TAMPA, Fla. — Matt Cor­ral threw for 342 yards and two touch­downs to help Mis­sis­sippi beat No. 7 In­di­ana, 26-20, on Satur­day in the Out­back Bowl.

Cor­ral’s 3-yard pass to Don­tario Drum­mond put the Rebels (5-5) ahead for good with 4:12 re­main­ing. Ole Miss came through with one more stop for its first non-los­ing record since go­ing 6-6 in 2017. First-year coach Lane Kif­fin was re­warded be­fore the game with a new con­tract.

Drum­mond fin­ished with six catches for 110 yards. Cor­ral com­pleted 30 of 44 passes with­out an in­ter­cep­tion, in­clud­ing a 5-yard throw to Casey Kelly that put Ole Miss up, 13-3, mid­way through the sec­ond quar­ter.

Jack Tut­tle was 26 of 45 for 201 yards in his sec­ond start in place Michael Penix Jr. for In­di­ana (6-2). Ste­vie Scott III rushed for 99 yards and scored on runs of 3 and 2 yards to help the Hoosiers wipe out a 20-6 deficit in the fourth quar­ter.

Ole Miss missed the ex­tra point af­ter Drum­mond’s go-ahead TD catch. In­di­ana drove to the Rebels 33 be­fore stalling and turn­ing the ball over on downs in the fi­nal minute.

Fi­esta Bowl

(12) Iowa State 34, (25) Ore­gon 17 GLEN­DALE, Ariz. — Breece Hall ran for 136 yards and two touch­downs, Brock Purdy ac­counted for two scores and Iowa State beat Ore­gon.

The Cy­clones (9-3) used their ball-con­trol of­fense to dom­i­nate the time of pos­ses­sion and keep Ore­gon’s of­fense off the field for long stretches to win their first New Year’s Six bowl.

Hall, an AP All-amer­i­can, had 34 car­ries and his ninth 100-yard game this sea­son. Purdy, who went to high school in nearby Gil­bert, threw for 156 yards and a touch­down on 20-of-29 pass­ing, adding a touch­down on the ground. Iowa State had a time of pos­ses­sion ad­van­tage of more than 25 min­utes.

Ore­gon (4-3, CFP 25) al­ter­nated between Tyler Shough and An­thony Brown at quar­ter­back, but couldn’t sus­tain any­thing on of­fense and was plagued by nu­mer­ous mis­takes.

Or­ange Bowl

Texas A&M 41, North Carolina 27 MI­AMI GAR­DENS, Fla. — Devon Achane had two late touch­down runs, in­clud­ing a 76-yarder with 3:44 left that put Texas A&M ahead to stay, and the fifth-ranked Ag­gies beat No. 14 North Carolina to cap a win­less bowl sea­son for the At­lantic Coast Con­fer­ence.

Kellen Mond passed for 232 yards and ran for a score for the Ag­gies (9-1), who were in the Or­ange Bowl for the first time since 1944. Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher im­proved to 3-0 in Or­ange Bowls, win­ning two pre­vi­ous ones at Florida State.

Sam How­ell passed for 234 yards and three touch­downs, two of them to Josh Downs, for the Tar Heels (8-4).

Ga­tor Bowl

Ken­tucky 23, (24) N.C. State 21 JACK­SONVILLE, Fla. — A.J. Rose ran for a ca­reer-high 148 yards, Chris Ro­driguez added 84 yards and two scores and Ken­tucky held off North Carolina State in a chippy Ga­tor Bowl.

Christo­pher Dunn missed two field goals for the Wolf­pack (8-4), who trailed, 16-14, late when Bai­ley Hock­man threw his third in­ter­cep­tion of the game. Ro­driguez scored on the en­su­ing play, go­ing nearly un­touched for 26 yards.

NC State got a fi­nal chance af­ter Jor­dan Hous­ton scored with 1:10 re­main­ing. But Allen Dai­ley re­cov­ered Dunn’s on­side kick, and the Wild­cats (5-6) ran out the clock.
