Snead bomb paces spirited offense

It was a strange day inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium Wednesday.

Corey Actis and Dustin Mouzon carried water out to the officials during stoppages in play. Peria Jerry wore a whistle around his neck. Jerrell Powe smiled on the sidelines.

But the ending wasn't so strange, as Jevan Sneed hooked up with Lionel Breaux for a 60-yard touchdown pass to give the offense the win, Ole Miss head coach Ed Orgeron said.

"Lionel caught some big passes," Orgeron said.

Breaux caught at least one other touchdown pass in the scrimmage, which was open to the media for much of the four quarters.

In addition to Breaux, Orgeron praised the play of most of the obvious participants - Sneed, Michael Herrick, Cordera Eason, Jeremy McGee.
