In the night cap, Alabama hosted Ole Miss in a battle of Top 15 programs. Like LSU, the Rebels controlled the pace of the game – and it started with the opening kickoff when Ole Miss forced the first  of five Alabama turnovers.

Ole Miss opened up a 43-24 fourth quarter lead, and though the Crimson Tide made a strong comeback attempt, and had the football with a chance to win the game with under a minute to play, Ole Miss held on for a historic 43-37 victory – the first in Tuscaloosa since 1988 and the first time Ole Miss ever beat Alabama in consecutive seasons.

Elsewhere, Georgia took care of business against South Carolina and Florida survived a trip to Kentucky. The rest of the league went 5-1 in non-conference games, with Arkansas serving as the lone blemish.

Understandably, Ole Miss and LSU surged to the top of the Week 4 SEC Power Rankings, but who took the No. 1 spot? Let’s take a look.
