STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Little-used backup quarterback Chris
Relf accounted for three touchdowns, Anthony Dixon set the
Mississippi State single-season rushing record and the Bulldogs
upset No. 20 Mississippi 41-27 in the Egg Bowl on Saturday.
Ole Miss (8-4, 4-4 SEC) couldn't stop the one-two combination of
Relf and Anthony Dixon, who finished with 133 yards and a
touchdown. Dixon has 1,390 yards in 11 games, breaking James
Johnson's school record by seven yards.
The defense also came up with several big plays, including a
64-yard interception return for a touchdown by Corey Broomfield
that sealed the victory.
Charles Mitchell added two interceptions for the Bulldogs (5-7,
3-5), who won't go to a bowl this season but got the pleasure of
possibly knocking the Rebels (8-4, 4-4) out of second place in the
SEC's Western Division and a plum bowl assignment if LSU beats
Arkansas later Saturday.
