OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Dexter McCluster ran for a career-high 123
yards and Jevan Snead threw for a career-high 332, leading
Mississippi to a 30-17 victory over Arkansas on Saturday.
Rebels coach Houston Nutt beat his former team for the second
Ole Miss (5-2, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) jumped ahead 17-0
and controlled the line of scrimmage throughout. The Rebels could
have won by more if not for three turnovers.
Arkansas (3-4, 1-4) pulled to 24-17 in the third quarter when
Carlton Salters caught a tipped pass for a 58-yard touchdown, but
the Razorbacks couldn't finish the rally and Ole Miss added two
field goals in the fourth.
Nutt coached Arkansas for 10 seasons before leaving late in 2007. The Rebels immediately hired him.
