Back on Saturday versus Western Carolina, the Yellow Jackets were tied at 14 apiece after the first quarter. Georgia Tech turned it on afterward and rolled to a 35-17 win. RB Dontae Smith did most of the heavy lifting on offense with 11 carries for 102 yards and three scores. 

The Rebels are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five in September and 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight after an ATS win. Ole Miss is 6-2-1 ATS in their last nine non-conference games. 

Meanwhile, the Jackets are 16-35 ATS in their last 51 overall and 5-12 ATS in their last 17 in September. Georgia Tech is 6-21 ATS versus a team with a winning record. 

PICK: I’m going to try Ole Miss in this one. We should have a pretty fun matchup here regardless. The Rebels rolled in their last matchup, posting 508 total yards with 7.5 yards per play, 26 first downs and just three punts. Ole Miss posted nine penalties overall, but they were dominant on both sides of the ball. 

As for Georgia Tech, they bagged 243 rush yards in their win over WCU. The Jackets struck quickly with just 15 first downs and 19:44 in time of possession. This matchup is probably going to look a little different as far as ball control though, and I think the Rebels can keep the pace on a cover.
