OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Corey Bramlet threw for 220 yards and two touchdowns to help Wyoming beat Mississippi 24-14 on Saturday night

Wyoming (3-1) beat the Rebels 37-32 last season in Laramie.

Bramlet finished 17-of-33, and Wynel Seldon added 124 yards rushing and 78 receiving, including a 5-yard touchdown run.

The Cowboys rolled up 383 yards of total offense and forced Ole Miss into four turnovers, spoiling Mississippi coach Ed Orgeron's home debut.

The home loss was the most lopsided since a 27-7 loss to Southern Mississippi in 1983. The Rebels had won 24 of the previous 26 games in Oxford against nonconference opponents.

The Rebels (1-2) struggled offensively. Quarterback Robert Lane was ineffective in replacing injured starter Michael Spurlock, who broke the middle finger on his left hand in last week's loss to Vanderbilt.

Spurlock played in the second half, but was unable to rally the Rebels past the Cowboys. Spurlock finished 5-of-14 for 83 yards and a touchdown. Lane was 7-of-15 for 37 yards and turned the ball over on three consecutive series to open the third period.

With the score tied, Jovan Bouknight scored on a 29-yard screen pass from Bramlet with 50 seconds remaining in the first half for a 13-7 lead.

Wyoming took a 16-7 lead on a 53-yard field goal by Deric Yaussi, after Luke Chase recovered a fumble by Lane on the opening play of the second half.

The Cowboys went up 24-7 on a 4-yard touchdown pass to Wade Betschart with 6 seconds remaining in the third period after Ole Miss punter Will Mosely mishandled the snap and managed to lose 8 yards on a punt.

Spurlock threw a 41-yard touchdown pass to Mike Espy with 1:33 left.
