Big man's pick-six proves the game winner for another wild Alabama-Ole Miss matchup


The Alabama-Ole Miss game may have established itself as officially the wackiest game on the SEC's yearly schedule. For the past two years this game has been absolutely nuts and the 2016 edition didn't disappoint.

Ole Miss would blow an 18 point lead and Alabama would almost blow an 18 point lead. There was a punt return touchdown, two fumble return touchdowns, a pick-six, a successful onside kick, controversial scores, weird injuries, long touchdown throws, and what seemed like endless official reviews.

The play that proved to be the game winner for Alabama was one of those wacky plays, a pick six for Tide defensive lineman Jonathan Allen.

Isn't it great to see a big man score?


Alabama would go up 48-30 but would have to whether a late Ole Miss comeback to hold on to a 48-43 win. It's safe to say Allen won the belt Saturday.
