TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — 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.READ MORE: Pasco, First FL County To Distribute COVID-19 Vaccines Via Walgreens
