Ole Miss-Alabama game still legendary

Story on the first televised night game Ole Miss/Bama @ Legion Field 1969. My favorite part of the article: "Coach," Arledge said, "we're not going to be able to do the night game because the candlepower of the lights is not strong enough. Do you think you could do something about it?" "Don't worry about it," Bryant replied. "I'll talk to the mayor. If he won't do it, he won't be re-elected." "Bryant talked to somebody," Cook said. "We sent somebody to check the lights again. They were good enough. We did the game."
