Ole Miss and Alabama waged war for four quarters, but it was the 9th-ranked Crimson Tide that came out on top 30-24 at a packed Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on Saturday.
The Rebels got out to a 17-7 lead with 5:09 to go in the 1st half, but Alabama bounced back and outscored Ole Miss 23-7 the remainder of the game. The Rebel offense tallied 403 yards, and the defensive effort kept Ole Miss in the game down the stretch, holding Alabama to just 317 yards of total offense – their fewest since 2012.
But despite the almost 100-yard disparity, the Crimson Tide’s defense held the Rebels at bay when it counted.
Ole Miss QB Jaxson Dart, wide receiver Malik Heath, and defensive back Miles Battle all spoke about the loss after the game. Video is courtesy of Ole Miss Sports Productions.
