The Kentucky Wildcats will play the Mississippi Rebels in a SEC Game on Saturday afternoon at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in Oxford, Mississippi.

The Kentucky Wildcats are 4-0 this season after they defeated Northern Illinois by a score of 31-23 in their last game. Kentucky struggled in this game more than I thought they would, but was able to come out with the 8-point win. The Kentucky offense is averaging 31.3 points per game with 296.3 rushing yards per game and 81.5 rushing yards per game. Will Levis has thrown for 1,185 yards, 10 touchdowns, and four interceptions for the Wildcats this season. Kavosiey Smoke has rushed for 263 yards and one touchdown, while Tayvion Robinson has caught 20 passes for 349 yards and two scores for Kentucky. The Kentucky defense is allowing 13 points per game and 272 yards per game.

The Mississippi Rebels are 4-0 this season after they defeated Tulsa by a score of 35-27 in their last game. Ole Miss led this game by a score of 35-17 at halftime, but was unable to score in the second half. The Ole Miss offense is averaging 41 points per game with 207.3 passing yards per game and 280.8 rushing yards per game. Jaxson Dart has thrown for 697 yards, five touchdowns, and two interceptions, while also rushing for 201 yards for the Rebels this season. Quinshon Judkins has rushed for 429 yards and five scores, while Jonathan Mingo has caught 12 passes for 257 yards and one touchdown for Mississippi. The Ole Miss defense is giving up 10 points per game and 312.5 yards per game.

Kentucky is 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games and 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 conference games. The under is 11-4 in Kentucky’s last 15 road games. Ole Miss is 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 games against a team with a winning record and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The under is 7-1 in Ole Miss’ last 8 home games.

This is a matchup between two undefeated, ranked SEC teams, but we do not know much about Ole Miss due to their easy schedule so far. Kentucky defeated Florida earlier in the year, but also struggled with Northern Illinois and Miami (OH). I do think we are going to see some points in this game, similar to the Ole Miss game last week. I like the over here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
