Cocks Crow: Victory

As you roll into work bleary-eyed (but smiling) this morning, take a look at the recaps from around the media:

Here’s some game notes and facts for you:

  • The win is the first at home against a Top 5 team.  It’s just the second win against a Top 5 team in school history.  The last one came in 1981 against No. 3 North Carolina.
  • Stephen Garcia’s 69-yard connection with Moe Brown to start the second half was the longest completion and longest reception of both players’ careers. It was also the longest completion of the Spurrier era.  The last pass play to go for 69 yards or more came in 2004 when Syvelle Newton connected with Troy Williamson for a 74-yard completion vs. South Florida.
  • Patrick DiMarco’s touchdown was the third of his career.  Two of those touchdowns have come on Thursday night against a Top 10 team (2007 vs. #8 Kentucky).
  • Last night was the first time in 19 games that the Rebels failed to score more than 10 points.
  • The loss snaps an 8-game win streak for Ole Miss – a streak which was tied for the second-longest in FBS.
