Saturday's Alabama-Ole Miss game had more at stake than good early position in the SEC West standings.
The Crimson Tide's 48-43 comeback win on the road mattered in the Miami Dolphins locker room, as well. At least, it did to rookies Laremy Tunsil and Kenyan Drake. Tunsil, a first-round pick who played at Ole Miss for three seasons, wore an Alabama hat and issued a "Roll Tide" to Drake, the former Alabama running back, in what was clearly a settle-up on a friendly wager the two had on the game.
Tunsil might have been fitting Drake for proper hat size in the first half when the Rebels took a 24-3 lead. The Crimson Tide rebounded for the win, snapping a two-game losing streak in the series, thanks largely to an interception return for a touchdown by one of Alabama's top draft prospects, senior DL Jonathan Allen.
