Comments

This should be a fun game to watch with two high-powered offenses that like to pile up the points. We still don’t know how good Ole Miss is because they haven’t played a formidable opponent. Yes, Georgia Tech is a power conference team but they are having a sub-par season. I think Ole Miss wins this one by double digits and then they move into the meat of their schedule.
