Grove Bowl Ends in 17-17 Tie

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Barry Brunetti threw for 211 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions as the Blue and Red teams finished in a 17-17 tie at the Mississippi Grove Bowl spring game Saturday.

Brunetti, a sophomore transfer from West Virginia, completed 12 of 21 passes and is one of three quarterbacks in competition for the starting job.

Junior Randall Mackey completed 9 of 18 passes for 151 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Coach Houston Nutt said the third quarterback, junior Zack Stoudt, didn't play because of an academic issue.

Junior Devin Thomas rushed for 92 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries. Redshirt freshman Vincent Sanders caught four passes for 96 yards.

Sophomore safety Brishen Matthews led the Rebels with eight tackles.
