FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas forced quarterback Matt Corral to throw six interceptions as the Razorbacks scored 24 points off seven turnovers in a 33-21 win over Mississippi on Saturday.

Three first-half Rebels' giveaways helped provide Arkansas (2-2, 2-2) a 20-0 halftime lead. It was the Razorbacks' largest halftime advantage in an Southeastern Conference game since 2016, their last winning season.

Corral entered the game second in the league in yards passing and had thrown just one interception through three games for Ole Miss (1-3, 1-3). He threw two touchdown passes against the Razorbacks but had a season-low 200 yards in addition to his six picks.

Linebacker Grant Morgan took Corral's fifth interception 23 yards to the end zone for the game's final score with 3:07 remaining. Hudson Clark's third interception on Ole Miss' ensuing drive sealed the game.

Feleipe Franks was 21-of 34 passing for 244 yards with a touchdown and an interception for Arkansas.

Jerrion Ealy ran for 112 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries for the Rebels.

 

THE TAKEAWAY

Arkansas has won two SEC games for the first time since 2016.

Ole Miss sits at the bottom of the SEC West and has given up the most points in the conference.

 

UP NEXT

Arkansas has a bye next week before playing on Halloween at No. 11 Texas A&M for the first time since 2012. The teams had played their head-to-head games at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, since.

Ole Miss returns home on Saturday to face No. 15 Auburn.
