Ole Miss-Arkansas Prediction

Ole Miss and the Hogs tangle in Fayetteville. The Rebels have had a very favorable first two SEC series (at MO, vs. @Bama). Things are about to get a little bumpier. Losing a series at Missouri indicates some vulnerabilities in Ole Miss, particularly batting. Arkansas is probably one of top two teams in the SEC and among the best in the nation. Arkansas 3 wins, Ole Miss 0 wins.
