WATCH: Ole Miss scores controversial 73-yard TD
Ole Miss provided the play of the year during the first half of its game at Alabama on Saturday night, and the Rebels followed it up with a controversial 73-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter.
After its 30-10 lead was cut to 30-24, Ole Miss faced a 2nd-and-1 at its own 27-yard-line when quarterback Chad Kelly rolled right and found a wide-open Cody Core down the right sideline:

Core ran the ball in for a 73-yard touchdown, but a flag on the field indicated that Kelly had crossed the line of scrimmage on his throw.
The infraction was reviewed, and Kelly’s throw was determined legal, setting off a cacophony of boos from the crowd in Tuscaloosa.
While Kelly might have been clean on the play, fans will undoubtedly ask about the Ole Miss lineman who appeared to be ineligibly downfield:
