Line: Ole Miss (-1)
Who’s ready for quite possibly the best game of Week 13?
Although there will be plenty of other bigger games (on paper), this could be one of the most exciting games, and it might not even be close.
Not only do both Egg Bowl contenders enter this year’s version of the rivalry with eight wins, but each team enters with some extra spice. For the Ole Miss Rebels, they could still make the SEC title game with a victory. However, they also need the Alabama Crimson Tide to lose, which seems like an impossible feat right now. For the Mississippi State Bulldogs, QB Dak Prescott could move one step closer to winning the Heisman. Of course, his team has to win and he has to put up some fancy stats in the process.
Although Prescott might be the Heisman contender, one can’t forget about Chad Kelly, who is capable of torching any defense in the country … whether that be with his arm or with his legs.
Two great quarterbacks, a lot on the line and two rivals going head-to-head — sounds like a must-watcher to me.
The only thing that this contest is missing is some College Football Playoff implications.
Both teams — for all it’s worth — enter this one with some momentum. Mississippi State knocked off the Arkansas Razorbacks last weekend and scored 51 points in the process. Ole Miss dropped the LSU Tigers.
As for the winner of this game, you might as well get out your favorite coin and flip it.
PREDICTION: Rebels 35, Bulldogs 38
