Alabama football got off to a fast start Saturday night. After Southern Miss won the coin toss and elected to defer to the second half, wide receiver Jameson Williams ran the opening kickoff back 100 yards for a touchdown just 14 seconds into the game.

In the fourth, Williams would do it again, this time from 83 yards out.

Williams would add an 81-yard receiving touchdown in the second quarter. He joined Alabama this offseason following his transfer from Ohio State. He's settled into a starting role on both offense and special teams for the Crimson Tide.
