Ole Miss defeated Alabama in each of their past two meetings. That’s an uncommon feat for an opponent during Nick Saban’s tenure in Tuscaloosa.

After winning a 23-17 thriller in Oxford in 2014, the Rebels defeated the Tide 43-37 last season. Several lapses led to Alabama suffering its only loss of an eventual national championship season.

But Saban thinks he’s figured out what hindered the Tide in 2015: anxiety.

The five-time national champion claimed his team was anxious during last year’s game against Ole Miss and wants to avoid “creating anxiety for players”¬†leading up to this year’s matchup in Oxford on Saturday.

Saban went 57-12 against SEC teams during his first nine seasons at Alabama (2007-15). Four of those losses came during his first season and three took place in 2010. Otherwise, Saban has never lost more than one conference game in a single season.
