The Ole Miss Rebels and the Vanderbilt Commodores meet in a week 12 SEC college football matchup from Vanderbilt Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Ole Miss Rebels will be out to snap a 3 game losing streak after falling back to .500 with a 38-24 loss to Texas A&M in their last outing. Jordan Ta’amu has thrown for 3,374 yards, 17 touchdowns and 5 interceptions on 64.8% passing while Scottie Phillips has rushed for 927 yards and 12 touchdowns this season. A.J. Brown leads Ole Miss’ receiving corps with 72 grabs for 1,047 yards and 5 touchdowns while DaMarkus Lodge has 53 catches for 706 yards and D.K Metcalf has 569 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns this season. As a team, Ole Miss is averaging the 5th-most total offense per game, with 535.9 yards of total offense, including the 4th-most passing yards per game with 354.8 yards through the air in addition to 37.5 points per game this season.

The Vanderbilt Commodores will look to bounce back after losing 4 of their last 5 games following a 33-28 loss to Missouri in their last outing. Kyle Shurmur has thrown for 2,286 yards, 17 touchdowns and 5 interceptions on 61% passing this season while Ke’Shawn Vaughn has rushed for a Commodores-high 849 yards and 9 touchdowns this season.

Ole Miss is 6-15-1 ATS in their last 22 road games and 8-20-1 ATS in their last 29 games overall while the over is 10-3-1 in their last 14 games following a loss. Vanderbilt is 4-9-1 ATS in their last 14 conference games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games while the under is 7-3 in their last 10 games overall. The road team is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings between these two teams.

The Rebels have been brutal ATS the last couple of seasons, including away from home, where the Rebels are 0-3 ATS this season. However, the Rebels need this win to become bowl eligible, and I think Ole Miss actually has the better offense here and can win this game outright but I’ll take the points to be safe.
