OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Quarterback Jeremiah Masoli threw for three

42-35 on Saturday.
The Rebels took advantage of three Kentucky turnovers, scoring
on the ensuing drive each time on the way to a 28-17 halftime lead.
Ole Miss led 42-20 by early in the fourth quarter, but Kentucky
scored 15 unanswered points to pull within 42-35 with 1:34
remaining in the game.
Kentucky's ensuing onside kick attempt went out of bounds as Ole
Miss hung on for the win.
Kentucky's Derrick Locke caught eight passes for 108 yards and
rushed for 68 yards and two touchdowns. Ole Miss' Brandon Bolden
rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown.
