Alabama and Ole Miss played the most-entertaining game in the SEC this weekend. The Crimson Tide and the Rebels had a shootout going in Oxford, Mississippi on Saturday night.
Nick Saban’s team was ultimately able to hold off Lane Kiffin’s squad, winning 63-48 in one of the highest-scoring SEC games of all-time.
Kiffin’s team actually made history against Saban’s squad. While the Ole Miss coach was unable to become the first former Saban assistant coach to beat him, he did set a points record against the Crimson Tide.
Ole Miss became the first unranked team to score 48 points against Alabama.

Ole Miss’ offense looked so good that Saban wondered if the Rebels had their signals.
“It seemed like everything we did though they had an answer for,” Saban said after the game. “I don’t know if they had our signals or what. That’s not anything unusual. It seemed like every time we called something, they had the best play that they could have against it.”
He added: “We didn’t do anything well. We didn’t stop the run. We gave up some plays on the back end. … Just didn’t play very well.”
Hopefully we get more entertaining Alabama vs. Ole Miss games in the seasons to come.
