Breaking down and analyzing the 2018 Ole Miss Rebels football schedule.
2018 Ole Miss Rebels Football Schedule Analysis
– There isn’t a bowl game to play for – again – so the Rebels have to take advantage of big moments of national prominence. Starting out the season against Texas Tech – played in Houston – will have to qualify. With Southern Illinois, Kent State and ULM as the other four non-conference games. the Rebels might have a nice base of four wins, or be 3-1, at worst.
– The Rebels have to play Alabama no matter what, so they might as well get it out of the way in the SEC opener, especially at home. Going to LSU and Arkansas in the next two conference games won’t be easy, but Auburn is up next in Oxford before getting a week off to relax. Best of all vs. the teams from the West, the Egg Bowl vs. Mississippi State is at home.
– There’s no Georgia to deal with from the East, and while they might be down, not playing Florida or Tennessee is always a positive. South Carolina is a good team from the other division, but at least it’s a home game for the Rebels, and going to Vanderbilt isn’t all that bad.
