The Ole Miss Rebels look to remain unbeaten at home by beating a second ranked team. Chad Kelly is completing 65.5 percent of his passes for 2,234 yards, 16 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Kelly has six touchdown passes in his last three games. Laquon Treadwell and Cody Core have combined for 1,080 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Quincy Adeboyejo has 20 receptions. The Ole Miss Rebels ground game is averaging 167.1 yards per contest, and Jaylen Walton leads the way with 331 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Ole Miss is allowing 22.1 points and 359.4 yards per game. Denzel Nkemdiche leads the Rebels with 41 tackles, Trae Elston has four interceptions and Marquis Haynes has 3.5 sacks. Damore'ea Stringfellow, Robert Nkemdiche and Jaylon Walton are questionable.
The Aggies are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in October. The Rebels are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 conference games.
Both teams are coming off ugly losses, so this is a little tougher to cap as you don't know how either team is going to rebound. Overall, however, I have more faith in the Rebels at home than I do Texas A&M on the road. Give me Ole Miss by a touchdown.
