Ole Miss-LSU Prediction

Statistically, Ole Miss is the better team in this series. It’s just so hard to win an SEC series on the road against a decent team. The Rebs might pull it out but playing in Alex Box Stadium it’s more likely the Tigers will come out with the series win. Prediction: LSU 2 wins, Ole Miss 1 win.
