    Alabama used a strong defensive effort to blank Ole Miss 25-0 on Saturday night at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

    Ole Miss, which had been scoring 38 points per game entering Saturday's action, was held to no points and just 205 total yards in the game.

    On offense, it was the ground attack that did the most damage for Alabama on Saturday. T.J. Yeldon led the way with 121 yards rushing and a touchdown. Kenyan Drake had 99 yards on the ground and added a score of his own.

    Quarterback A.J. McCarron was 25-of-32 through the air, but for only 180 yards. He did not throw a touchdown, but did have one interception.
