Ole Miss Rebels Football Schedule Analysis: If the Rebels can get by Arkansas at home and win the Lane-Kiffin-probably-should-be-the-head-man game at Tennessee, it’s going to be a huge start before hosting LSU.

Louisville is an interesting game to start, and Liberty should be a tough out in early November, but anything but 4-0 in non-conference play won’t be okay. Playing Tennessee and Vanderbilt from the East and missing Florida and Georgia … Merry Christmas. Getting three straight home games in November is an even bigger break.

Best Case Scenario: 9-3. Start with missing the top teams from the East. If the Rebels beat Tennessee and Vandy, and also take care of Louisville, that’s six wins right there considering the rest of the soft non-conference slate. Take care of Arkansas at home, beat Mississippi State on the road, and pull off an upset, and a nine-win season is doable.

Worst Case Scenario: 4-8. If the Rebels drop that date with Louisville and lose at Tennessee, there’s a problem. In a worst case scenario, they lose the winnable games at Mississippi State and to Arkansas, and aren’t even in the discussion against the big boys on the slate.
