Alabama Ole Miss Score
September 30, 2012 by staff
Alabama Ole Miss Score, Alabama held off a pesky Ole Miss squad for a 30-14 victory in what has proven to be the Tide’s toughest game of the young season. Hugh Freeze’s club overcame three first-half turnovers to push Alabama and cause Nick Saban’s club to play a four-quarter game for the first time in 2012.
Freshman receiver Amari Cooper caught two first-half touchdown passes from A.J. McCarron and Jeremy Shelley booted four short field goals to help Alabama avert a potential upset bid on what was a wild Saturday across college football.
The win moves Alabama to 5-0 and gives them two wins in the SEC Western division heading into its bye week.
That will do it folks, Alabama wins 33-14 in a game that was tougher than the score indicated.
As always, thanks for stopping by and stay glued to B/R for more coverage of this game and all of the happenings around college football.
Alabama cannot pound out a rushing touchdown as Ole Miss knocks Lacy backwards.
Facing a fourth-and-four inside the Rebels 10-yard line, Alabama calls timeout.
Dee Hart is walking off the field under his own power, which has to be a good sign for his injury prognosis.
McCarron has been money on third down all-night long, and this time he hits Cooper on a crossing route for a first down.
Alabama is in position to milk the clock and perhaps tack on a late score for some style points.
ESPN reports that Hart “was emotional” in talking to trainers, so his injury may be worth monitoring moving forward.
McCarron and Cooper appear to be devoloping a nice chemistry, especially on third downs, and Alabama is in the red zone once again.
Ole Miss manages to get near midfield before Alabama’s defense tightened up and forced the Rebels to punt.
Dee Hart went down awkwardly fielding that punt in a way that has to make Tide fans cringe.
Hart was forced to redshirt in 2011 after tearing his ACL in the summer before the season began.
Hopefully, this injury turns out to be less severe than the one he suffered last year.
Ole Miss has played a whale of a game on defense thus far, and have fought valiantly to keep Alabama’s offense out of the end zone, and the offense took the lead on a gutsy drive earlier this quarter.
But a huge special teams return and a quick turnover and they are down 13 points in the blink of an eye.
As I type that, Bo Wallace throws another pick with Robert Lester getting the turnover this go around and returning it to the Ole Miss 40-yard line and now Alabama can really put their foot on the Rebels’ throats if they can punch this possession in for six.
The officials are reviewing whether or not Lester fumbled it back to Ole Miss at the end of his return.
