AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Nick Marshall ran for 140 yards and two touchdowns, Robenson Therezie scored on a 78-yard interception return and Auburn held off No. 24 Mississippi 30-22 on Saturday night for its first win over a Top 25 team in two years.

Marshall's second scoring run gave Auburn a 27-9 lead in the third quarter. The Tigers lost two turnovers in the fourth quarter to help the Ole Miss comeback attempt.

Ole Miss was held to only three field goals before Bo Wallace threw a 49-yard touchdown pass to Donte Moncrief in the third quarter and added a 12-yard scoring pass to Moncrief midway through the fourth quarter.

Auburn (4-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) already has topped its win total from last season, when it finished 3-9 overall and 0-8 in the SEC.

Ole Miss (3-2, 1-2), coming off a 25-0 loss at No. 1 Alabama, has lost two straight.
