What to Know
The Ole Miss Rebels and the Arkansas Razorbacks are set to square off in an SEC matchup at 3:30 p.m. ET Oct. 17 at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this game.
It was all tied up 21-21 at halftime, but Ole Miss was not quite the Alabama Crimson Tide’s equal in the second half when they met last week. The Rebels took a 63-48 bruising from Bama. Yes, you read that final score correctly. And yes, they were playing football. Despite their defeat, Ole Miss got to see several of their players rise to the challenge and make noteworthy plays. RB Snoop Conner, who rushed for two TDs and 128 yards on 21 carries, was the best among equals.
Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for Arkansas as they fell 30-28 to the Auburn Tigers last week. Despite the loss, Arkansas got a solid performance out of QB Feleipe Franks, who passed for four TDs and 318 yards on 30 attempts.
This next contest is expected to be close, with the Rebels going off at just a 1.5-point favorite. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
The losses bumped both teams down to an identical 1-2. Two
