Lane Kiffin’s offense proved too much for Indiana, and the Rebels got a 26-20 win. Mississippi quarterback Matt Corral was named the MVP. In sum, he was 30-of-44 for 342 yards and two touchdowns. Mississippi State beat Illinois in 2022 as they dedicated the win to their fallen late coach, Mike Leach.
