The Lumberjacks are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 non-conference games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Rebels are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
Ole Miss lost to Charleston Southern and isn't the best offensive team we've seen this season early on. Why can't Northern Arizona hang around? Give me as many points as possible.
