Ole Miss 14 Alabama 33, Final

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.
