2013 BBVA Compass Bowl final score: Ole Miss dominates Pitt, 38-17

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

Three first-half touchdown passes from Bo Wallace sparked the Runnin' Rebels.

Pittsburgh had no answer for Ole Miss' diverse rushing attack, allowing 224 rushing yards on the ground in a 38-17 loss to the Runnin' Rebels. Ole Miss jumped out to a two-touchdown lead at halftime and used its running game to lean on a porous Panther defense.

Rebels quarterback Bo Wallace threw three touchdowns in the first half to build a 24-10 halftime lead. The Panthers just couldn't get started, coming up empty on their first five possessions, which included two turnovers. Pittsburgh failed in the running game, gaining just 81 yards on the ground and averaging 2.3 yards per carry. Compare that to Ole Miss, which averaged 4.6 yards per carry en route to 224 yards.

Five Ole Miss players had more than 20 yards on the ground, with I'Tavius Mathers leading the way with 96 yards on just six carries, including a 62-yard run in the fourth quarter to put the Panthers away.

Pittsburgh finishes the season with a 3-4 record in the Big East, and drops to 6-7 overall with the loss.
