MONTGOMERY, AL (WLBT) - Mississippi defeated neighbor Alabama for the a second consecutive season Monday night in the annual MS/AL All-Star Game.

Mississippi out-rushed Alabama 257 to 57 yards.

Northwest Rankin’s Jarrian Jones, playing both ways for Mississippi, caught one pass for 35 yards on offense and intercepted a pass on defense. Brandon’s Jonathan Mingo caught two passes for 56 yards and Velma Jackson’s Antavious Willis caught two passes for 21 yards.
