McCarron Satisfied With Win Over Rebels

The Alabama offense settled for three first half field goals to take a 9-0 lead in the first half against Ole Miss Saturday evening at Bryant-Denny Stadium in the 61st meeting between the two schools. A.J. McCarron set a new career high with 25 completions breaking his old mark of 23 which he recorded twice, the last time in the 2012 BCS National Championship Game against LSU.

After rushing for only 36 first half yards on 15 carries, the Tide utilized an effective ground game, 218 yards on 25 attempts, in the second thirty minutes to run away with the 25-0 shutout.

A.J. McCarron finished with 25 completions on 32 attempts for 180 yards passing. His fourth quarter interception was the third of the season for the fifth-year senior equaling last season's total.

Alabama, ranked 5th in SEC scoring with a 38.3 ppg, has scored in 160 consecutive games – the longest streak in program history. Ole Miss, rated 10th in SEC defense scoring, had surrendered an average of 23.7 ppg in three previous contests.

McCarron spoke to reporters after the game. Recommended Stories
