OXFORD, Miss. -- Quarterback Bo Wallace accounted for four touchdowns, including one receiving, as Mississippi snapped a 16-game Southeastern Conference losing streak with a 41-20 win against Auburn on Saturday.

The Rebels (4-3, 1-2) had not won an SEC game since a 42-35 home win against Kentucky in October 2010. Auburn (1-5, 0-4) has lost six consecutive SEC games and has been outscored 62-3 in the fourth quarter during the skid.

Wallace finished 17 of 22 for 226 yards, including the decisive touchdown, a 55-yard pass to Jeff Scott with 5:02 remaining to build an insurmountable 34-20 lead. He caught a 25-yard scoring pass from running back Randall Mackey and added scoring runs of 1 and 2 yards.

Auburn pulled within 24-20 on a 36-yard field goal by Cody Parkey with 4:56 left in the third quarter. The Tigers managed only one first down in their final five possessions.
