Ole Miss falls at home to Vanderbilt 27-26

Posted: Updated:

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Jordan Rodgers hit Chris Boyd for a 26-yard touchdown pass with 52 seconds remaining and Vanderbilt rallied for a 27-26 victory over Mississippi on Saturday night.

The Commodores (6-4, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) are now bowl eligible for the second straight season for the first time in school history.

Vanderbilt trailed 23-6 early in the third quarter, but Rodgers found Jordan Matthews for a 52-yard touchdown minutes later to start the Commodores rally.

Rodgers completed 20 of 35 passes for 267 yards and two touchdowns. Matthews caught nine passes for 153 yards and a touchdown.

Ole Miss (5-5, 2-4) must beat either LSU or Mississippi State over the final two weeks to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2009. Bo Wallace threw for 403 yards and a touchdown. Bryson Rose kicked four field goals.

Vanderbilt has won six out of eight games against Ole Miss.
