LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Jordan Ta'amu accounted for 528 yards of total offense and engineered a late game-winning drive to help Mississippi come back for a 37-33 win over Arkansas on Saturday night.

Scottie Phillips scored on a 5-yard touchdown run with 42 seconds remaining to complete the dramatic comeback for the Rebels (5-2, 1-2 Southeastern Conference), who put an end to a four-game losing streak to the Razorbacks.

Ta'amu completed 26 of 35 passes for 387 yards and a pair of touchdowns for Ole Miss. The senior also rushed 17 times for 141 yards and a score in helping the Rebels rally from down 17 points in the second quarter.

Phillips rushed 18 times for 86 yards and the game-winning score.

Ty Storey was 12-of-16 passing for 122 yards and a score and also rushed for 70 yards before leaving the game in the second half with an injury for Arkansas (1-6, 0-4). The Razorbacks have now lost six straight games after an opening victory under first-year coach Chad Morris.

Rakeem Boyd added 109 yards rushing on only seven carries before leaving the game with an injury in the second quarter for Arkansas.
