Ole Miss vs. Arkansas preview:

Ole Miss had a tough start to the season when it drew then No. 4 Florida State in its first game. The Rebels dropped that game and a tight contest against Alabama for their two losses on the season. Other than those two tough losses, the Rebels have been outstanding. They get another tough SEC matchup against No. 22 Arkansas and still have two more ranked opponents to play after that. Life in the SEC.

Arkansas has been just as good, and just as unlucky as Ole Miss. The Razorbacks have lost back-to-back SEC games coming against No. 10 Texas A&M and No. 1 Alabama. The loss to Alabama started a stretch in which the Razorbacks play four consecutive games against ranked opponents.

Ole Miss and Arkansas have played 63 times in history, with the Razorbacks owning a 34-28-1 advantage. 

Ole Miss vs. Arkansas prediction:

The Razorbacks won last year's game in a 53-52 shootout. This year, both teams are hoping to avoid their third loss on the season. It's tough to pick a loser here, because both teams deserve to ave a better record than they currently own. The perils of playing in the SEC.

Ole Miss has been the better team so far this year and its offense is firing on all cylinders. That gives the Rebels the advantage in this contest that should be another shootout.
