OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Alabama scored 10 points in the final eight minutes yesterday and benefited from a reversed field ruling by replay officials to rally for a 27-24 win over Mississippi.
The ruling wiped out a 41-yard pass play on fourth down from Ole Miss quarterback Seth Adams to Shay Hodge that gave the Rebels possession at the Alabama 4-yard line with seven seconds remaining.
A five-minute review clearly showed Hodge stepped out of bounds and returned to the field to make the catch. The replay official reversed the ruling on the field.
The finish overshadowed a decisive late surge by Alabama. The Crimson Tide has won the last three meetings with Ole Miss.
Leigh Tiffin kicked the game-winning 24-yard field goal with 5:14 left. The kick was set up by an interception by Ezekial Knight.
