LSU rallied to tie it on Hill's 1-yard touchdown run around the left side and a 2-point conversion on Mettenberger's pass to Ware, but the Rebels marched right back down the field in 28 seconds to regain the lead, 35-28, on Wallace's pass to Moncrief along the left sideline.
That, however, would be the final points for a Mississippi team that is one win from bowl eligibility and made it clear early on it was not going to lay down against an LSU team favored by more than two touchdowns.
Ole Miss took a 21-17 lead into halftime after Wallace converted a fourth-and-3 with a 20-yard pass to Logan, then hit Logan again for 25 yards before keeping the ball for his second rushing TD of the game from the 1.
"We should have had it. We let it slip away," Mackey said. "We're just tired of losing. We came ready to play."
