The Baylor Bears and Ole Miss Rebels meet in the Sugar Bowl in an effort to cement solid 2021 campaigns with a bowl victory. The Bears won the Big 12 title and look to be a rising program under Dave Aranda, while Lane Kiffin’s Rebels achieved a top-10 ranking in a promising season in Oxford.

The Bears have a methodical offense and opportunistic defense, but the most important element of this team is Aranda’s coaching. He’s seen as a fast riser and has this program set to make noise in the Big 12 consistently. A Sugar Bowl win means a lot on the recruiting front as well for the Bears.

There were rumors about Kiffin potentially leaving Ole Miss but it appears the coach is here to stay for a long haul. Matt Corral’s Heisman campaign didn’t go quite as planned but the quarterback will be looking to make a big statement to open 2022. Look for the Rebels to pull out all the stops offensively in this one.
