Alabama boasts one of the most electric offenses in college football. The Crimson Tide have at least three NFL-caliber wide receivers on the field at any point in the game - and all three are capable of taking it to the house on any given play.

On Saturday afternoon, it was DeVonta Smith who came out and dominated from the opening whistle.

With Henry Ruggs sidelined for a big portion of the first half with an injury, Smith went nuts.

Smith pulled in eight receptions for 221 yards and four touchdowns - in the first half.

Smith entered the game with 263 receiving yards on the season. He nearly equaled his season total in one half of play against Ole Miss.

The junior wide receiver pulled in more touchdowns in the first half against the Rebels than he had all season long.

Ole Miss held tough for the first quarter, but Alabama took over at the end of the first half. The Crimson Tide went into halftime with a 31-10 win.
