Louisville vs. Ole Miss odds heading into game week

Ole Miss will not be a SEC contender this season, but they should be one of the most exciting teams to watch all year long as they host Louisville on Labor Day evening.

NCAA Football: Outback Bowl-Mississippi vs Indiana Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

One final game will put an end to college football’s opening weekend as the Louisville Cardinals face the Ole Miss Rebels at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Monday, September 6th at 8:00 p.m. ET. The game is scheduled to air on ESPN.

Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield made for some awkward moments as he flirted with other programs following last season, but it’s unlikely that will have much of an impact with the players on the field. Malik Cunningham will be the quarterback once again for the Cardinals, which should be in the mix for a bowl game in 2021.

Ole Miss is going to score a ton and if Lane Kiffin could figure out a way for the Rebels to play just average defense, this could be a very dangerous team. With Matt Corral at quarterback, this should be one of the most entertaining teams to watch all season long with an offense that is returning a lot of its starters from last season.
