COLLEGE STATION, Tex. - Quinshon Judkins rushed for 205 yards, Jaxson Dart passed for three touchdowns and No. 15 Mississippi beat Texas A&M 31-28.

Judkins had a 1-yard touchdown run with 7:18 remaining, helping Mississippi rebound from its first loss of the season. He is up to 1,036 yards rushing on the season.

Dart threw touchdown passes of 18, 1 and 2 yards. He was 13 for 20 for 140 yards, and also had 17 carries for 95 yards on the ground.

Zach Evans, who missed last week's 45-20 loss to LSU with a leg injury, returned against the Aggies and rushed for 75 yards. Jonathan Mingo had four catches for 89 yards and a touchdown for the Rebels (8-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference).

Ole Miss rushed for 391 yards, including 134 yards in the first quarter, and finished with 530 total yards.

Connor Weigman was 28 of 44 for 338 yards and four touchdowns for Texas A&M (3-5, 1-4). The Aggies lost their fourth straight game for the school's longest slide since losing four straight at the end of the 2005 season.

Devon Achane rushed 25 times for 138 yards, and Moose Muhammad III caught eight passes for 112 yards and a score.

Texas A&M cut the lead to three on a 7-yard touchdown pass from Weigman to Achane with 1:25 remaining. The Rebels then went three-and-out, but the Aggies turned the ball over on downs to end it.

Trailing 14-7 in the first quarter, the Rebels reeled off the next 17 points. Ole Miss had a field goal before halftime, and Dart connected on touchdown passes to Casey Kelly and Mingo to take a 24-14 lead with a minute left in the third.

THE TAKEAWAY

Mississippi: After a slow start, the Rebels scored on three of four drives to end the first half and start the second half to open up the 10-point lead. Ole Miss' fast-paced offense gave Texas A&M problems throughout the game.

Texas A&M: Penalties hurt Texas A&M once again. The Aggies finished with nine penalties for 51 yards and were 5 of 13 on third downs.

GUTSY CALL

Facing fourth-and-4 on its 16 with eight minutes remaining in the second quarter, Ole Miss faked a punt, and J.J. Pegues ran it up the middle for the first down. The drive ended in a 46-yard field goal by Jonathan Cruz.
