OXFORD, MS (AP) - Brandon Bolden rushed for 136 yards and two touchdowns as Ole Miss beat Louisiana-Lafayette 43-21 on Saturday night.

Ole Miss quarterback Jeremiah Masoli left the game after suffering a concussion in the first quarter with the Rebels leading 24-7. His backup, sophomore Nathan Stanley, completed 6 of 14 passes for 108 yards, but let his running backs and kicker do most of the work.

Enrique Davis added 116 rushing yards as the Rebels gained 298 yards on the ground. Bryson Rose added a career-high five field goals. Ole Miss (4-5) snapped a three-game losing streak.

Louisiana-Lafayette (2-7) has lost five straight games and is 0-37 all-time against teams from the Southeastern Conference. Brad McGuire completed 7 of 21 passes for 139 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He also rushed for 42 yards and a touchdown.
