    OXFORD, Miss. – All eyes were on Oxford Saturday night as the Ole Miss Rebels welcomed the Texas Longhorns for battle between the SEC and the Big 12. The Longhorns stole the show on this night, totaling nearly 700 yards of offense on their way to a 66-31 win at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
     
    David Ash was the motor to the Texas offense, propelling the Horns with 326 yards and four touchdowns through the air. Complementing Ash on the ground was Malcolm Brown, who ran his way to 128 yards and two scores while averaging 6.1 yards per carry.
     
    Bo Wallace had been the catalyst for the Ole Miss attack through the first two weeks of the season, leading the Rebels on the ground and through the air. The Texas defense keyed on the sophomore field general, however, and Wallace was limited to one touchdown and forced into three interceptions.
     
    Texas led 31-10 at the half, and scored 35 more points in the second half to put the game out of reach. The Longhorns finished with 676 yards of offense, while Ole Miss managed 399 yards as a team.
