CAPTAINS
(All Seniors): Randall Mackey (RB), Mike Marry (LB) and Bryson Rose (K)

FIRST-TIME STARTER (1)
Defense: Gilbert Pena (NT)

GENERAL NOTES
• Tonight’s attendance was 61,797, the fourth-largest in school history and the largest since the school-record 62,657 fans at the 2009 Alabama game. It was also the
largest attendance ever for a non-conference game in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

• Ole Miss has scored its most points through the first three games of the season (108) since 2003 (117).

• Ole Miss lost the coin toss for the first time this year.

OFFENSIVE NOTES
• Sophomore WR Donte Moncrief posted a career high with 144 receiving yards in the game, on seven catches.
• Moncrief recorded a touchdown catch for the third straight game, the first Ole Miss receiver to do that since Mike Wallace finished the 2008 season logging four
straight games with a TD catch.
• Sophomore QB Bo Wallace and Moncrief connected on a 75-yard touchdown pass play, which was a career long for both players. It was the duo’s third straight game
with a scoring pass of 50+yards.
• Junior RB Jeff Scott scored on a 48-yard rushing TD, the longest scoring run by a Rebel since Scott’s own 69-yard run against Fresno State last year.
• Senior RB Randall Mackey scored his first touchdown of the year with his second-quarter 3-yard run. He had one rushing touchdown last year as the Rebels’ QB.
• Freshman RB Jaylen Walton has now scored a touchdown in each of his first three college games (one rushing, one receiving, one return).

DEFENSIVE NOTES
• With Texas’ 66 points, Ole Miss allowed the most points in a game in its modern history (since 1933) and the most since giving up 69 to Sewanee in 1917.
• Junior DB Charles Sawyer posted a career high with 12 tackles, his fourth career game with double-digit tackles.

SPECIAL TEAMS NOTES

school history.
• Senior K Bryson Rose connected on his first field goal of the year with a 39-yarder in the second quarter. With the make, he moves into sole possession of eighth place
on the school’s all-time list with 26 career FGs made.
