Tennessee-Ole Miss Series Prediction

This is probably the most pivotal SEC series of the 2nd week. Both these teams look really strong. Ole Miss has been predicted by some to be the best team in College Baseball. Tennessee might also be in that discussion based on their performance so far this season. I think Ole Miss will eek out a series win but it could go either way.

Ole Miss 2 wins, Tennessee 1 win
