Top 3 Ole Miss v. Alabama games

(1) 1969: Alabama 33 Ole Miss 32-Archie Manning set a single-game SEC record with 540 total yards with the Ole Miss record of 436 yards passing. This was the first prime time regular season telecast of a college football game. I wasn't alive for this game but I've heard the story of this game over and over.

(2) 1988: Ole Miss 22 Alabama 12- Ole Miss defeated Bama on their homecoming and the day the Bear Bryant museum was dedicated.

(3) 2001: Ole Miss 27 Alabama 24- This was the first victory for Ole Miss after a long drought that dated back to the 1988 victory.
