OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Jevan Snead hit Shay Hodge with touchdown passes of 64 and 15 yards and Mississippi beat Memphis 41-24 Saturday night in Houston Nutt's debut as Rebels coach.
Despite Snead's long touchdown to Hodge in the first quarter, the Rebels struggled early. Ole Miss got rolling with a 32-yard run around the right end for a touchdown and a 14-7 lead late in the first quarter.
It was the first time Ole Miss scored 40 points against a Football Bowl Subdivision opponent since a 43-40 win over South Carolina on Nov. 1, 2003.
Ole Miss capped off their scoring with a 10-yard run from freshman tailback Brandon Bolden. He debuted with 61 of his 76 yards rushing coming out of the team's new formation and hit Snead with a 37-yard pass out of the shotgun.
