Ahmaad Galloway ran for 126 yards and two touchdowns to lift Alabama to a 28-15 victory over Southern Mississippi on Thursday night in a rain-soaked game. The victory made the Crimson Tide (6-5) eligible for a bowl game, likely the Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tenn. The Golden Eagles (6-4) are expected to receive a bid to the GMAC Bowl in Mobile. Played in windy, rainy conditions, the game included six first-half turnovers, a safety, three botched extra-point kicks and three missed field goals. Both teams were playing without their starting tailbacks. It had little effect on Alabama, particularly in the second half. Galloway scored on a 40-yard run in the third quarter and added a clinching 11-yarder with 10:33 left in the fourth. He also held onto the ball, running 24 times without a fumble in his second straight 100-yard effort. Santonio Beard, who gained 199 yards in his lone start against Auburn, was suspended following his arrest last weekend on drunken driving charges. The Tide still rushed for 221 yards, including 148 in the second half against a defense that came in giving up just 86 per game on the ground. Alabama's Andrew Zow, making his second start of the season, threw his 34th and 35th touchdown passes to tie Mike Shula for the school's career mark. Zow was just 7-of-19 for 90 yards with an interception, but rushed for a career-high 47 yards and converted a pair of third-and-long plays with his legs.
