OXFORD, Miss. — Mississippi junior Bo Wallace completed 16 of 26 passes for 240 yards, two touchdowns and an interception to lead the Red team over the Blue 24-23 in overtime during Saturday's Grove Bowl at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

Wallace and junior Barry Brunetti have been competing for the starting job all spring. Brunetti completed 4 of 10 passes for 62 yards and also rushed for 109 yards on 14 carries.

First-year coach Hugh Freeze said both quarterbacks had good moments during the two-hour spring game and the competition would likely extend into preseason practice during August. Freeze also said he could see a scenario where both quarterbacks would play a considerable role in the fall.

Vincent Sanders caught five passes for 89 yards. Ja-Mes Logan and Donte Moncrief both had two touchdown catches.
