On Wednesday night, No. 11 Auburn got its SEC schedule started in Oxford, taking on a hot, but unranked, Ole Miss squad.
What happened? Well, the Rebels dominated pretty much from the opening tip, cruising to an easy 82-67 victory over the Tigers. Auburn cut into the Rebels’ lead midway through the second half, but then Kermit Davis’s squad pulled away late for the big-time win.
Terence Davis led the way for the Rebels, scoring 27 points and grabbing 12 rebounds in the signature win for Davis’s squad.
Fans were thrilled with the way the Rebels played, and they took to Twitter to express their joy over the big win, as you can see below:
Ole Miss with the big win over #11 Auburn. That last place SEC projection might have been a little bit off.

That was no fluke. Ole Miss dominated in every aspect. Depth is going to be a problem at pointsthis season, but this team is no longer just a possibility of a threat.
They are legit.

#OleMiss has won 11 of the last 13 against Auburn. The famed Marshall GIF was just the start of the Rebel horror for the Tigers.
