Defense dominates as Ole Miss routs Tennessee

Oxford, MS ( – Bo Wallace threw two touchdown passes, but
it was the defense of No. 3 Ole Miss that propelled the Rebels to a convincing
34-3 win over Tennessee at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

Wallace matched a season-low with 13 completions for 199 yards as Ole Miss
(7-0, 4-0 SEC) remained unbeaten thanks to a tremendous defensive effort
against the overmatched Volunteers. Tennessee turned the ball over four times
and converted just 3-for-16 chances on third down.

Tennessee quarterback Justin Worley was intercepted three times, including two
by SEC leader Senquez Golson. Golson’s sixth and seventh interceptions on the
season lifted him to second in the nation behind Louisville’s Gerod Holliman.

Jaylen Walton ran for 60 yards and a touchdown for Ole Miss, which got
receiving scores from Vince Sanders and Evan Engram.

Tennessee (3-4, 0-3) has dropped four of its last five games, with the lone
win coming against Chattanooga, an FCS program.
