Fayetteville Super Regional Prediction

This is our only SEC vs SEC clash in this year’s NCAA Baseball Super Regionals. Interestingly, Ole Miss won 2 out of 3 in Fayetteville in a Mar. 29-31 series. The Hogs only lost five home games all season and two of those were losses to the Rebels. Can the Rebs do it again? Who knows? But the Rebels certainly showed they had what it takes to make a run in the SEC Tournament, coming very close to winning the whole thing. The Rebs have the hitting to get the job done but their pitching is suspect. Arkansas is still a very good team and anxious to get back to the College World Series. Lightning should not strike twice but you never know. Arkansas 2 wins, Ole Miss 1 win.
