TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Matt Corral threw for 342 yards and two touchdowns, leading Mississippi to a 26-20 upset of seventh-ranked Indiana in the Outback Bowl on Saturday.

Corral’s 3-yard pass to Dontario Drummond put the Rebels ahead for good with 4:12 remaining.

The Ole Miss defense came through with one more stop to ensure the school’s first non-losing record since going 6-6 in 2017.

Coach Lane Kiffin was rewarded before the game with a new contract, even though he’s just competing his first season with the Rebels.
