      Missouri tops Ole Miss to improve to 10-1


      Henry Josey rushed for two touchdowns, Marcus Murphy added another and No. 8 Missouri rolled to a 24-10 victory over No. 24 Mississippi on Saturday night.


      Missouri (10-1, 6-1 Southeastern Conference) is now one victory away from clinching the SEC East title.


      The Tigers host Texas A&M next weekend.


      Missouri jumped out to a 17-3 lead by halftime and led by a comfortable margin for most of the second half.


      James Franklin completed 12 of 19 passes for 142 yards and an interception in his first start since a shoulder injury caused him to miss four games.


      Josey rushed for 95 yards.


      The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for Ole Miss (7-4, 3-4).


      Bo Wallace threw for 244 yards and an interception, but was battling an illness for much of the game and struggled during the second half.
