Fourth Quarter

Ole Miss 27, Auburn 19 (10:13): Laquan Treadwell caught a 21-yard touchdown pass with a defender on his back to give the Rebels a little cushion. Ole Miss needed less than two minutes to go 75 yards.

Ole Miss 20, Auburn 19 (12:00): Linebacker Kris Frost came up with an interception for a second straight week, and Jeremy Johnson hit Tony Stevens for a 44-yard pass down to the 3-yard line to make it a one point game. Daniel Carlson hit a fourth field goal to make it 20-19.

Ole Miss 20, Auburn 16 (14:34): Auburn had a 12-yard touchdown from Sean White to Marcus Davis called back on a holding call, and had to settle for Daniel Carlson's 33-yard field goal, his third of the game. White set up the score with a 46-yard throw to Ricardo Louis down Auburn's sideline.

Third Quarter

Ole Miss 20, Auburn 13 (1:52): Ole Miss went 75-yards in four plays to take a 20-13 lead. Chad Kelly hit his first deep throw of the game, a 45-yard touchdown to Derrick Jones, to cap off the drive. Jones broke a pair of tackles inside the 5-yard line to walk into the end zone.

Auburn 13, Ole Miss 13 (3:46): Auburn forced a turnover on downs inside it's own 10-yard line, and went down the field to tie the game up. Sean White hit Melvin Ray for 44-yards, and Jovon Robinson gained key yardage to get the Tigers inside the 15-yard line. Daniel Carlson hit from 23-yards out to tie the game.

Ole Miss 13, Auburn 10 (12:20): Ole Miss kicker Gary Wunderlich's second field goal, a 37-yarder, gave the Rebels a 13-10 lead. Laquon Treadwell completed a 21-yard pass on the drive, and caught a pass for 10 yards to get Ole Miss into the red zone.

Second Quarter

Auburn 10, Ole Miss 10 (3:59): Auburn failed on a fourth down conversion at midfield to give Ole Miss a short field. The Rebels went 49 yards in six plays to tie it up 10-10 on a 25-yard touchdown run from Akeem Judd. The key play on the drive was a 7-yard pass from Chad Kelly to tight end Evan Engram to convert on a fourth-and-two.

Auburn 10, Ole Miss 3 (14:11): Auburn started the second quarter off with a bang. Sean White hit Ricardo Louis for his first career touchdown, a 47-yard pass that gave the Tigers the first lead of the game. The defense forced a second straight three-and-out to give Auburn some momentum.

First Quarter

Auburn 3, Ole Miss 3 (3:52): Auburn kicker Daniel Carlson hit his fourth field goal from 50-plus yards to tie the game. After quarterback Sean White threw his first interception in four games, the defense forced Ole Miss to punt. Cassanova McKinzy and Carl Lawson teamed up for a sack on third down. A short punt gave Auburn a short field. The offense didn't even need a first down to get Carlson in range.

Ole Miss 3, Auburn 0 (8:30): Ole Miss jumped out in front with a 27-yard field goal. It had a lengthy drive stall at Auburn's 9-yard line thanks to a nice tackle by Blake Countess. Countess stopped running back Akeem Judd on a third-and-two for a yard loss to force the Rebels to settle for the field goal try.

PREGAME Notes

Sean White and Carl Lawson are in the starting lineup. Auburn announced its projected starters on the video board at Jordan-Hare Stadium, and both players names drew cheers from the crowd. Other notable changes for Auburn's starting lineup includes Rudy Ford at nickel, Chandler Cox at fullback and Tre Williams in for Kris Frost at linebacker.

Auburn previously announced Sean White and Carl Lawson were both game-time decisions. The Tigers said White has been dealing with an undisclosed injury since last week's loss to Arkansas.
