Miss football score vs. Texas Tech: Live updates – Clarion Ledger

HOUSTON — Ole Miss football is looking to score a Texas Bowl victory on Wednesday when it takes on Texas Tech at NRG Stadium.
The Rebels (8-4) enter this game having lost three consecutive contests to close out their regular season. Ole Miss’ players have emphasized how ending that losing streak is a key motivating factor for them coming into bowl season. Outside of players in the transfer portal, the Rebels have not had anyone opt out of playing in this game, according to Lane Kiffin.
Texas Tech (7-5) enters this game playing good football. The Red Raiders concluded their regular season with victories against Kansas, Iowa State and Oklahoma.
These two teams have met relatively recently, playing a regular-season game in Houston that Ole Miss won in 2018. Ole Miss holds a 4-2 advantage in the all-time series, including victories in all three of the bowl matchups between these two programs.

FINAL: Texas Tech 42, Ole Miss 25. A fourth-straight loss for the Rebels to finish the season.
41 seconds left: Jaxson Dart intercepted in the end zone. That’ll do it.
3:03 left: The onside kick is returned for a touchdown by Texas Tech’s Loic Fouonji. 44-yard kickoff return TD.
PAT good. That kind of night for Ole Miss.
Texas Tech 42, Ole Miss 25.
3:10 left: Touchdown Ole Miss! What a catch from Malik Heath, and what a back-shoulder throw by Jaxson Dart.
19-yard TD pass. Two-point conversion is… no good. Pass incomplete. Jordan Watkins was intended target and was clearly interfered with, but no flag. Curious.
Texas Tech 35, Ole Miss 25.
3:26 left: Quinshon Judkins gains 23 yards on a carry up the middle.
4:45 left: Dart to Malik Heath for 30 yards. Heath stays on the turf after the play. He’s up after being checked out by Ole Miss staff.
5:40 left: What a play by Miles Battle, hustling to punch the ball out of Tech RB Cam’Ron Valdez’s hands as Valdez was about to score.
Ball flew through the end zone. Touchback, and Ole Miss ball. Rebels still have a pathway here.
Jaxson Dart back in the game.
7:35 left: Touchdown Ole Miss! Jaxson Dart is upended as he runs into the end zone, but he was across the goal line.
He stays down after the play and slowly walks off after a few moments. Here comes Luke Altmyer on the two-point try.
Altmyer’s pass is incomplete. Texas Tech 35, Ole Miss 19.
9:36 left: TTU’s Trey Wolff is good from 25 yards out. Tech QB Tyler Shough has 103 rushing yards and two TDs on 24 carries.
Texas Tech 35, Ole Miss 13.
12:03 left: Dayton Wade make the first down catch over the middle but fumbles in Texas Tech territory. Red Raiders ball.
A very, very bad day for the Ole Miss offense.
13:20 left: Touchdown Texas Tech. SaRodorick Thompson with a 1-yard touchdown run. A 11-play, 71-yard drive. Two-point try no good.
Texas Tech 32, Ole Miss 13.
1:55 left: Quinshon Judkins stuffed on 2nd and 1. Jaxson Dart stuffed on 3rd and 1. Judkins stuffed again on 4th and 1.
Not good football. Tech ball.
3:40 left: Tyler Shough is sacked, stripped and fumbles. Ole Miss recovers. Tavius Robinson on the sack.
4:53 left: Ladarius Tennison ejected for targeting on the Tech punt returner. That will stand upon review.
5:02 left: Dart is incomplete on 3rd and 18. Ole Miss will punt.
6:14 left: Trey Wolff misses from 41 yards out. Ole Miss’ defense holds again.
9:08 left: Touchdown Ole Miss! Dart to Jordan Watkins for an 11-yard TD. PAT no good after a false start on a two-point conversion attempt.
Texas Tech 26, Ole Miss 13.
12:48 left: Ole Miss may or may not get back in this game. But that was a needed defensive stop out of the half. Texas Tech will punt.
28 seconds left: Shough to Jerand Bradley for a Tech touchdown. Two-point try no good.
Texas Tech 26, Ole Miss 7.
1:42 left: Jaxson Dart is driven into the turf on a carry and fumbles. Texas Tech recovers, and Dart is in some discomfort.
Ruling on the field stands after review. Tech ball.
2:13 left: Texas Tech’s Trey Wolff is good from 32 yards out. Ole Miss defense holds and (more importantly?) forces a kick.
Texas Tech 20, Ole Miss 7.
6:24 left: Ole Miss’ offensive woes continue. Dayton Wade is 3 yards short on a 4th and 6 from the Ole Miss 29-yard line. Turnover on downs.
That probably should have been a punt.
6:59 left: Touchdown Texas Tech! Tyler Shough stretches into the end zone over the right side on a 2-yard touchdown run. Red Raiders cash in on the turnover.
Texas Tech 17, Ole Miss 7.
8:02 left: Dart is intercepted by Tech’s Marquis Waters deep in Ole Miss territory. Awful, awful start for the Rebels offense.
10:19 left: A much-needed stop for Ole Miss’ defense, holding on 4th and goal from the Ole Miss 2-yard line. Shough threw short of the goal line, which often produces defensive stops.
13:20 left: Troy Brown hits Shough late, is called for a personal foul with targeting.
After review, it is targeting. Brown is DQd.
44 seconds left: Dart is intercepted on 4th and 3 near midfield. Yikes.
3:23 left: Trey Wolff is good from 42 yards out.
Texas Tech 10, Ole Miss 7.
5:26 left: Touchdown Ole Miss! Zach Evans 8-yard TD run ties the game with the PAT good.
Ole Miss 7, Texas Tech 7.
6:10 left: Great response by Jaxson Dart. A 37-yard catch by Dayton Wade and a 19-yard reception by Malik Heath has Ole Miss in scoring range.
6:43 left: This first quarter is a tale of fourth downs. Texas Tech is in the end zone on fourth and goal from the Ole Miss 2-yard line on a Tyler Shough keeper on a snap that went through the legs of a motioning Behren Morton. Wow.
PAT good. Texas Tech 7, Ole Miss 0.
9:13 left: Lane Kiffin is going for it just about everywhere on the field, I suppose. Ole Miss QB Quinshon Judkins is stuffed for a loss on fourth and 1 at the Ole Miss 29-yard line.
10:37 left: Ole Miss interception! Tyler Shough is picked off in the end zone by Trey Washington. Ole Miss’ defense finishes a shaky opening drive with a big play.
12:33 left: Jaxson Dart’s 4th down pass is incomplete. Ole Miss’ first drive ends on a turnover on downs in Tech territory.
15:00 left: About ready to go in Houston. Will Ole Miss get back to running the ball more efficiently tonight? The 2.0 yards per rush number against Mississippi State last month has to be a sour taste. That may be the key tonight.
Kickoff scheduled for just after 8:10 p.m.
