Flashback To 1970

Saturday's highly anticipated meeting between the longtime SEC rivals marks the first time since 1970 that both Ole Miss and Alabama entered the game ranked in the top 20. The 1969 encounter is considered one of the greatest games in SEC history, as the Crimson Tide prevailed 33-32 despite Archie Manning's 540 total yards, which still stands today as a conference record. Manning would have his revenge a year later when the No. 7 Rebels faced the No. 17 Tide in Jackson. The following is the Jackson Daily News' account of the events of October 3, 1970.
