OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi's Donte Moncrief has most of the attributes expected of an elite receiver, including a 6-foot-3, 226-pound frame, breakaway speed and a pair of hands that rarely lets him down when catching the football.
About the only thing missing is the ego.
So when Moncrief's season started slowly, the soft-spoken junior didn't complain. He knew quarterback Bo Wallace would find him.
Moncrief's time has come.
He had 149 yards receiving and a touchdown on Saturday as Ole Miss beat Arkansas 34-24. It's the third time in five games he's had at least 100 yards receiving.
Moncrief says the emergence of the team's other receivers -- including Laquon Treadwell and senior Ja-Mes Logan -- has forced opponents to use more single coverage against him.
Mississippi plays Troy on Saturday.
