Everything Nick Saban said following Alabama's road win over Ole Miss

Nick Saban and the No. 9 Alabama Crimson Tide got back in the win column on Saturday with a 30-24 win over Lane Kiffin and the No. 11 Ole Miss in Oxford.

The Crimson Tide started off a bit slow falling behind the Rebels 17-7 but would finish the game on a 23-7 run to cap off the much-needed victory.

Bryce Young and Jase McClellan carried the Alabama offense in the second half while Byron Young helped anchor the Alabama defense that held Ole Miss to just seven points in the second half.

Here is everything coach Saban had to say following Alabama’s exciting road win over the Rebels.

Opening statement “Really, really proud of our players in terms of the way they competed in the game. 

I think that’s the big thing that we wanted to get our players to get back to is,

you’re responsible for the identity that you create and it’s personal in terms of how you play and how you compete in the game to try to dominate the guy you’re playing against.

And I saw a lot of that in the second half, so we took a step in the right direction.

We had to overcome a lot of adversity in the game.

We didn’t get off to a great start,

but the players just kept playing one play at a time and made the plays at the end of the game that we needed to make.

“Jase McClellan, the offensive line stepped up in the second half.

Defense had some big stops. They only scored once in the second half,

got the stop when we needed to.

I thought Bryce did a really good job of managing the game today.

It was a tough night in a lot of ways but a great night for us because

I think we took a step in the right direction as a football team,

and I’m really proud of our guys for the way they competed in the game.”
