AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Jeff Scott ran for 164 yards and a touchdown and also scored on a 73-yard punt return, helping No. 25 Mississippi roll over reeling Texas 44-23 on Saturday night.
Bo Wallace passed for two touchdowns and ran another for the Rebels (3-0), who led 14-0 midway through the first quarter before Texas scored 23 straight points.
The Rebels rallied when Andrew Ritter kicked a 52-yard field goal on the last play of the first half and Wallace directed consecutive touchdown drives in the third quarter. Scott eluded six tacklers on a weaving, cross-field touchdown return that put the Rebels ahead 37-23 late in the third.
Texas, which gave up 550 yards rushing a week earlier in a loss to BYU, surrendered 274 on the ground to Ole Miss.
Case McCoy started at quarterback for Texas (1-2) in place of injured David Ash. McCoy passed for 196 yards and one touchdown.
