Ole Miss dominates Georgia 45-14

OXFORD, MISS– Ole Miss took Georgia to school with a domination of 45-14, holding Georgia back from the red zone until the third quarter. 

Ole Miss (2-2, 1-1 SEC) posted 510 yards of total offense against Georgia (3-1, 1-1 SEC) and forced two Bulldogs turnovers, as the Rebels scored their most points ever against UGA. The 31-point win was also the largest margin of victory over a top-25 team since the Rebels defeated No. 3 Tennessee in 1969.

Senior quarterback Chad Kelly led the Ole Miss offense with 18 of 24 passing for 282 yards and two touchdowns.

 

Wide receiver-turned-cornerback Derrick Jones picked off UGA quarterback Jacob Eason on third down and returned it 52 yards for a touchdown to give the Rebels an early 10-0 lead. The Rebel defense limited UGA to just 4 of 16 on third downs for the game and allowed Georgia to convert only one of its first 12 third-down attempts.

 

The Rebels continued the onslaught in the second half as they received the opening kickoff and marched 70 yards in seven plays. Backup quarterback Jason Pellerin tossed a shovel pass to running back Eugene Brazley, who went around the end and raced to the end zone from five yards out to put Ole Miss up 38-0 early in the third quarter.

Kelly broke free on a read option up the middle and raced 41 yards untouched for a touchdown that made is 45-0 with 8:34 left in the third period. The Bulldogs added two late touchdowns in the fourth quarter well after the game was decided.

The Rebels will conclude their four-game homestand with the Memphis Tigers Saturday. It is homecoming on the Ole Miss campus and kickoff is set for 6 p.m.
