"It was a fake tunnel-screen to the outside". "Nothing's flawless, but we need to certainly work on the things we need to improve".
Fortunately for Wallace, he and the rest of the Ole Miss players made it back to the locker room well before the chaos on the field got out of control. The Tide have won their four subsequent games by an average margin of 43 points, and have outscored their two SEC opponents - Vanderbilt and Ole Miss - 125-3. More importantly, it turned a once dormant rivalry into one of the hottest in the conference.
Alabama had almost put up 60 on Vanderbilt the week before in a 59-0 victory in Nashville.
"I was a freshman in the first loss, so I really didn't take it too hard", Alabama safety Hootie Jones said. Can't expect any different until I see otherwise, as the Rebels have struggled against the spread dating back to last season and have struggled to cover the number against the Tigers.
Rushing drop: Ole Miss was ranked No. 128 out of 129 FBS teams in rushing offense last week.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban said after the game that Hand would be evaluated Sunday morning and that it appeared he had incurred an MCL strain. "We can't sustain drives, we can't hold on to the ball if we don't get better on third down".
College football point spread: The Crimson Tide opened as 24-point favorites, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.
"I think a few times early on we started pretty well in a game but we kinda didn't sorta sustain it in the game", Saban said. That means the Rebels basically began every drive at a 20-yard field position deficit compared to Alabama.
Here are some key factors that might make the difference for either team. Saturday's road game will kickoff at 11 a.m. But like I said, I'm never focused on any of that. "The game is going to go on if they show up or not". "They want to be great".

The last time A&M was unranked after the first five weeks of the season was in 2012, when the Aggies did land a spot in the poll until they beat MS on October 6 in Oxford. While they are notorious for rolling the next guy in, it's not always as easy as it sounds.
The Ole Miss defense was able to force a three-and-out on the first of those series.
Saban touted the undefeated Commodores two weeks ago before Alabama rolled to a 59-0 win in Nashville.
Arkansas has lost 10 consecutive games to the Crimson Tide. While the Crimson Tide are favored by 26 points, it is the Aggies' first three quarters of this season on which Saban is basing his evaluation. Only quarterback Shea Patterson and the offensive line will be affected, he said.
The total has gone under in three of Texas A&M's last four games in October. They haven't given the ball away since the first half of last year's Iron Bowl, when Jalen Hurts threw two picks.
