Turnovers doom Alabama Saturday night against Ole Miss

(WAFF) -

It figured to be a good game between Alabama and Ole Miss Saturday.

That couldn't be farther from the truth for Tide fans early on. Turnovers. Of the total 43 points Ole Miss scored in their win, 23 of those came from that dreaded word in football.

Can't do, no matter who you're playing. You add that with already playing a really good team, you have the end result. A second straight loss to the Rebels in as many years.

"We had a coverage bust on the long pass. Miscommunication, everybody wasn't playing the same coverage,” Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban said after Saturday’s game. “On the option pass, just a lot of things that, we did, that we controlled, that allowed them  to put us in a hole. You know they got 17 points off of turnovers, that had nothing to do with the quarterbacks. So that was the hole that we got ourselves in."

Alabama is back in action Saturday when they host Louisiana-Monroe. Kickoff is set for 3 p.m.
