STARKVILLE, Miss. -- — Quinshon Judkins rushed for 119 yards and a touchdown, and No. 12 Mississippi clamped down on defense to beat rival Mississippi State 17-7 on Thursday night in their annual Battle for the Golden Egg.

Jaxson Dart threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Caden Prieskorn early in the fourth quarter to give the Rebels (10-2, 6-2 SEC, No. 12 CFP) a 10-point lead. Judkins scored on a 2-yard run in the third to put Ole Miss ahead 10-7.

Will Rogers passed for 207 yards and scored on a 1-yard TD run that gave the Bulldogs (5-7, 1-7) a 7-3 advantage with 8:33 left in the third.

But the Rebels responded by going 75 yards in 10 plays to regain the lead when Judkins punched it in.
