Week 9 college football sees the Rebels and Tigers meet at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
The Tigers are favored by 2.5 points in this SEC matchup and we see a 66 showing on the total.
Auburn is coming off their bye week coming into this affair which gives them some extra time to prepare for the Ole Miss offense. Oh, it’s only the 3rd ranked rushing offense that also ranks 3rd in total yards and 7th in points put on the board! The Tigers have won 3 of the last 4 games with a loss to Georgia accounting for that L in conference play.
Ole Miss won their first 3 games, lost to Alabama, and has another 3-game win streak riding into this weekend although the Rebels have struggled with Auburn plenty over the years. The Tigers are 34 – 10 in 44 meetings and have taken the last 5 wins between them.
This is also a clash of two teams ranked inside the top-25 with each only having 1 loss in conference play headed to this Saturday affair on Jorden-Hare. The line setters expect a tightly contested game so let’s see if that is what we will get on Saturday.
While everyone was talking about Coach O leaving LSU at the end of the season, no one in Oxford really gives a damn as Ole Miss took it to the Tigers 31 – 17 last weekend. The Rebs dawned the baby-blue jerseys and got down 7 – 0 early to the Tigers but that changed in a big way as the game carried on.
Ole Miss scored the next five times and took a 31 – 7 lead to the 4th quarter and LSU only made the score look better on paper with 10 4th quarter points. Matt Corral is certainly having himself quite the season and his name is being attached to plenty of post-season awards to be announced up the road.
Corral only had 5 incompletions against LSU going 18 for 23 with 185 yards throwing for one score to Casey Kelly who only caught 2 passes all day. Snoop Connor was one of 4 players with double-digit carries which includes Corral who scampered into the end zone with his legs as well.
Connor ended the day with 14 totes for 117 yards, Jerrion Ealy carried the ball 12 for 97 yards with a trip to the end zone, and Henry Parrish Jr. rushed for 32 yards from 10 carries while also finding the end zone in the game.
Ole Miss leading receiver Dontario Drummond caught 8 balls for 93 yards and he threw a ball to his QB for 18 yards to boot.
The Ole Miss defense was relentlessly putting pressure on Max Johnson as he fumbled twice and threw a pick while only going 13 for 21 for LSU on the day.
This place has never been a fun trip to make for the Rebels as they are 1 – 7 at Jordan-Hare since the 2004 season.
Head Coach Byran Harsin may or may not be vaccinated and that is the talk all around campus this week as the Tigers prep for the back end of their schedule that is loaded! The Tigers play Ole Miss this weekend and still have dates with Texas A&M, Miss State, and Alabama, of course, for the Iron Bowl to end the regular season.
The Tigers have made 8 straight bowl game appearances but Hansin knows how to get his team prepared after his time at Boise State. Hansin got Boise to the post-season throughout his tenure in Idaho and now he is one game away from getting Auburn to a bowl game again.
Bo Nix was outstanding last weekend as he only had 5 balls dropped himself going 21 for 26 with 292 yards throwing for a pair of TDs. The 38 – 23 final score against Arkansas last time out was a result of a strong 4th quarter that saw the Tigers pull away late in the game. It was 28 – 23 going to the final frame as Nix ran for a 23-yard touchdown that sealed the deal.
The Tigers offense is ranked 31st in the land in total yards averaging 448.1 per game and the defense ranks 30th in scoring allowing only 19.7 PPG.

4* Free Week 9 NCAA Betting Final Analysis:
This is the game the Ole Miss defense costs the team a game because they have a lot of room for improvement and not much time to prepare. The Tigers have had two weeks to prepare for this game although that could always backfire too. I smell a Tigers victory here and we have less than a field goal line to deal with. So be it…
