FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Rohan Gaines returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown, and Arkansas' defense forced six turnovers in a 30-0 win over No. 8 Mississippi on Saturday.
The win earned the Razorbacks (6-5, 2-5 Southeastern Conference), losers of 17 straight SEC games until a win over LSU last week, bowl eligibility for the first time in three seasons.
Led by Martrell Spaight's 11 tackles, Arkansas also earned back-to-back conference shutouts for the first time since joining the SEC in 1992.
Bo Wallace led the Rebels (8-3, 4-3) with 235 yards passing, but he also threw two interceptions. Ole Miss outgained the Razorbacks 316-311 but was unable to overcome the turnovers in losing its third straight SEC game.
