    Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall was not getting much done through the air, so he used his legs to help Auburn beat Ole Miss, 30-22 on Saturday night on the Plains.

    Marshall had only 93 passing yards, but he rushed 14 times for 140 yards and a pair of touchdowns to lead the Tigers.

    Ole Miss actually outgained Auburn in the game, 464-375, but it was Auburn that made the big plays, including a 78-yard interception return for a touchdown by Robenson Therezie.
