I considered the Sam Houston State Bearkats and the points, but their offense has been so sluggish out of the gate that I just couldn't pull the trigger. The Ole Miss Rebels should be a little more focused after almost losing to Detroit, and they need a better effort overall before going on the road to play Temple. Ole Miss and its defense should be the difference in this contest. I'll lay the reasonable number with Ole Miss at home.
