Halftime: Ole Miss 20, Fresno State 14
By Edward Aschoff
It must be that West Coast persona that has Ole Miss clicking a little more on offense Saturday night.
The Rebels went into halftime leading Fresno State 20-14 and they can thank Brandon Bolden for most of that. The senior, who dealt with a tough ankle injury in the first game had 33 yards on three carries and two touchdowns.
Randall Mackey also got the start at quarterback and threw for 114 yards and one touchdown. He also rushed for 33 yards with long of 28.
Ole Miss had 203 total yards of offense in the first half.
Defensively, the Rebels gave up 264 yards, but forced two turnovers. All and all it was a good half for the Rebels, but the offense needs to keep going in order to keep the lead and extend it.
