Saban couldn't hide the pride, joy he felt following Ole Miss win
Sep 20 2016 by Marjorie Miles
But for at least one game, Saban's squad showed that even when it's not flawless, it can fight and overcome. But the top-ranked Crimson Tide resiliently punched back late in the half and held off the No. 17 Rebels in the second half to escape Oxford, Miss., with a 48-43 victory. "What this team is doing, I love the fight, just the the fact we kept our poise so well to come back and make the plays to win". People who quit can't overcome the burdens. I said if you guys really love each other, you'll be able to overcome whatever you have to. An NCAA rule allows for games to be shortened by time if the coaches agree.No 9 Wisconsin 23, Georgia State 17: Backup quarterback Alex Hornibrook led Wisconsin on three scoring drives in the second half, helping the sluggish Badgers beat Georgia State. Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts (2) attempts a pass against MS in the first half of an NCAA college football game, Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016 in Oxford, Miss. Placekicker Adam Griffith connected on two of three field goal attempts, connecting from 32 and 30 yards and missing from 47. With quarterback Luke Del Rio going down during the game with an apparent knee injury, the Gator defense will have to play at a high level once again if they want to compete with the Tennessee Volunteers next week. The Rebels, however, couldn't sustain the momentum from Stringfellow's 44-yard reception, but netted points from the drive with a 23-yard field goal by kicker Gary Wunderlich to push the advantage to 10-3. He also had four receptions for 27 yards, but his performance was somewhat tarnished by two fumbles, one of which was recovered by the Bulldogs and one of which resulted in a failed fourth-and-short play in MSU territory in the fourth quarter. Defensively, the Rebels will look to pressure the young Eason with a defensive line led by Marquis Haynes, but containing Chubb will be the key focus. And as well as the Aggies started both the 2014 and 2015 seasons, they didn't fare too well down the stretch. Through three games, Alabama ranks 76th nationally with an average of 62.7 yards of penalties a game.
Alabama rallied from 21 points down tying the largest in school history. Ole Miss went three-and-out on the ensuing series, and Alabama again capitalized, as Eddie Jackson returned the Rebels' punt 85 yards for a touchdown to cut the Ole Miss lead to 24-17 at the half. The first was a 52-6 win over then-No. "They have to do what I've asked them to do to be reinstated". The Crimson Tide came back and won 48-43. Kelly has made some unfortunate mistakes, he hasn't had support from a running game and the defense has worn down, depriving the Rebels of two potential marquee wins.
In the next year or two Jalen will most likely have to deal with a new offensive coordinator. The battle of SEC heavyweights saw several Crimson Tide players and coaches needing IVs during and after the game. (Jones), Issac (Gross) and Evan (Engram), Chad (Kelly) some of those guys, Tony Conner.

Sources, however, could not immediately confirm that Rahami travelled to Pakistan and Afghanistan, as other media have reported . Early on Monday, FBI agents swarmed an apartment above a fried chicken restaurant in Elizabeth that's tied to Rahami.
Russell Wilson expected to play Week 2 vs. Los Angeles Rams
The winningest quarterback to begin an National Football League career has never missed a Seahawks play or even practice. With just 31 seconds remaining in the game, Wilson found Doug Baldwin on a 2-yard fade for the game-winning touchdown.
Ole Miss kicked deep on the ensuing kickoff, but Alabama converted on a 3rd-and-inches from the Ole Miss 45-yard line to hang on for the win. But the Tigers almost squandered a comfortable lead, giving up two touchdowns 4:10 and 3:30 left, the second after the Bulldogs (1-2, 1-1) recovered an onside kick.
"This was a tough game", he said. Down by six to Missouri with 1:30 left in the game and facing a fourth-and-ten from 20 yards out, Eason threw a gorgeous touchdown pass to Isaiah MaKenzie, who also had himself a night.
Ole Miss is 10 for 10 in the red zone this season, with all touchdowns. Over the past couple of season, when you think of a Kentucky running back, you would most likely think of Stanley "Boom" Williams, even if it is just because of his name.
