The Ole Miss Rebels did what they had to do on Saturday, beating the Arkansas Razorbacks 34-24 in Oxford. Bo Wallace threw for over 400 yards and three touchdowns to pace Ole Miss.
Arkansas actually got on the board first by way of a Zach Hocker field goal less than three minutes into the game. However, that lead wouldn't last as the Rebels took a 10-3 lead by the end of the quarter on a Barry Brunetti touchdown run. Brandon Allen hit Hunter Henry for a 17 yard touchdown pass in the second quarter to bring the Hogs back within 13-10, but Wallace connected with Laquon Treadwell for a touchdown with less than a minute remaining in the first half to make it 20-10.
The Razorbacks wouldn't go down without a fight, but they still went down. Kiero Small scored from one yard out to open the second half scoring, but Wallace threw touchdown passes to Ja-Mes Logan and Donte Moncrief in the third quarter to put the game on ice for Ole Miss.
With six wins now in the books, the Rebels are now bowl eligible.
Box Score Hero:
Wallace did throw two interceptions, but he was 26-33 for 407 yards and the three touchdowns tend to overshadow the mistakes. Moncrief had 149 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions, as well.
Neither team was ranked entering the game, and Ole Miss will still be on the outside looking in after the win.
But Did They Cover?
Ole Miss was a 17 point favorite at kickoff, so they did not cover the spread.
