Masoli broke a 56-yard run in the first quarter and otherwise was quietly efficient as Mississippi downed visiting Fresno State 55-38.
Masoli rushed for 59 yards on eight attempts. He completed 8 of 12 passes for 153 yards, for two touchdowns and with one interception in another starting role. His TD passes covered 30 and 4 yards at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.
Ole Miss improved to 2-2. Fresno State is 2-1.
The Rebels had 578 yards and built a 41-10 lead by early in the third quarter, after scoring on six of seven possessions.
Masoli's team will be at home next Saturday, Oct. 2 verus Kentucky.
The following three Saturdays are doozies for Ole Miss, though – at No. 1 Alabama on Oct. 16, at Arkansas on Oct. 23 and Auburn at Oxford on Oct. 30.
