This week's 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.

Folks still talk about the 1969 game though.... Word on the street that Archie cried.

The very first college football game to be televised in prime time. The Tide defeated Ole Miss 33-32 in Birmingham in one of the most electrifying games ever. Scott Hunter hit 22 of 29 passes for 300 yards in his fabled duel with Rebel quarterback Archie Manning, who completed 33 of 52 for 436 yards while he rushed for 104 more. Posted Image

Well Noah I was at that game. Little did I know that Archie set the most offense in a game for a single person record. (somebody tied that record against bama not too long ago) I was young and there was one certain cheerleader that I bet I could remember today if I had a heavy dose of vitamins. Yet I could not watch her the whole time cause Archie was in the zone like I had never seen before. Bear said Archie could beat you by himself and throughout Archie's entire career that is just what he was forced to do.
