KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tyler Bray threw three touchdown passes, two of them to Justin Hunter, and Tauren Poole ran for two more as Tennessee got its first Southeastern Conference win of the season with a 52-14 victory over Mississippi on Saturday.
On Tennessee's first play from scrimmage, Bray attempted a pass to Gerald Jones which was tipped by Mississippi's Jonathan Cornell right into the hands of Justin Hunter. Hunter had 80 yards of green space and took it all the way to the end zone.
Bray finished 18 for 34 with 323 yards. Hunter had 114 yards on three catches and Poole had 107 yards on 12 carries.
Ole Miss (4-6, 1-5) couldn't get its offense going with Masoli being pressured by the Vols' defensive line all day.
Tennessee (4-6, 1-5) took a 21-0 lead with 2:33 in the first quarter when Eric Gordon picked off a pass by Masoli at the Rebels 46 and ran it back for a touchdown.
