Comments

This Ole Miss team has had problems scoring points in games. When they do score points they also seem to give up more points on defense, hence, SE Louisiana. Cal isn’t a team that scores points in bunches. This game will kind of end up being a shootout of sorts. I’m predicting Ole Miss to win but it won’t be a blowout win.
