OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Jevan Snead threw for 213 yards and four touchdowns, No. 25 Mississippi set a school record with minus-51 yards rushing allowed and the Rebels beat Mississippi State 45-0 on Friday in the most lopsided Egg Bowl in 37 years.
The Rebels (8-4, 5-3 Southeastern Conference), spurred by an opportunity to play in a top-tier bowl, scored 2:20 seconds in, led 24-0 after the first quarter and dominated the fading Bulldogs (4-8, 2-6) in every phase. The margin of victory was the largest in the series since Ole Miss beat Mississippi State 48-0 in 1971.
Snead completed his first nine passes for 117 yards and touchdowns of 10 yards to Shay Hodge and 17 yards to Mike Wallace.
