Millsaps held off rival Mississippi College on Saturday to win the Backyard Brawl 23-17.
The Majors rolled up 268 yards rushing with 150 coming from Mike Barthelemy.
The win snaps a three-game losing skid against the Choctaws.
"My offensive line had a field day, everything was open. Today we prevailed and did what we had to do," Barthelemy said.
