Auburn is a 3.5-point favorite against Ole Miss, with an over/under of 63.
This is the perfect opportunity for the Ole Miss Rebels to make some noise. If you were to ask any sane Rebels fan at the beginning of the season what the chances were to beat the Auburn Tigers, they should say slim to none. Of course, this is no easy task. The Tigers, at one point, were College Football Playoff contender. But Ole Miss is hot at the right time, and Auburn is not.
Don’t get me wrong, Auburn is still the favorite to win. They are armed with a solid defense, talented and explosive receivers. Jarrett Stidham is still the quarterback, and had an alright outing against the Tennessee Volunteers, despite two costly interceptions.
Where Ole Miss will struggle is with injuries. Many of their injuries, including D.K. Metcalf and Jaylon Jones, come at the skill positions.
Jordan Ta’amu has to take shots down the field against Auburn’s secondary. Last week, the Tigers gave up 328 yards and two touchdowns through the air to the Volunteers. The Rebels have a talented and explosive enough receiving corp to beat the Tigers. It shouldn’t just be shots down the field, but it should also be spread out. Short passes and solid defense won the game against the Arkansas Razorbacks.
The Rebels defense has been atrocious. They rank 110th in scoring defense, and 122nd in yards allowed per game. They have to stop the run and force Stidham to throw the ball as much as possible in order to win the game.
