OXFORD, Miss. -- Quarterback Bo Wallace accounted for four touchdowns, including one receiving, as Mississippi snapped a 16-game Southeastern Conference losing streak with a 41-20 win against Auburn on Saturday.
The Rebels (4-3, 1-2) had not won an SEC game since a 42-35 home win against Kentucky in October 2010. Auburn (1-5, 0-4) has lost six consecutive SEC games and has been outscored 62-3 in the fourth quarter during that skid.
Wallace finished 17 of 22 for 226 yards, including the decisive touchdown, a 55-yard pass to Jeff Scott with 5:02 remaining to build an insurmountable 34-20 lead. He caught a 25-yard scoring pass from running back Randall Mackey and added scoring runs of 1 and 2 yards.
Auburn pulled within 24-20 on a 36-yard field goal by Cody Parkey with 4:56 left in the third quarter. The Tigers managed only one first down in their final five possessions.
Ole Miss finished with 451 yards of total offense, including 290 from Wallace. Jeff Scott rushed for 137 yards on 21 carries and added 70 yards on three receptions.
Mike Marry led the Rebels defenders with six tackles, a sack and an interception in the final four minutes that set up Wallace's final touchdown run with 3:26 left. Auburn linebacker Darren Bates led all tacklers with 16, including two for a loss.
Auburn finished with 213 total yards, but managed only 60 in the second half. Tre Mason led the Tigers with 82 rushing yards and first half scoring runs of 1 and 6 yards. Parkey had field goals of 46 and 31 yards.
Clint Moseley was 11 of 18 for 112 yards, but struggled in the second half, connecting on 3 of 10 for 22 yards.
Three of Auburn's four SEC losses -- Arkansas, Mississippi State, Ole Miss -- have been by a combined 56 points. The win by the Rebels snapped a three-game series losing streak.
