LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Andre' Woodson threw three touchdown
passes -- two to Dicky Lyons Jr. -- and Kentucky beat Mississippi
31-14 on Saturday for its first win in an SEC opener in 19 years.
The Wildcats (2-1) also got a big game from defensive tackle
Myron Pryor, who intercepted a pass, recovered a fumble and forced
Mississippi (1-2) scored first after Rafael Little fumbled and
the Rebels took over near midfield. Quarterback Brent Schaeffer
then connected with Marshay Green in the flat, and the Green eluded
several defenders on his way to a 47-yard touchdown.
The Wildcats responded, thanks to Lyons. He caught a 33-yard
pass from Woodson to put Kentucky into scoring position, and then
the two hooked up a 26-yard slant a few plays later.
Lyons struck again on Kentucky's next possession, leaping in the
back of the end zone for another touchdown. Lyons finished with
four catches for 83 yards.
Woodson finished with 290 yards and his second-straight
Pryor stopped the Rebels' first drive of the second half with an
interception after Schaeffer had led the Rebels to the 10. The
turnover came a few plays after what appeared to be a spectacular
diving touchdown catch by Mike Wallace, but Ole Miss was called for
an ineligible receiver penalty.
