SEC win projections — Ole Miss: 9.5

The Rebels are another popular dark horse pick this year. With the way their schedule shapes up, I’m not surprised.

The non-conference is a joke—Furman, MTSU, Wake Forest, and Georgia Southern—and should be an easy four wins. With the exception of a trip to Death Valley, they host the rest of their toughest games: Georgia, Oklahoma, and Kentucky.

The Rebs do have a “scheduled loss” with the LSU game coming as the second straight road contest, following the trip to Columbia, SC. Other than that, road trips to Arkansas and Florida are really not very intimidating (though Arky comes between the OU and UGA games, so could have a bit of a let-down-look-ahead sandwich going there, as the Solid Verbal coined).

I see a loss to Georgia, for sure. I also see a loss to LSU, most likely. Other than that, I’d really have to do a fair amount of talking myself into seeing any of these other games being losses. This pains me, as I am no Lane Kiffin fan, but give me the OVER for the Rebels.
