Ole Miss-Tennessee Prediction

This is one of better, more important SEC series for this weekend. Ole Miss has fallen on hard times after a strong start to the season. The Rebels are kind of the head scratcher of the SEC this season. How do you win a series at Arkansas but lose a series at home to Kentucky? Neither team can really afford to lose this series. The Vols get the edge in fielding and pitching while Ole Miss has better hitting. You probably have to give Tennessee the edge in this one. Ole Miss has been in kind of a nose dive while the Vols are now the team no one wants to play. Tennessee 2 wins, Ole Miss 1 win.
