Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

The Alabama offensive line still leaves something to be desired, and the Tide offense is an abomination on passing downs, but the defense kept forcing Ole Miss into second- or third-and-long, and combined with some fourth-down stops and just enough offense, the result was a healthy win over a good team.
