TV Schedule: Saturday, Oct. 24, 7:00 p.m. ET, ESPN
Stadium: Vaught-Hemingway Stadium
Line: Ole Miss (-5.5)
The Rebels are coming off an upset loss against the Memphis Tigers while the Aggies are coming off a home loss against the Alabama Crimson Tide. Nonetheless, both squads are very much alive when it comes to winning an SEC title … if someone can stop Leonard Fournette and the LSU Tigers.
Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly is very capable of torching any team for a ton of points, but his early Heisman hopes have been killed, and he is also coming off a two-interception performance.
Texas A&M QB Kyle Allen needed a mammoth outing to join the Heisman pack, but he threw three interceptions against the Crimson Tide instead.
While Ole Miss doesn’t stand a chance at making the playoff, I am predicting it to finish very strong down the stretch. As a result, it might even end up winning the SEC West. First and foremost, the Rebels need to take care of the fierce Aggies, and Kelly is going to play a major role in that one.
Life on the road in the SEC is rather tough, and Texas A&M is going to find that out in Week 8, which could spell some serious doom when it comes to making the conference title game.
PREDICTION: Aggies 24, Rebels 28
