Alabama looks lifeless again on offense for a second consecutive week.
Jalen Milroe earned the starting job at quarterback, but the Crimson Tide scored six points in the first half against Mississippi inside Bryant-Denny Stadium. He completed 11 of 14 passes; however, Milroe tossed a costly interception in the end zone.
Ole Miss leads 7-6 at halftime. The Rebels have three sacks and eight tackles for loss on defense. Alabama has not established a rushing attack. Milroe had two long runs, but that was it. He has 12 yards rushing as the Rebels got to him for sacks. Jase McClellan has a team-high 24 rushing yards on six attempts. CJ Dippre is Alabama’s leading receiver with two catches for 28 yards
Jalen Hale, a freshman, has one reception for 30 yards.
Alabama’s defense held Mississippi to seven points, but its offense cannot do anything. The Tide has created one sack and four quarterback hurries, but linebacker Deontae Lawson left the game with an injury. He is questionable to return to the game.
Terrence Ferguson, an offensive lineman, also suffered an injury for Alabama in the first half.
Alabama is in danger of losing to Mississippi and having its postseason dreams end early.
