TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- For 15 seconds, it looked like No. 1 Alabama was beatable.

For 15 seconds, the Crimson Tide were just that.

For the briefest of moments, Ole Miss gave the rest of college football hope, taking a 1-point lead after what was just the third touchdown allowed by the Alabama defense this season.
Then, Alabama return man Christion Jones didn't spare a minute -- he took 15 seconds to be exact -- to soothe the superficial pain of trailing an opponent for the first time all year, sprinting 99 yards with the kickoff return for a touchdown.

All was right with the world again, the scoreboard in Bryant-Denny Stadium no longer askew. Alabama scored and scored and scored again, taking Ole Miss' hopes of an upset to the woodshed. The Crimson Tide's 33-14 victory restored order for a team accustomed to having its way on the football field.
