Tennessee reached the Ole Miss 36-yard line but Arian Foster
was stopped on fourth-and-one, and the Rebels took over on downs.
Spurred by the stop, Ole Miss drove 64 yards in 11 plays to score its only touchdown of the day. The big gains were completions of 23 yards to Mike Espy, 14 yards to Taye Biddle and 16 yards to Biddle. Mico McSwain got the TD on a two-yard end sweep, narrowing the gap to 20-10 with 10:18 left to play
Tennessee marched from its 20 to the Ole Miss 21 on the ensuing possession only to see Clausen stopped short on a fourth-and-two bootleg.
Parys Haralson shook the ball loose from Spurlock on the Rebels' first snap and Antwan Stewart recovered at the Ole Miss 13-yard line. Arian Foster got the touchdown five plays later on a one-yard dive, boosting the lead to 27-10 with 2:02 remaining.
A 56-yard run by McSwain and a 12-yard scramble by Spurlock got Ole Miss to the Vol 1-yard line. Jason Allen tipped Spurlock's pass over the middle, however, and teammate Corey Campbell intercepted in the end zone with two seconds remaining.
