2014 Alabama vs Mississippi

Mississippi pulled off a stunner of a win, upsetting Alabama, 23-17, in one of the biggest wins in school history. Trailing 17-10 late, Rebels quarterback Bo Wallace hit Vince Sanders streaking down the field behind Alabama’s defense to tie the game.

On the ensuing kickoff, Alabama kick returner Christion Jones brought the ball out of the end zone and tried to pick his way through Ole Miss’ coverage, only to be stripped of the ball. Ole Miss recovered at the 31-yard line. Five plays later, Wallace found running back Jaylen Walton in the end zone, where Walton made a one-handed grab. After a penalty gave Mississippi a second chance at the extra point, Alabama blocked the extra point to give themselves a chance to win.

The Crimson Tide moved the ball into Mississippi territory, thanks to a long catch and run by Amari Cooper. They went for it all when Blake Sims looked deep to O.J. Howard in the end zone, but he overthrew his tight end and the pass was intercepted by Senquez Golson to seal the game.

The win was Ole Miss’ first over a top-ranked team, after Alabama came in ranked at the top of the coaches poll. Wallace finished with 251 yards on 18-of-31 passing with 3 TD, spreading the ball around to eight different receivers.
