The Pick

Ole Miss -2.5

Despite all the drama surrounding Lane Kiffin’s future with the program, he will have the Rebels ready for a third-straight win over the Bulldogs. With the rain expected to come down pretty heavy, look for Ole Miss to offer a heavy done of running backs Quinshon Judkins and Zach Evans.
