Alabama's 25-0 win was the first shutout hung on Ole Miss since 1998 when they lost to Arkansas 34-0.

The nation's number one recruit from 2013, defensive end Robert Nkemdiche, recorded 0 stats. 0 tackles, 0 sacks, 0 TFL, 0 fumbles. By contrast, true freshman D-lineman A'Shawn Robinson had 3 tackles - all solos.
True freshman cornerback Eddie Jackson had his first career interception in the first quarter. The first of many more to come.
Sophomore linebacker Denzel Devall recorded two sacks for losses of 16 yards.
Running back T.J. Yeldon has, as Nick Saban put it, a "butt bruise". He should be good to go next Saturday vs. Georgia State.
Center Ryan Kelly suffered a sprain of his medial collateral ligament (MCL). He will be out 2-3 weeks. Chad Lindsay will start in his place and Kellen Williams will be his back-up. I must say, Lindsay played pretty well.
There are no other serious concerns to report for the Tide.

Following a 62-41 loss to Arizona State on Saturday night, Southern Cal AD Pat Haden finally pulled the plug firing head coach Lane Kiffin. The short-lived Tennessee coach had a record of 28–15 (17–12 in PAC-12) at So Cal and 10-8 (5-6) in the last season and a half. Karma has landed.
UPDATE: Ed Orgeron reportedly will be named interim coach.
