Challenges for Ole Miss

The Rebels have got to find some defense to complement their powerful offense. Arkansas is a team that is coming around offensively. The Hogs hung 31 on Alabama on Saturday. Sure many of those points were scored against Bama backups but still, that’s an impressive number to score on the nation’s No. 1 team. Ole Miss has to slow down Chad Morris’ offense or they could be looking at another conference loss.

Challenges for Arkansas

The Hogs have struggled defensively this season. Ole Miss QB Jordan Ta’amu is a player that can hurt opponents. At the halfway mark in the season he’s got almost 2,000 yards passing. To have a shot at winning the Razorbacks must somehow keep pressure on Ta’amu while covering the Rebel’s elite corps of wide receivers.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 6:30 pm CT and can be seen on the SEC Network.
