Arkansas vs. Ole Miss Football Series History

Arkansas leads 36-30-1


The Hogs-Rebels matchup is important in the race to remain in the upper echelon of the west and not fall into the also-rans group. These two teams are evenly matched but very different. Both teams are coming off disappointing losses. I give Ole Miss and their high-powered offense and home field the advantage but rough and tough Arkansas could march into Oxford and go home with the victory. This one could probably go either way.
