Jameson Williams Breaks School Record in Win Against Southern Miss
By WVUA 23 digital reporter Hunter De Siver
Alabama wide receiver Jameson Williams scored three touchdowns (including two kick returns) in a 63-14 rout against Southern Miss.
At the start of the game, Williams ran the kickoff all the way for a 100-yard touchdown.
Bryant-Denny Stadium was the loudest it’s been since Alabama-LSU in 2019.
Early in the second quarter, Bryce Young hit Jameson Williams on a deep route for an 81-yard touchdown. His second touchdown of the game would give the Tide a 35-0 lead.
Before that touchdown, tight ends Jahleel Billingsley and Cameron Latu each scored. Running back Roydell Williams also scored from 55 yards.
With 15 seconds left in the first half, Young found running back Jase McClellan for a nine-yard touchdown catch. The half ended at a score of 42-7.
Late in the third quarter, Young threw his first interception of the season.
Early in the fourth quarter, Williams returned the kickoff for an 83-yard touchdown.
Jameson Williams is the first player in Alabama football history to have multiple kick return touchdowns in one game.
The four-star receiver used to be a member of the Ohio State Buckeyes. However, in May 2021, Williams transferred to the defending champions.
Bryce Young also made history in this game. Young became the first Alabama player who completed 90% of his passes for five touchdowns.
Even though the Tide played a non-FBS school, they still got their mojo back after last week’s scare in “The Swamp”.
Next Saturday, No. 1 Alabama will host No. 13 Ole Miss at 2:30 p.m.. This game will feature the two Heisman front-runners: Bryce Young vs Matt Corral.
