Auburn is flying below the radar in the SEC right now.
They have won four in a row and their only losses were to Top 10 teams Clemson and Texas A&M. Until they lose again they are in the hunt in the SEC West as they get Alabama on the final week of the season per usual.
Ole Miss does not have any bad losses but four of them is a lot.
They will be happy to get home after losing back to back roadies against LSU and Arkansas. Don’t let that sub .500 record fool you.
When this team is on they can compete with any team in the nation.
Expanding on the above Auburn is on quite a roll right now.
They have won four in a row, covering each time, while scoring a ton of points. Coach Malzahn was on the hot seat but now this team can be a factor down the stretch.
Malzahn has the running game killing opponents – they are third in the nation at just over 300 yards per game. Last week against Arkansas they rushed for 543 yards, that was Arkansas, the Razorbacks, not Arkansas State.
The way they are going right now nobody wants to play these guys.
Though the offense will always grab headlines it is the defense that has been just as good.
They are third in the nation in scoring defense, held Clemson to just 19 points in the opener and have not allowed a league opponent to reach 30 – A&M got close with 29.
Carl Lawson is one of the most disruptive defensive players in the country.
The offense has to account for him on every play.
Ole Miss Rebels
Ole Miss desperately needs a win.
They are not going to be a player in terms of the SEC West or more but losing at home never sits well with a restless fan base. The defense which has been so instrumental in their recent success has disappeared.
They are giving up 31ppg for the season and in their losses they are giving up more like 40. Chad Kelly still might be the best QB in the conference but that is a lot of scoring for the offense to try and overcome.
That formula has not been working.
Kelly is once again putting up good numbers but he has been erratic.
Beginning with the opener – three picks against FSU – his turnovers have been pivotal in losses. However, the kid threw for more than 400 yards with three TDs against Alabama.
Not many guys can do that. The running game is lame once again too – 93rd in the country. He is their entire offense right now.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Prediction
Before the season started I definitely would have been on the side of the home team but their recent struggles have me skeptical.
On paper it looks like they just might get steamrolled by that Auburn offense and whatever Kelly and Co. can do won’t matter.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Auburn -4.5
Auburn is looking like a runaway freight train at the moment. The way their offense is humming even Alabama might have trouble with them.
I do get a little nervous about things shifting so much over just a couple of weeks but the Rebels are not inspiring much confidence these days.
