OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Darren McFadden ran for 110 yards, Felix Jones rushed for 101 and two touchdowns and defending SEC West champion Arkansas earned its first conference victory, 44-8 over Mississippi on Saturday.

Casey Dick threw three touchdown passes for the Razorbacks (4-3, 1-3 Southeastern Conference), who won for the third time in four games.

Ole Miss (2-6, 0-5 SEC) is the only SEC team without a conference victory and is 0-5 in the league for the first time since 1984.

Jones put the Razorbacks (4-3, 1-3) up 14-0 in the first quarter with runs of 38 and 11 yards. The two scoring runs were almost identical with Jones running off right tackle untouched to the end zone.

Ole Miss starting quarterback Seth Adams was pulled in the third quarter after throwing his fourth interception. The senior was replaced by Brent Schaeffer, who threw a late 37-yard touchdown pass and a 2-point conversion to Mike Wallace in the fourth quarter for Ole Miss' only points.

The scoring passes were the only positives in the passing game. The Rebels finished with 182 yards passing, the second lowest output of the season.

Adams threw 10 interceptions during the Rebels' 1-2 three-game homestand.

While Arkansas was only able to turn one interception into points, the turnovers kept Ole Miss from building any momentum.

Dick passed for just 96 yards, but started the game with seven straight completions and was efficient, especially at the goal line.

All of his scoring passes came on the back side of misdirection plays. He hit Andrew Davis on a 1-yard pass to make it 21-0 with 56 seconds gone in the second quarter. He connected with Peyton Hillis for a 9-yard score with 3:09 left in the third quarter to put Arkansas up 28-0.

An 11-yard touchdown pass to Davie with 9 minutes left in the game made it 37-0.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis led Ole Miss with 84 yards rushing and Wallace caught four passes for 57 yards.
