"What A Whiff By The Officials!" Ole Miss Takes 24-3 Lead On Alabama Thanks To Refs

Two missed calls by the officials allowed Ole Miss to take a three-touchdown lead on Alabama on a play that featured a missed targeting call and an improperly applied unnecessary roughness call.

Officials deemed Breeland Speaks committed the roughness after the play; video revealed his offense came well before teammate John Youngblood crossed the goal line. On top of this, Marquis Haynes appeared to hit Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts in the head to force the fumble, but no penalty was called. CBS analyst Gary Danielson was aghast.
