No. 15 Ole Miss holds on to upset No. 2 Alabama 43-37
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Chad Kelly completed a deflected 66-yard touchdown pass and added two more long ones in the fourth quarter to help No. 15 Mississippi beat No. 2 Alabama 43-37 on Saturday night.
The Rebels (3-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) left the topsy-turvy game with their first victory in Bryant-Denny Stadium since 1988, and second straight in a one-sided series. The Crimson Tide (2-1, 0-1) had been 25-1 in Tuscaloosa against Ole Miss and had never lost two straight.
The Rebels made two final defensive stands, the first when Tony Bridges intercepted a deep ball from Jake Coker, who came off the bench to lead a comeback from a 30-10 deficit.
Kelly delivered big play after big play after an ineffective first half, none wilder than a fling and a prayer in the third quarter, a 66-yard deflection caught by Quincy Adeboyejo for a touchdown.
