Ole Miss-South Carolina Series Prediction

Many college baseball “experts” projected Ole Miss to be the National Champion for 2022 but right now that prediction does not look very promising. This season has been crazy so far with Tennessee on an unheard-of terror run while last year’s conference powers, Mississippi State and Vandy have struggled for the most part. This series is another hard-to-pick trio of games. I’m going with the Gamecocks, who have looked improved so far.

South Carolina 2 wins, Ole Miss 1 win
