Although Alabama leads at the half, they find themselves in a closer than expected fight for the second straight week, leading Ole Miss by the razor thin margin of 9-0.
Alabama kicker Cade Foster has accounted for all of the scoring in this one, hitting from 28, 42, and 53 yards, respectively.
Tough break for the Tide, though, as they have lost center Ryan Kelly for the game. Kelly suffered a reported knee injury late in the second quarter, and was replaced by junior Chad Lindsay.
He isn't the only injured Tide player either. Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon missed some time in the first half due to a lower hip injury, and although he remains in the game, it could be hampering his effectiveness a bit -- Yeldon has 10 touches for 32 yards, although 23 of them came on one carry.
Ole Miss has to find a way to get the run game going in the second half if they want to get on the scoreboard -- the Rebels have just seven yards on 11 attempts, although Bo Wallace has been fairly effective through the air, going 10 of 14 for 111 yards.
