OXFORD, ma’am. – Quinshon Judkins, Zach Evans and Jason Dart all ran more than 100 yards as the Mississippi 9 rolled 448 on the ground in a 48-34 win over Auburn Saturday.

The Rebels had three 100-yard dashes in a game for the first time since 1976, and the second 7-0 since 1962 and the first since 2014.

Ole Miss (3-0 Southeast Conference) took a 21-0 lead and never trailed, although Auburn (3-4, 1-3) pulled close to 28-24 in the third quarter.

Judkins had 139 yards on 25 executions and scored in a 41-yard run with 6:26 left to build a final profit.

Dart finished 9/19 for 130 yards with three touchdown passes and ran 115 of 14 attempts. Evans has 136 yards after 21 hits and one touchdown.

Bigsby tank leads Auburn with 179 yards on 20 runs with touchdowns at 2 and 50 yards. The tigers jumped 301 yards, but made three turns.

Robby Ashford scored on 2 and 11 yards and finished 8/17 140-yard passes.

CARRIED AWAY

Auburn: The Tigers played well after being led 21-0 in the first 16 minutes. Ashford directed three consecutive goals in the second half.

After a week of rest, three of the next four opponents come to The Plains and the possibility of a post-season appearance remains.

Ole Miss: After six straight defeats to Auburn, which left many heartbroken, overcoming this hurdle is a priority.

What remains is a packed schedule: Three of the next four games are underway, with the only home game against Team 3 Alabama.

POSITION PAYING COSTS

Leading 31-24, Ole Miss successfully executes an inside kick with Jonathan Cruzrestored by Brandon Buckhaulter.

Seven innings later, Judkins surpassed his 54-yard record with a 4-yard touchdown, giving the rebels a 38-24 lead. Possessing a bonus attack proved to be huge in keeping Auburn at bay.

HINT POLL

Rebel Number 9 is not expected to decline, but a victory over an underrated opponent may not be enough to make significant progress.

NEXT

Auburn: The Tigers have an opening day before their home game against Arkansas on October 29. Will Harsin, currently 9-11th, still lead the Tigers until then?

Ole Miss: The rebels began their two-week journey at LSU on Saturday.
