Ole Miss (0-0) vs Louisville (0-0) Game Preview

Why Ole Miss Will Win

The offense is going to be devastating.

The Rebels ripped it up last year as QB Matt Corral grew into the gig, and now he has a veteran offensive line to work behind. Best of all for head coach Lane Kiffin and his offense …

Ole Miss might actually play a little defense this year, too.

Expect plenty of home runs, lots of momentum swings, and a big-time performance by a veteran Ole Miss team loaded with super seniors – Louisville has a bunch, too, by the way. The Rebel attack will keep on coming, and the D will break serve just enough to push ahead in the second half.
