The two-yard touchdown pass from John Parker Wilson to Le’Ron McClain that gave Alabama a 26-23 victory over Ole Miss in overtime on Saturday is one of four finalists for the Pontiac Game Changing Performance of the Week.

The team that receives the most votes for its performance will earn a $5,000 contribution to the school’s general scholarship fund. It will also become a finalist for the $100,000 performance of the year.

Alabama had five game changing performances last season, including Tyrone Prothro’s over-the-back of a Southern Miss defender pass reception that earned the $100,000 grand prize for The University.

Offense: D.J. Hall 5 rec. 119 yds 1 TD, school record with 7th career 100-yard receiving game, 4th straight game with 100 rec. yds and tied school record with 4th 100 yd rec. game in one season.

Special Teams: Jimmy Johns – 1 tackle inside the 20-yard line on a kick return (at the 18-yard line) in the first quarter
