Think about it. Just in the first three weeks, we've seen, not one, but two Hail Marys to win games (thanks, BYU). We've seen Stanford resurrect itself to win at No. 6 USC (fear the Tree). We've seen teams tank that were supposed to be good (see: Arkansas and Auburn). We've seen teams that weren't supposed to be all that be all that (see: Northwestern). We've even seen Leonard Fournette and Nick Chubb do their best Herschel Walker impersonations.
But nothing beats what we saw here Saturday night.
Ole Miss managed to beat No. 2 Alabama in Tuscaloosa for only the second time in history -- and for the second straight season -- in one of those games that featured more bizarre plays, close calls, no-calls, funky bounces and shifts in momentum than you usually see in a lifetime of watching football.
For much of this muggy, Alabama evening, the No. 15 Rebels were as lucky as they were good in hanging on to beat the Crimson Tide 43-37 at Bryant-Denny Stadium after twice building  20-point leads in the second half  only to see Alabama get the ball back twice and have chances to take the lead.
Not until Alabama quarterback Jake Coker's fourth-down pass sailed incomplete with nine seconds remaining in this four-hour marathon could Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze finally exhale.
"It's probably a surprise to a lot of people. I don't think it's a surprise to the people in our locker room," Freeze said of Ole Miss' second straight win over Alabama, the first time that's ever happened.
As the jubilant Ole Miss players were filing off the field, an Ole Miss fan beamed, "Two years in a row. The new normal."
But, hey, after what we saw in these zany 60 minutes of football -- and after what we've seen across the country these first three weeks -- what is normal?
And why not Ole Miss?
Sure, the Rebels won the turnover battle 5-0, and the first four turnovers they collected led directly to 23 points. There was also the ill-advised heave by quarterback Chad Kelly as he was being hit that was tipped up into the air and miraculously snagged by Quincy Adeboyejo for a 66-yard touchdown. Later in the game, the Rebels hit a 73-yard pop pass to Cody Core that was initially nullified because the officials ruled Kelly was across the line of scrimmage. But after a review, it was ruled a touchdown. That despite replays showing at least one Ole Miss offensive lineman 4 or 5 yards down the field.
The ball bounced Ole Miss' way more than once Saturday, but this is a team that's talented enough, mature enough and confident enough to take this win and  do something special with it.
And if they can handle their business the rest of the way, it will probably look like a masterpiece to the College Football Playoff selection committee when it's time to pick the four best teams.

"I feel like we were just better," said Ole Miss defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, who was dominant in stretches. "They're a great football team, really good. They're going to win a lot of games this year, but we've come from a place where now we can win these games, and we expect to win.
"We didn't just come here saying, 'Let's pick a fight.'  We came here saying, 'Let's handle our business and go home.'"
And it's easier to do that when you have a gunslinger for a quarterback and a guy who craves the stage. Kelly has that look about him. He was far from perfect and missed some throws he normally makes, but the guy is a fierce competitor and is absolutely fearless.
At halftime, Kelly had completed just six passes for 36 yards. He finished with 341 passing yards and three touchdowns and also rushed for a touchdown.
Of course, all you really need to know about Kelly's night is that his worst pass ended up being a touchdown.
"He's got some kind of factor," Freeze joked when asked if Kelly had the "it" factor. "I was frustrated with him some tonight. He was glued into one receiver on a lot of our combo routes, and I know we had open guys. He'll learn from that. He wants to know what he did wrong and is hungry to learn, but he can certainly make plays and proved that tonight against a really, really good defense.
"He's a gamer. He's got some 'it' factor to him, for sure."
Kelly was the first to admit that he got away with one on the touchdown pass to Adeboyejo. It was a pass Kelly never should have thrown.
"Right after that, I said, 'We're winning this.' That's how we all thought. We said, 'This is our game.'"
Alabama, which has now given up more than 40 points in its past two SEC games at home, has been down this road before. The Tide lost a year ago to Ole Miss but still wound up winning the SEC championship and making it to the playoff.
The Alabama players weren't conceding a whole lot after seeing so many things go against them.
"We feel like we gave them the game. They didn't beat us," Alabama cornerback Cyrus Jones said.
Perhaps so, but there are two ways to look at that. The ball bounced just right for Alabama in both 2011 and 2012 just to be in a position to get in the BCS National Championship Game after losing November games at home both years.
Somewhere along the way, championship seasons almost invariably include some good fortune. The Rebels are convinced they have the right stuff to win a championship.
"We're excited, but we're not done yet," Ole Miss running back Jordan Wilkins said. "This is just the start."
