A 40-yard kick return by Wallace starts Rebels at the 45. A 9-yard gain on a pass by Bolden, then a 10-yard run by Bolden, and the Rebels are at the 33.

Bolden loses 1, but Terrence Cody is helped off the field favoring his right knee. It doesn’t look good for Cody at least for the rest of the day.

Let’s see if that affects how Ole Miss runs the ball. Second-and-11 as play resumes.

A 7-yard gain to Hodge, then incomplete to Summers on a fade. On fourth down Snead goes up the middle to the 10 on a draw. Not a play the Rebels have shown this year. Plus 18.

First crack at the middle minus Cody is a 3-yard loss for Enrique Davis.

Rebels can’t get past the 9.

Fake to Jason Cook for a touchdown. Rob Park, the holder, throws the shovel pass, and Cook runs to the end zone.

Shene is good, and it’s 24-10.

Cody is being taken to the locker room.

Tide gets to the Ole Miss 30 after Cassius Vaughn turns the tight end loose and the play gains 40. But on second down Wilson’s first bad pass of the day, a floater over the middle, is picked by Lewis at the goalline and returned to the 13.

Rebels go three-and-out from the 13 and punt. Tide at the 47.

Bama goes three-and-out thanks to a Peria Jerry sack. Rebels punted back to the 16 and reach the 30 after a roughing the passer call.

False start against John Jerry, so it’s back to the 25.

McCluster lines up in the I and goes for 3 yards up the middle. Trying something different with Cody out.

When you can run you can do other things. Snead to Breaux in the middle for 24 yards.

Time out Ole Miss with 1:11 left.

Rebels are at the 24 with third-and-1. After the pass to Breaux, two Wild Rebel plays, one a carry by Summers, the other by McCluster, have gained 14 yards. There was also a 9-yard pass to Wallace.

Davis at the middle doesn’t get it. Fourth-and-less than 1, and Ole Miss is stopped when Davis at right guard is stood up by linebacker Donta Hightower.

Alabama ends the quarter at its 42 after Ingram rips off an 18-yard gain.

Here’s a halftime quote from Saban distributed by media relations:

“We gave up one big play, but we did a good job of stopping them in the red zone and we only gave up a field goal.  We’ve had some nice balance on offense today, we made some nice adjustments.  What we’ve got to do is come out for the second half and play the way we played in the second quarter.”

Alabama 24, Ole Miss 10

    Never thought I’d say this, but that was a great tackle by Snead.

    Great Throw by Snead – great catch for TD 17 -24 Bama
