Ole Miss Rebels (home) vs. South Carolina Gamecocks (away)
Current records: Ole Miss 5-3-1; South Carolina 4-3-1
What to Know
Ole Miss have had a week off and are no doubt ready to get back on the field. They will square off against South Carolina at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday. Ole Miss are expected to win -- but not by much -- so they will need to come into the matchup prepared for a fight.
Ole Miss received a tough blow two weeks ago as they fell 16-31 to Auburn. The loss shouldn't obscure the performances of Jordan Ta'amu, who accumulated 324 passing yards and picked up 43 yards on the ground on 19 carries, and A.J. Brown, who caught 10passes for 155 yards and 1 touchdown.
Meanwhile, it was a close one, but last Saturday South Carolina sidestepped Tennessee for a 27-24 win.
South Carolina's victory lifted them to 4-3-1 while Ole Miss's defeat dropped them down to 5-3-1. Rico Dowdle will be someone to keep an eye on after he rushed for 140 yards and 1 touchdown on 14 carries last week. Let's see if he can build on that strong performance or if Ole Miss's defense can bottle him up.
