Shea Patterson accounts for 5 TDs as Ole Miss beats Vanderbilt

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Shea Patterson threw for 351 yards and four touchdowns and Mississippi beat Vanderbilt 57-35 on Saturday.

Ole Miss (3-3, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) snapped its three-game losing streak while Vanderbilt (3-4, 0-4) has now lost four straight.

Vanderbilt led 14-7 in the second quarter after Ralph Webb ran for two touchdowns, but Ole Miss responded with 28 straight points in less than seven minutes. The offensive avalanche was helped by two Vanderbilt turnovers that gave the Rebels excellent field position.

Ole Miss kept the momentum early in the third quarter, earning a safety after forcing Vanderbilt quarterback Kyle Shurmur to fumble into the end zone. Less than a minute later, Patterson hit A.J. Brown for a 29-yard touchdown pass and a 44-21 lead and the game was no longer in doubt.

Brown caught eight passes for 174 yards and two touchdowns. DaMarkus Lodge also caught two touchdown passes.

Shurmur threw for 174 yards, two touchdowns and one interception for the Commodores. Webb ran for 163 yards and two touchdowns.

THE TAKEAWAY

Ole Miss: It's a much-needed win for the Rebels, who were embarrassed while giving up a combined 110 points in back-to-back losses to Alabama and Auburn. The Ole Miss passing game was very good on Saturday, but the real surprise was a solid running game, led by 113 yards on the ground from Jordan Wilkins. The defense - led by a huge game from defensive end Marquis Haynes - put a ton of pressure on Shurmur.

Vanderbilt: It's been a prolonged collapse for the Commodores, which had high hopes for their season after beating Kansas State on Sept. 16 to move to 3-0. The defense was porous again in the program's fourth loss in a row. Vanderbilt has given up 199 points - or nearly 50 per game - during the losing streak.

UP NEXT

Ole Miss hosts LSU next Saturday.

Vanderbilt has a week off before travelling to face South Carolina on Oct. 28.
