Ole Miss Dispatches Georgia Tech in Music City Bowl, Wins Sixth - WHLT 22 Connecting the Pine Belt

Ole Miss Dispatches Georgia Tech in Music City Bowl, Wins Sixth Straight Bowl Game

Posted: Updated:

Let's get right to the first quarter action, where Bo Wallace scampers in on the quarterback keeper for 17 yards on the Rebels first possession of the game. 7-0 Ole Miss. 

But Georgia Tech shows some resolve. The Yellow Jackets use 14 plays to drive it 59 yards - 8 of which come on a Robert Godhigh touchdown run. 7-7.

Let's move to the second frame now, where Wallace strikes again - this time through the air to Donte Moncrief for 28 yards and a score. That makes it 13-7 Ole Miss, because Georgia Tech blocks the extra point - its first blocked PAT since 1999.

The Rebels took that six-point lead into halftime, and they hang on to win this one 25-17 - a fitting way to end the season for the Rebels.

"It's big time," says Ole Miss senior left tackle Emmanuel McCray. "It's my senior year, my last collegiate game - great way to go out. I love this team, I love these coaches, I love the opportunity to play this game."

"It's always good to end the season on a good note, and like Coach [Hugh] Freeze said it's the end of Chapter Two, so we've just got to keep going forward and keep on playing football," says Ole Miss junior wide receiver Donte Moncrief.
