After Auburn scored 17 straight second quarter points, Ole Miss outscored Auburn 27-3 to run away with a 41-20 victory at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on Saturday. Tre Mason rushed for two touchdowns and 82 yards on 18 carries for the Tigers while Clint Moseley threw for 118 yards on 11-of-18 passing.
"We went down 14 points and had 17 unanswered points, which is good for our football team," said Auburn head coach Gene Chizik. "We kept it a seven point ballgame in the fourth quarter and couldn't close it in the fourth quarter. The bright spot was coming down from 14 points and taking the lead. We have a lot of improvement to go. It comes down to execution in the fourth quarter."
Ole Miss (4-3, 1-2) opened the game's scoring on a toss sweep to running back Randall Mackey, who threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to quarterback Bo Wallace down the left sideline with 7:14 left in the first quarter.
On Auburn's next possession from its own 28, backup center Tunde Fariyike, who was filling in for injured starter Reese Dismukes, snapped the ball over Moseley's head and C.J. Johnson recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown and a 14-0 Ole Miss lead less than two minutes later.
Auburn (1-5. 0-4) bounced right back and drove 74 yards in 13 plays and 6:43 as it cut the lead in half on a Mason 1- yard touchdown run just over a minute into the second quarter. That marked the Tigers' longest scoring drive of the season in plays and time of possession.
Auburn's defense continued to hold Ole Miss after the Rebels' opening drive as the Tigers took over on the Ole Miss 48. Two plays later, Auburn tied it 14-14. On first down, it was a Leroy High to Leroy High connection as Moseley completed a 42-yard pass to Sammie Coates to the Ole Miss 6. Mason then ran in up the middle on the next play for a touchdown with 5:56 left in the half.
Cody Parkey then recovered his own onside kick at the Auburn 47 as Auburn continued to roll. That led to a career long-tying 46-yard field goal by Parkey as the Tigers took a 17-14 lead, their first of the day, with a minute remaining in the half.
However, the Rebels outscored the Tigers 27-3 the rest of the way.
Ole Miss drove down the field quickly and tied it on the last play of the half on a 28-yard field goal by Bryson Rose that ended Auburn's run of 17 consecutive points.
Ole Miss had the ball to open the second half and Wallace completed a 45-yard pass to Ja-Mes Logan in triple coverage to the Auburn 1. That set up a Wallace touchdown run on the next play only 67 seconds into the second half as Ole Miss regained the lead 24-17 as the Rebels scored 10 points in a 2:07 span.
Auburn came back as Mason's 26-yard run to the Ole Miss 15 to set up Parkey's second field goal of the day, a 31-yarder that closed Auburn to within 24-20 with 4:38 to go in the third. Ole Miss answered with a 39-yard field goal by Rose to give the Rebels a 27-20 lead with 13:28 left in the game.
Ole Miss sealed the game with five minutes left on a 55-yard touchdown pass from Wallace to Jeff Scott to give the Rebels a 34-20 lead. On the play, Auburn's Ashton Richardson tackled Jeff Scott at the Auburn 42 but just like Michael Dyer in the BCS National Championship Game, Scott rolled off and was not down and ran it in for the touchdown.
The Rebels added on after intercepting a Moseley pass and took a 41-20 lead on 2-yard Wallace run, his second of the day, with 3:26 left.
Daren Bates recorded a career-high 16 tackles for his 10th double-digit tackle performance of his career, including the fourth this season, and the seventh in the last 10 games dating back to last year.
Scott led Ole Miss with a game-high 137 yards rushing on 21 carries while Wallace rushed for 39 yards and two touchdowns while throwing for 226 yards and one touchdown on 17-of-22 passing.
Auburn plays its second-straight road game at Vanderbilt next Saturday at 11:21 am CT on the SEC Network.
