Ole Miss fell to Alabama on Saturday in a crucial SEC matchup, 30-24, but there was at least one play that sparked debate involving quarterback Jaxson Dart.

In the third quarter, Dart was trying to avoid Alabama’s pass rush when he was met by linebacker Dallas Turner. Dart and the Rebels started a pass-action game and when he got the ball back, Turner grabbed him by the facemask and twisted his helmet and dragged him down.

Dart’s helmet fell off the game and Turner appeared to put his hands on his own head, seeming to signal that he didn’t want to do what he did.

Alabama received a 15-yard penalty on the play and it helped the Rebels set up a score later in practice. However, Turner was not kicked out of the game, which some fans claimed.
