Alabama will need a great catch like last week to defeat the Cocks

Crimson Tide fans have an opportunity to make their voices heard as junior wide receiver Tyrone Prothro’s acrobatic catch against Southern Miss is listed as one of four Pontiac Game Changing Performances from this weekend

Fans can go to www.espn.com and type in the word ‘Pontiac’.

Vote for the best play of the week to help determine which NCAA football school wins Pontiac’s weekly $5,000 general scholarship contribution. Voting begins every Sunday, 10:00 AM EST and ends Wednesday, at 11:59 PM EST.

Fans can then watch ESPN’s half-time show on Thursday to catch the weekly winner. Vote again every week leading up to the $100,000 "performance of the Year" scholarship.

This week Alabama will be in Columbia to take on the 1-1 Gamecocks, coming off a tuff lose to the overrated Georgia Bulldogs. Spurrier has the Cocks going in the right direction; the offense seems to be coming around. 2 decent performances by Sophomore QB Blake Mitchell has the offense confidence growing weekly. The new addition to the secondary last week was a shock to most but with the talent on this team I hope to see more players filling new rolls. My prediction for this SEC match-up is, Carolina 24- 17 over Bama . Ko Simpson finally gets his first INT, and Jonathan Joseph records two INT this week.
