Sport: Watch: Ole Miss QB Jaxson Dart victim of brutal facemask penalty

Kickoff time, television announced for Alabama-Ole Miss game

  Kickoff time, television announced for Alabama-Ole Miss game Alabama will face Ole Miss on Nov. 12 at 2:30 p.m. CT on CBS, the SEC announced Monday. The trip to Oxford will be the Tide’s first since 2020, when several records were broken by the end of a frantic, 63-48 win for Alabama in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. That was the first season at Ole Miss for Lane Kiffin, whose Rebels are 18-4 since the start of last season and ranked in the top 11 of both major polls entering their idle week. Alabama beat Ole Miss in Tuscaloosa last season, 42-21. Next week will be the fourth time this season that Alabama has part of CBS’ game of the week broadcast after the network televised previous games against Arkansas, Texas A&M and Tennessee.

Jaxson Dart nearly had his head torn off on a vicious facemask penalty during Saturday’s game between his Ole Miss Rebels and the Alabama Crimson Tide.

The game was tied 17-17 early in the third quarter and Ole Miss had the ball at the Bama 45. The Rebels were in trouble with a 3rd-and-18, but Dallas Turner bailed them out.

Turner came off the edge and made a great inside move to get to Dart. But the sophomore linebacker grabbed Dart’s facemask and yanked down the quarterback for a clear penalty.
