No. 13 Alabama overcame a slow start to beat No. 15 Ole Miss 24-10.
The Crimson Tide trailed 7-6 at halftime but scored on back-to-back possessions in the third quarter as the defense clamped down on the Rebels’ offense.
Alabama’s first score of the third quarter came on its third field goal of the game following a bizarre sequence that led to the Crimson Tide running a quarterback sneak on first down before the kick.
Jalen Milroe then hit Jalen Hale for a 33-yard TD in the back of the end zone as Hale made a phenomenal catch. Saturday’s game was Milroe’s third start of the season and the first since he didn’t play a snap in Alabama’s 17-3 win over South Florida in Week 3.
Ole Miss was able to cut Alabama’s lead to seven after the TD to Hale, but Alabama responded with one of its most efficient drives of the season. The Tide’s six-play 75-yard drive included five rushing attempts by Jase McClellan as he capped it off with an eight-yard score.
McClellan rushed for 54 yards on the drive and finished the game averaging over six yards an attempt.
