Auburn 30, Ole Miss 22—Final

It wasn't all that pretty, but Auburn managed to build enough of a lead in the second half to hold on late, knocking off SEC West rival Ole Miss by a score of 30-22.

Fighting to get past the three-team blockade at the top of the SEC West, this was essentially an elimination game. Now, the Rebels already sit with two conference losses and will now essentially be playing for a bowl birth.

For the Tigers, they were led on offense by JUCO quarterback recruit Nick Marshall, who dazzled with his legs until he tweaked his right knee late in the game. He rushed 14 times for 143 yards and didn't even crack the century mark in passing yards.

Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace and wide receiver Donte Moncrief lit up the stat sheet and helped out-gain the Tigers on offense by plenty, but the Rebels had to settle for a field goal on three separate occasions, and that was ultimately the difference in the game. 

After only winning three games all of last season, Auburn now stands at 4-1 through five games and appears to be well on its way to reaching a bowl game.
