Ole Miss-Florida Prediction

The Ole Miss Rebels and Florida Gators arrive at the end of January knowing that their NCAA Tournament margins are very fine. Ole Miss looked like a tournament team a few weeks ago, but then it got punched three times – by LSU, Alabama, and most recently, Iowa State. The Rebels immediately became a target, and opponents have brought their best shot to the Rebels. Now it is time for this team to punch back. Florida would say it has to do the same thing after losing yet another close game at TCU. The Gators have been right there all season, but they haven’t been able to close down games. These teams don’t necessarily need to think about the bubble; they simply need to bag important wins now to give themselves some margin in February. Who wins? The home team. Florida 71, Ole Miss 70.

Game Time: 6:30 ET, 5:30 CT, on SEC Network
