Alabama squeaks by Ole Miss, 27-24

Alabama scored 10 points in the final eight minutes and benefited from a reversed field ruling by replay to rally for a 27-24 win over Mississippi.

The ruling wiped out a 41-yard pass play on fourth down from Ole Miss quarterback Seth Adams to Shay Hodge that gave the Rebels possession at the Alabama 4-yard line with seven seconds remaining. After a five-minute review clearly showed Hodge stepped out of bounds and returned to the field to make the catch, the replay official reversed the ruling on the field. Alabama took over on downs for a final snap at their own 45-yard line to seal it.

The finish overshadowed a decisive late surge by Alabama, who has won the last three meetings with Ole Miss. Leigh Tiffin kicked the game-winning 24-yard field goal with 5:14 left, set up by an interception by Ezekial Knight.

Alabama tied the game on the previous possession on a 3-yard touchdown run by Terry Grant.
