Grading the Tide: UA 27, Ole Miss 24

Nick Saban called Saturday's effort the best game of the season for John Parker Wilson. His final numbers were 26 of 40 for 265 yards, one interception and a rushing touchdown. The junior completed two-thirds of his passes, led scoring drives on UA's first three possessions, and converted 15 first downs through the air. He spread completions to nine different receivers and looked as comfortable as he has been since the Arkansas game. Although he was facing the SEC's worst secondary playing without its best player, he also stood in better against a solid Ole Miss pass rush.
