Crimson Tide clip Ole Miss with 10-point rally, late replay reversal

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- John Parker Wilson passed for 265 yards and Alabama scored 10 points in the final eight minutes and benefited from a critical replay reversal in the closing seconds to beat Mississippi 27-24 on Saturday.

Ole Miss quarterback Seth Adams completed a 41-yard pass to Shay Hodge to give the Rebels possession at the Alabama 4 with 7 seconds left.

After a 5-minute review clearly showed Hodge stepped out of bounds and returned to the field to make the catch, the play was ruled illegal and Alabama (5-2, 3-1 Southeastern Conference) took over on downs for a final snap to seal the victory.

Ole Miss (2-5, 0-4) has lost three straight to Alabama, each by three points.

Leigh Tiffin put Alabama ahead with a 24-yard field goal with 5:14 left that was set up by an interception by Ezekial Knight. Alabama tied the game on the previous possession on a 3-yard touchdown run by Terry Grant with 7:11 remaining.

Wilson went 26-of-40 and D.J. Hall pulled down 11 receptions for 140 yards. Alabama finished with 420 yards of total offense, but was plagued by two second-half turnovers and a blocked punt that gave the Rebels a 24-17 lead into the final period.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 131 yards on 20 carries and Adams was 22-of-40 for 284 yards and two touchdown passes for the Rebels.
