Auburn Loses to Ole Miss

Auburn 200x120

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Jevan Snead threw two touchdown passes, Cordera Eason rushed for 104 yards and Mississippi capitalized on a
series of fourth-quarter mistakes by Auburn to beat the Tigers 17-7 on Saturday and move within a game of bowl eligibility.

With representatives of six bowls in attendance, Ole Miss converted Kodi Burns' second interception into a game-clinching touchdown late in the fourth quarter on a drive that was aided by three Auburn penalties.

It was third Southeastern Conference win for Ole Miss (5-4, 3-3 SEC) under first-year coach Houston Nutt, matching the total put up in three seasons under former coach Ed Orgeron. The win snapped a four-game losing streak to the Tigers (4-5, 2-4), who were 8-1 in Oxford coming into the game.
