OXFORD, Miss. (AP) _ Verron Haynes conjured up memories of the good ol' days at Georgia, when Vince Dooley was calling plays and the Bulldogs were running wild. Haynes rushed for a career-high 192 yards and two touchdowns in his first start at tailback as No. 23 Georgia grounded its pass-happy offense and ran over Mississippi 35-15 on Saturday. ``I would not have believed it coming in,'' said Haynes, who has been starting at fullback. ``It was like the old Herschel Walker days.'' The Bulldogs (6-3, 5-3 Southeastern Conference) beat the Rebels (6-3, 3-3) for the fifth straight time. The anticipated shootout between quarterbacks David Greene of Georgia and Eli Manning of Ole Miss never developed. Manning was 35-for-47 for 233 yards and two touchdowns, but was relegated to mostly short tosses. ``We were able to complete the ball, but we couldn't really get downfield like we wanted to,'' Manning said. His third interception of the season was run back 82 yards for a touchdown by Jermaine Phillips early in the fourth quarter. Greene was 8-for-14 for 93 yards and a touchdown and didn't mind having a light work day. ''``I can't tell you how great it is to have the pressure off, when you can just turn around and hand it off,'' he said. Georgia, without injured leading rusher Musa Smith, ran for a season-high 268 yards. The Bulldogs have been airing it out this season for over 300 yards a game with a mediocre running game that ranks in the lower half of the SEC. Haynes, a senior, entered the game with 170 yards rushing this season and just 216 in two seasons at Georgia. But he said he approached coach Mark Richt on Monday an offered his services at tailback. ``He's the most reliable guy we have and he can play any formation, so we made the decision to go with him,'' Richt said. Haynes is the seventh player to rush for over 100 yards in a game this season against Ole Miss. The Rebels allowed three players to gain over 100 rushing in its last game, a 58-56 seven-overtime loss to Arkansas. ``I expect every team to run the ball against us,'' Rebels linebacker Eddie Strong said. ``We're small. Until we stop it, they're going to keep running it.'' After trailing 9-7 at halftime, Georgia scored on its first four possessions of the second half to take a 35-9 edge midway through the fourth quarter.
