Cassanova McKinzy was on the recovery for Auburn, but it wasn't just the loss that broke the hearts of Ole Miss. Treadwell reportedly broke his left leg on that play, this according to head coach Hugh Freeze.
The Tigers are now 7-1 overall, and 4-1 in conference play, enjoying their best start since 1990. Ole Miss has now lost 2 in a row, as they fall to 7-2 overall, and 4-2 in conference play.
Auburn matched up nicely against the nation's best defense, gaining 507 yards and 35 points in a game. The Rebels were the only team to not give up at least 20 points in a game this season, before Saturday. The Rebels struggled to score last week, only putting 7 points on the board against LSU, but gained 492 yards in Saturday's loss.
Auburn was able to overcome a rough night with the yellow flags, facing 13 penalties for 145 yards. Nick Marshall ended the game 15/22 for 254 yards, with an interception. The interception was the Rebels' Senquez Golson's nation-leading 9th. Marshall ran for 1 TD, and threw for 2. Cameron Artis-Payne had 27 carries for 143 yards on the night.
Bo Wallace was 28/40 passing for 341 yards and 2 TD's, while running for another. He also had one fumble loss, which occurred in the red zone. The Rebels' offense was lead by receivers Evan Engram with 123 yards, Vince Sanders with 105 yards, and Treadwell with 103 yards.
Auburn, 3rd in the playoff rankings, look to continue their best start in 24 years, as they host struggling Texas A&M next Saturday. Ole Miss, 4th in the playoff rankings, have a lot of ground to make up, as they host a lowly Presbyterian team Saturday. They do have one more shot at a statement win, hosting No. 1 Mississippi State November 29th.
