Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin told fans to “get your popcorn” ready right before kickoff against Alabama, Saturday, and the Crimson Tide proceeded to drop 28 first-half points on the Rebels.

Ole Miss’ offense sputtered on its first drive as it turned the ball over on downs, and Alabama capitalized immediately. Alabama scored a touchdown on the following series. The 13-play, 94-yard drive was capped by a 16-yard touchdown pass from Bryce Young to John Metchie III.
