4:16 p.m. CT: And just like that, on the Rebels' second play, Snead throws an interception to Carlos Thomas, sealing the victory for South Carolina, its first over Ole Miss in six tries, the last Gamecock win coming in 1979.

4:13 p.m. CT: Ashlee Palmer stuffs South Carolina on a 4th-and-inches, giving the Rebels a final chance with 1:21 left on the clock. The play is reviewed and confirmed as called. OM takes over at their own 35.

4:03 p.m. CT: Joshua Shene knocks a 37-yard field goal through the uprights to close the gap to 7 at 31-24. The Rebels' drive, however, takes 14 plays and lasts a long 4 minutes and 43 seconds.

3:48 p.m. CT: A 95-yard, 4:39-minute-long drive results in a South Carolina TD. Smelley tossed a 4-yard pass to Joe Hills in the endzone to give SC a 10-point lead.

3:33 p.m. CT: End of third quarter. Ole Miss trails after three for just the second time this season (Wake Forest). Also, Ole Miss' 311 yards of offense is already the most surrendered by South Carolina this year.

3:28 p.m. CT: South Carolina turns the Rebel turnover into 7 points, capped by a 6-yard TD toss from Smelley to Barnes on a fade route in the corner of the endzone. Barnes, a freshman, has 7 catches for 76 yards and 2 scores. SC 24, OM 21.

3:17 p.m. CT: The Rebels move the ball down inside the 20, but McCluster fumbles after a catch and after review confirms, South Carolina takes over in Ole Miss territory.

3:16 p.m. CT: Check out photos from the first half, including a shot of today's crowd, by clicking the photo gallery link above the blog. More photos to be added.

3:13 p.m. CT: McCluster makes a highlight-reel play, catching a short pass on the left and bouncing around and juking players all the way to the right side of the field, where he runs up the sideline for a 36-yard connection. Shades of former Rebel Mico McSwain on the play.

3:10 p.m. CT: Today's attendance: 54,628

3:08 p.m. CT: Smelley tries to squeeze a pass through the Rebel defense, but Lamar Brumfield picks it off for the junior's first career interception.

3:05 p.m. CT: South Carolina makes a first down after review, which says the receiver, Barnes, held on to the ball on the sidelines.

2:56 p.m. CT: Eventful kickoff of the second half. SC's Culliver brings it out to the 9 and is stripped by Derrick Herman, but the Gamecocks recover. SC has a block in the back, but Ole Miss is called for a personal foul, so the drive starts at the 22.

2:48 p.m. CT: A note for RebelVision viewers: Coach Nutt's press conference will be Sunday this week, not Monday. RebelVision subscribers can watch the press conference live at 2 p.m. on Sunday.

2:38 p.m. CT: HALFTIME NUMBERS: Jevan Snead is 12-for-15 with 154 yards and a TD. McCluster has 7 rushes for 38 yareds and a TD and 3 catches for 52 yards. South Carolina has 168 yards on only seven completions, an average of 24.0 per catch. The Gamecocks have 29 yards rushing, while the Rebels have 78. Ole Miss leads in first downs 12-7. Ole Miss is 6-of-8 on third downs, while SC is 3-of-7. 

2:29 p.m. CT: South Carolina's super-sized linebackers are making life difficult up the middle for Ole Miss. Eric Norwood weighs in at 270 and his 'backer mate Jasper Brinkley tilts the scales at 275. Their weight does not seem to slow them down, though. 

2:26 p.m. CT: After moving swiftly down the field on some big passing plays, the Gamecocks stall around the 25 and Succop misses the field goal attempt wide right. 

2:21 p.m. CT: Ole Miss is certainly putting on an impressive show of offense. The SC defense entered the day with the nation's top defense, giving up just 221.4 yards per contest. The Rebels have already racked up 224 yards and 21 points with more than 5 minutes left in the first half.

2:18 p.m. CT: Rebels use a couple of big pass plays to pull ahead. Snead bootlegs to the right then throws back to the left to a wide open Brandon Bolden out of the backfield for a 24-yard TD connection.  

2:08 p.m. CT: The game has slowed considerably after a frenetic pace through the first quarter-and-a-half. Both teams have punted on their last possession. 

1:55 p.m. CT: Snead fumbles inside Rebel territory and 292-pound tackle Nathan Pepper scoops and scores from 29 yards out to put the Gamecocks ahead for the first time today. The play was confirmed after review.

1:49 p.m. CT: Smelley comes right back after an SC timeout and completes a 20-yard TD pass to freshman receiver Jason Barnes, who holds on despite a huge hit by Ingram. After the PAT, Ole Miss 14, South Carolina 10. 

1:45 p.m. CT: On second down, Ashlee Palmer sacks Smelley for a big loss. It was the Rebels' second sack of the game and Palmer's first career solo sack. Fon Ingram also had his first career sack earlier. 

1:42 p.m. CT: Chris Smelley hooks up with TE Jared Cook for a 63-yard pass, catch and run. Cook happens to be the younger brother of Rebel team captain and starting fullback Jason Cook. 

1:35 p.m. CT: McCluster darts through the middle of the Gamecock defense for a five-yard touchdown run out of the "Wild Rebel" on third down. McCluster notches his third TD run of the year  

1:30 p.m. CT: Houston Nutt and Kent Austin continue to employ the "Wild Rebel" formation with Dexter McCluster already having taken several snaps from center. The junior all-purpose threat has three carries for 24 yards from the formation so far.

1:23 p.m. CT: SC's Ryan Succop nails a 48-yard field goal to make it 7-3. Both teams score points on their first drive. Will it be a high-scoring affair on a beautiful sunny afternoon at Vaught-Hemingway? 

1:07 p.m. CT: Cordera Eason runs into the endzone untouched for an 8-yard TD to cap an impressive first drive for the Rebels. Ole Miss scores first for the fifth time in six games this season. They are 3-1 when scoring first entering today.  

12:59 p.m. CT: Ole Miss won the toss and will receive the first kickoff of the game. Rebels come out wearing navy blue jerseys. Country music duo Montgomery Gentry led the crowd in "Hotty Toddy" prior to kickoff.
