Mississippi beats Idaho 59-14

Associated Press

OXFORD, Miss. -- Bo Wallace threw for 186 yards and two touchdowns, I'Tavius Mathers rushed for 138 yards and another touchdown and Mississippi rolled to a 59-14 win over Idaho on Saturday.

Wallace threw both of his touchdown passes on long completions to Ja-Mes Logan, who finished with six receptions for 122 yards. Ole Miss (5-3) won its second straight game, finishing with 569 total yards.

Idaho (1-7) lost its third straight game. Taylor Davis completed 12 of 30 passes for 166 yards and one touchdown. Dezmon Epps caught five passes for 89 yards and a touchdown.

Ole Miss led 17-0 after one quarter, 24-7 at halftime and erased any remaining doubt with 21 points in the third quarter.

Jaylen Walton added 86 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Backup quarterback Barry Brunetti completed 7 of 7 passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns.

It was an easy victory for the Rebels, who needed one after a brutal month of games that included losses to Alabama, Auburn and Texas A&M, as well as last week's upset victory over LSU.

The Rebels took a 14-0 lead in less than seven minutes. The first touchdown was a perfectly placed 37-yard throw from Wallace to Logan while the second was a 40-yard run by Walton.

Idaho came into the game as a 41-point underdog and had already been blown out by programs like North Texas and Wyoming. Even worse, the Vandals started Davis, their third string quarterback, on Saturday because of injuries to Chad Chalich and Joshua McCain.

But they stayed competitive in the first half and put together a 75-yard drive -- capped by a 2-yard TD run by Davis -- to pull within 17-7 early in the second quarter.

Ole Miss led 24-7 at halftime and quickly added to the advantage with a 65-yard heave from Wallace to Logan to make it 31-7 with 9:26 left in the third quarter.

The Rebels won without despite missing several key starters, including running back Jeff Scott (thigh bruise), linebacker Serderius Bryant (concussion) and defensive end Robert Nkemdiche (hamstring).

The Rebels now have a week to rest before a Nov. 9 game against Arkansas in Oxford. A win would give Ole Miss bowl eligibility for the second straight season.
