Ole Miss dominates Georgia


After giving up leads of 21 and 22 points in their first 3 games this season, the 23rd ranked Ole Miss Rebels are headed in the wrong direction.

With 3-and-0 Georgia in Oxford, it looks like they've fixed the flaws.

The Rebels scored the first 45 points of the game, as Ole Miss dominated Georgia 45-14 Saturday afternoon in front of 65,843 fans at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

Ole Miss (2-2, 1-1 SEC) posted 510 yards of total offense against Georgia (3-1, 1-1 SEC) and forced two Bulldogs turnovers, as the Rebels scored their most points ever against UGA. The 31-point win was also the largest margin of victory over a top-25 team since the Rebels defeated No. 3 Tennessee in 1969.

Senior quarterback Chad Kelly paced the Ole Miss offense with an efficient 18 of 24 passing for 282 yards and pair of touchdowns. He also added 53 yards and a touchdown on the ground and passed Rebel legend Archie Manning for sixth place in school history with 5,901 yards of total offense. Kelly hit eight different receivers including tight end Evan Engram, who posted six catches for 95 yards and a score.

The Rebels will conclude their four-game homestand with the Memphis Tigers Saturday. It is homecoming on the Ole Miss campus and kickoff is set for 6 p.m.
