'Bama Sidesteps Rebel Invasion

The Ole' Miss Rebels gave the Crimson Tide a scare Saturday. After becoming the only team to score first on Bama this year, Ole Miss scored 21 unanswered points in the second half to whittle the Alabama lead to 4. With little over a minute remaing in the contest, the Rebels drove into Alabama territory.

Bama fans breathed a collective sigh of relief as the Tide defense denied the Rebels a 4th down conversion, ending the game with a turnover on downs.

Injured in the game was standout freshman lineman Terrance Cody. Cody, along with his normal defensive line duties, aided the offense in a first half touchdown, shoving the Ole' Miss defensive line into the endzone. Cody suffered an apparent knee injury early in the second half. Later reports indicated that Cody suffered a knee-sprain which will not require surgery.
