ESPN’s College GameDay is headed to the Grove next Saturday.
For the first time in the pregame show’s history, it will visit Oxford, Mississippi, and make camp inside a sea of tents in the heart of one of college football’s most iconic tailgating spots when No. 10 Ole Miss (4-0, 1-0 SEC) hosts No. 3 Alabama (4-0, 1-0).

The Rebels are 4-0 for the first time since 1970 and were a popular presason pick to be a darkhorse contender in the SEC Western Division. The favorite? Well, that would be Alabama, which is coming off of a blowout win over Florida and will be well rested after getting a perfectly timed bye week.
The last time Ole Miss beat Alabama was in 2003 ... when Eli Manning was the Rebels' quarterback.
