The Idaho Vandals are simply one of the worst college football teams in the nation and it will take everything they have just to remain competitive in this one. The Idaho offense is averaging just 16.4 points and 364.1 yards per game and they have turned the ball over 16 times. Chad Chalich has completed 61.4 percent of his passes with five touchdowns and three interceptions and he has rushed for 211 yards. The Idaho ground game is led by James Baker who is averaging 4.2 yards per carry with two touchdowns and he has scored two more touchdowns on four receptions. Dezmon Epps has 46 catches and two touchdowns and Najee Lovett has 22 catches. Defensively Idaho allows 43.1 points and 540.9 yards per game with seven interceptions, six fumble recoveries, and 10 sacks. Mark Millan has 56 tackles, Bradley Njoku has 53 tackles, and Jayshawn Jordan has 44 tackles. Idaho looks to be in big trouble in this spot.
Ole Miss is 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games, 16-5 against the spread in their last 21 non-SEC games, and 12-5 against the spread in their last 17 games. Idaho is 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 road games, 5-12 against the spread in their last 17 games overall, and 3-8 against the spread against a team with a winning record.
Ole Miss is laying a bundle here and they should be as this should be a game where they can name their number they win by.
