The 13th ranked Arkansas Razorbacks will travel to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium to take on the 17th ranked Ole Miss Rebels this Saturday afternoon in College Football action.

The 13th ranked Arkansas Razorbacks has their 4-game winning streak snapped and dropped to 4-1 on the season after being defeated by the 2nd-ranked Georgia Bulldogs, 37-0, this past Saturday. Arkansas could get nothing going on the offensive end against Georgia and could not fight back after falling behind by a 21-0 margin late in the 1st quarter. Arkansas was outgained by Georgia by a 345-162 margin and didn’t force a turnover in the loss. Leading the way for the Razorbacks was KJ Jefferson who completed 8 for 13 passes for 65 yards.

On the season, Arkansas is averaging 28.6 ppg on 416.4 total yards per game (192.6 passing yds/g; 223.8 rushing yds/g).

The 17th ranked Ole Miss Rebels dropped to 3-1 on the season after being defeated by the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide, 42-21, this past Saturday. Ole Miss struggled offensively against the Alabama defense in the 1st half and could not fight back after going into halftime by a 28-0 margin. Ole Miss was outgained by Alabama by a 451-291 margin and committed 1 turnover in the loss. Leading the way for the Rebels was QB Matt Corral who completed 21 of 29 passes for 213 yards & 1 TD while also rushing for 1 TD.

The Razorbacks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall, however, are just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS loss. The Rebels are 6-1-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

Both Arkansas and Ole Miss look to rebound after tough losses to arguably the top two teams in the country in Georgia & Alabama, however, I think Ole Miss is the team to back in this one. Arkansas has had a great start to their season, however, their whole offense is heavily relied upon KJ Jefferson who just hasn’t looked the same since injuring this leg late in their Texas A&M victory. Ole Miss struggled a bit against the Alabama defense, however, I think they will be able to find more success at home against the Razorbacks and as I think Arkansas is going to struggle offensively in this one, I’m taking Ole Miss to cover this mid-range spread. Good Luck!
