Story from Ole Miss Athletics:
– For the first time in Ole Miss’ 129 seasons of college football, the Rebels won 11 games, capping off the season with a 38-25 victory over No. 10 Penn State in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl on Saturday afternoon inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The Ole Miss (11-2) offense picked apart the nation’s top defense, recording the most points (38), passing yards (394) and total yards (540) Penn State (10-3) has allowed this season. Those 540 yards marked the second straight bowl game for Ole Miss with at least 500 yards of total offense, again displaying head coach Lane Kiffin‘s offensive prowess in his second New Year’s Six appearance at the helm for the Rebels.

Junior quarterback Jaxson Dart led the Rebel assault, ending the day with 393 total yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions. The Rebel duo of wide receiver Tre Harris and tight end offensive MVP Caden Prieskorn helped him out greatly, combining for 270 yards and two touchdowns on the day – with Prieskorn ending with an Ole Miss bowl record 10 receptions, and both Prieskorn (136) and Harris (134) falling just shy of the Rebel bowl record of 137 receiving yards.

On the ground, sophomore running back Quinshon Judkins was excellent again, ending with 120 all-purpose yards and one touchdown, including 106 yards on the ground – only the second 100-yard game allowed by the Penn State defense this season. Judkins concludes his sophomore campaign third on the Ole Miss career rushing list at 2,725 yards through two highly productive seasons.
