Heisman HYPE Game of the Week #3

Heisman HYPE Game of the Week #3

#15 Ole Miss at #2 Alabama

A big time SEC West matchup early in the season. The Tide are looking to avenge their loss to Ole Miss in Oxford last year. Alabama running back Derrick Henry, a top Heisman contender looks to maintain his strong start to the season (6 TDs and 7.8 yards per carry through 2 games). The Ole Miss defense is giving up 3.1 yards per carry, so something will have to give. 

For some further context, Mark Ingram, the last Alabama player (and last running back) to win the Heisman, made a strong push to put himself into the Heisman  discussion in 2009 with a 172 yard 1 touchdown performance against Ole Miss in week 6.
