The Ole Miss Rebels deserve to be favored given what they’ve done through 7 games, but they have yet to have a tough road game this season and their run defense does concern me a bit. You can run on Ole Miss. The LSU Tigers have been solid for the most part, and it feels like their offense is playing with a bit more consistency. It’s always tough to win at Tiger Stadium. I’ll grab the points with LSU, as this will be the biggest test for Ole Miss yet.
