Saturday Recap: Alabama 13 Ole Miss 10
Alabama 13 Ole Miss 10
I thought the Rebs would keep it close- didn't think it would be this close though. Ole Miss played and mighty well, and had their oppurtunities to win. They missed two field goals, and had 3rd and Goal at the 2 before getting two delay of games. Mico McSwain looked good for the Rebs and could definitely be a spark in the future.
Bama could have beaten this team by more, and should have. A few costly mistakes- turnovers and missed field goals kept the Rebs in the game. Bama cannot afford performances like this against the likes of Tennessee, LSU, and Auburn. Brodie Croyle proved once again he is an excellent leader for the Tide, and gave Bama everything Spurlock took away from Ole Miss- namely game smarts and leadership. Darby played well and gave the Tide their only TD with his 48 yard run.
Alabama (6-0 4-0) up next: Tennessee
Ole Miss (2-4 0-3) up next: Kentucky
Alabama has the Third Saturday on the Fourth Saturday. They need a win against the hated Vols to keep them alive for the Rose Bowl run. A loss means they cannot afford any slip ups against LSU or Auburn if they want to win the West.
Ole Miss needs a win against Kentucky if they want any shot at a bowl this year. They seem to be improving steadily, and if their D continues to remain strong they ought to have a chance of upsetting LSU or Auburn.
