Camurati: a Sweet Victory for the Rebels at Home

HottyToddy.com managing editor Amelia Camurati was on the sidelines for the Rebels’ big win over Alabama. Here’s a few of her photos from the field tonight.

Since freshman quarterback Devante Kincade likes to mess up my photos during practice, I asked for one amazing one in return.

It’s thrilling enough to be an Ole Miss alum and make it onto the field. It’s a completely different experience when you’re on the field for one of the biggest games in Ole Miss football history.
I almost got run over more times than I can count, between the intense media presence on the sidelines and the fans who took over Jerry Hollingsworth Field after the clock struck 0.
When Vince Sanders landed in the end zone for the touchdown that put Ole Miss on top, I stopped being able to be an unbiased media member and lost my mind. I Hotty Toddyed with the crowd. I rushed the field. I even helped a few fellow fans over the wall. I took selfies with football players, and I enjoyed every second of the victory with my Rebel family.
I will not soon forget the first win over the Crimson Tide in 11 years, let alone the only win I’ve ever been present for. I often talk about being at the big Memphis win over Tennessee in 1996, but this game may have replaced that as my top football memory.
Hotty Toddy, y’all!

The Landshark defense held the Alabama offense to only 17 points in the game.

Senior quarterback Bo Wallace went perfect for the game with no interceptions and three touchdown passes.

Wallace improved his passing game and managed a few runs to get Ole Miss’ first downs.

Vince Sanders sprinted down the field for a late-game touchdown to tie the game at 17.

Coach Hugh Freeze told media after the game he was impressed with the win but had no doubt the Rebels could pull it off with concentration and determination.

Special teams came up with a loose ball in the fourth to give Ole Miss momentum to finish out strong.

Katy Perry was the guest picker on College GameDay earlier in the Grove, but stuck around to cheer the Rebels on.

Evan Engram waved to fans in the crowd after the big win.

As fans rushed the field, a number of players were emotional and found embraces from family and friends.

Security guards held fans back until the game ended, but the student section soon jumped the walls and tore down the goal posts.
