UPDATE: Snead leads Ole Miss to 48-13 rout of UAB

OXFORD — Jevan Snead threw for 240 yards and three touchdowns as Ole Miss defeated Alabama-Birmingham 48-13 on Saturday night.

One week after throwing four interceptions against Alabama, Snead was 15-for-22 with no interceptions for the Rebels (4-2).

Freshman Rodney Scott rushed for two touchdowns for Ole Miss and was one of four players to score their first career touchdowns in the win.

Freshman Jesse Grandy returned the opening kickoff 88 yards for a score, and junior Lionel Breaux and sophomore Andrew Harris each caught touchdown passes.

The Rebels had just 45 yards of total offense in the first quarter, then scored on six consecutive possessions.

UAB quarterback Joe Webb rushed for 121 yards, threw for 89 yards and scored the only touchdown for the Blazers (2-4), who didn’t get on the scoreboard until they trailed 41-0.
