OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — Kamryn Pettway ran for a career-high 236 yards and a touchdown, and Sean White passed for 247 yards for Auburn.

Ole Miss’ Chad Kelly threw for a school-record 465 yards, beating Archie Manning’s previous mark of 436 yards set in 1969. Kelly also threw three touchdown passes and one interception.

But the Rebels couldn’t keep up with Auburn, which finished with 554 total yards. The Tigers once again gave a heavy workload to Pettway, a sophomore who responded by smashing through the Ole Miss defense with his 240-pound body time after time.

Auburn (6-2, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) won its fifth straight, while Ole Miss (3-5, 1-4) lost its third in a row.
