#25 MISSISSIPPI REBELS (-4) @ AUBURN TIGERS
In August, nearly every gridiron guru was calling Ole Miss their sleeper team to watch and 6-3 Jr. QB Jevan Sneed their dark horse for the Heisman. And just like what happened when I awoke with two hotties in my college slumber pad, the Rebels ego soared after a few cupcakes and were brought back to reality when they opened SEC play. In their two losses (Gamecocks & Tide), not only did they look passive, but Mr. Snead was absolutely abysmal (33-comp%, 1 TD, 4 INT).
Since then, the Rebels have displayed a swagger that ruined the Gators undefeated season last year and have blowout victories at UAB (48-13) and Arkansas (31-17). As for the former Texas-transfer QB, the NFL draft gurus are starting to see why they had a signal-caller near the top of their draftboards to start the year (67-comp%, 572 yrds, 5 TD, 2 INT). Throw-in the re-emergence of dual-threat speedster Sr. Dexter McCluster (last week: 22 rush, 123 yrds – 11 rec, 137 yrds TD), the power of So. RB Brandon Bolden (426 yrds, 5.5 avg), and plenty of threats on the outside, and Ole Miss has the makings of a strong finish.
As for Auburn, f*ck that former Cyclones Head Coach…he got hired after winning about 25% of his games. Yeah, great hire. They’ve lost 3-straight and I guarantee the kids are wondering what the hell he’s doing running the program.
Final Score: REBELS 31 lilTigers 17
