Down seven early to the 16th-ranked Mississippi State Bulldogs, Alabama’s offense needed a spark to get it going. As has become common over the course of his Tide career, Calvin Ridley provided it.
A third-and-four from the Tide’s own 31-yard-line turned into a first-and-goal on this catch and run:

Jalen Hurts would run it in two plays later to pull it back to even. On their following drive, down seven points again, the third-year receiver answered the call once more.

Joshua Jacobs was able to get the ball into the endzone on the next play to tie the game again, now 14-14.
