OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Chad Kelly threw for 321 yards, Jaylen Walton ran for a season-high 133 yards and No. 3 Mississippi pushed past feisty Vanderbilt 27-16 on Saturday night.

It was a mostly mediocre performance for the Ole Miss offense, which came into the game averaging 64 points per game - tops in the nation.

The Rebels' red zone offense was particularly bad. Ole Miss had to settle for three field goal attempts when inside Vanderbilt's 20. Two were made and one was blocked, which helped keep the Commodores in the game much longer than most expected.

Ole Miss (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) broke the game open midway through the fourth quarter when Walton ran for a 3-yard touchdown after two long runs earlier in the drive.

Vanderbilt (1-3, 0-2) lost its third straight against the Rebels. Johnny McCrary threw for 194 yards and Ralph Webb ran for 90.
