The game went to overtime tied at 17, Alabama had a chance to win but Lee Tiffin missed a 37 field goal attempt, one of 3 costly misses in the game.  In double overtime, freshman quarterback Mitch Mustain put the ball on the money to his old high school teammate Ben Cleveland for the game tying toucdown.  The extra point was good and the Hogs put up their biggest win in some time, beating Alabama 24-23 in double overtime.
