Both these teams give up a lot of points. Ole Miss clearly has the better offense of the two. The Gamecocks are coming off an awful butt whipping at home given by Texas A&M. Both these teams have been up and down this season. It seems like Will Muschamp always pulls out a win at the right time to cool his seat. I don’t believe that will happen in Oxford though. Ole Miss wins this one by a couple of touchdowns.
