Comments

This game in which the quarterback situations for each team are going to be a big factor. Ole Miss has two freshmen listed on their depth charts, John Rhys Plumlee, who is speedster runner but not that great of a passer, is listed as a possible starter along with another freshman, Matt Corral. Corral is the better passer of the two. On the Mizzou side, much-discussed Clemson transfer quarterback Kelly Bryant suffered what appeared to be a vicious knee injury in Saturday win over Troy. The Missouri staff claims that the injury wasn’t as bad as it appears and Bryant is listed as the starter for Saturday’s game. Missouri should win this game solidly in Columbia. If this game was in Oxford, the Rebels might eek out a win.
