Josey, Tigers Move to 10-1 With 24-10 Win Over #24 Ole Miss

Henry Josey ran for 95 yards and two touchdowns to help No. 8 Missouri move one win away from an SEC East title with a 24-10 decision over 24th-ranked Ole Miss at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. James Franklin, back from a three-game absence caused by a shoulder injury, threw for 142 yards with an interception on a 12-of-19 completion rate, but the Tigers' ground game and defense played the biggest roles in Missouri's third triumph over a ranked conference opponent this season. Missouri (10-1, 6-1 SEC) rushed for 260 yards, with Marcus Murphy adding 67 and a touchdown on 16 carries, and thwarted a number of scoring chances by the inefficient Rebels throughout the contest. The Tigers will clinch a spot opposite the Alabama/Auburn winner in the SEC Championship Game if they defeat visiting Texas A&M next Saturday. Should the Aggies prevail, South Carolina would claim the East by virtue of its earlier win over Missouri. Bo Wallace went 26-of-42 for 244 yards with an interception for Ole Miss (7-4, 3-4), which had a three- game win streak halted. Donte Moncrief finished with 115 yards on six catches in the loss.
