Despite Ole Miss' loss to LSU, Rebels still projected to make playoff
Ole Miss isn't done as a playoff team after losing to LSU as Jerry Palm projects the Rebels to win out and claim the SEC title.
But like every other one-loss team, Ole Miss isn't done as a playoff team. In fact, I still project the Rebels as one of the four teams in the college football playoff.
Ole Miss still has home games with their two toughest opponents, Auburn and Mississippi State. The Rebels still have to travel to Arkansas, a game they have to take seriously, but if they win out, they will be the SEC West champion.
Meanwhile, despite Mississippi State being currently undefeated and the No. 1 team in the nation, I project they will miss the playoff, losing at Alabama (Nov. 15) and at Ole Miss (Nov. 29).
It's going to take one more loss to knock the Rebels from the role of SEC favorite and a projected playoff team.
