Comments

Ole Miss hosts a well-coached, dangerous Tulane team. This Tulane squad came within 5 points of beating Oklahoma in their opener in Norman. The Rebels need to take the Green Wave seriously. I think Ole Miss’s improved defense combined with that potent Lane Kiffin offense will allow the Rebels to prevail but in a not-so lopsided manner.
