LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Matt Corral hit Elijah Moore with a 3-yard touchdown pass in overtime and Luke Logan’s extra point pushed Mississippi past Kentucky 42-41 on Saturday.
Chris Rodriguez’s 1-yard run with 2:04 remaining eventually forced OT and Terry Wilson’s 10-yard scoring TD gave Kentucky the initial lead.
But Matt Ruffolo missed the extra point, opening the door for the Rebels to rally again for the win after overcoming a 28-14 hole.
Five-yard runs by Corral and John Rhys Plumlee were followed by defensive pass interference penalty on Kentucky’s Kelvin Joseph in the end zone.
Corral hit Moore two plays later and Logan easily converted the PAT to give Lane Kiffin his first win with the Rebels and spark a wild celebration.
