nobody can keep up with (Jaylen) Waddle, who is faster than Usain Bolt. And if it's zone, Mac Jones is smart enough to be able to pick out what route concept he likes. (Ole Miss head coach) Lane Kiffin is going to score some points, even though there is a torrential downpour coming. I like the over." 

"That's a great number at 68.5," Fallica said. "I agree with you. Alabama might score 50, but I think Ole Miss is going to score 34 or 35 points as well. (Matt) Corral has been a completely different quarterback this year under Lane. Lane can coach offense, and they've got players. Alabama's defense hasn't gotten teams off the field on third downs. I'm with you there."
