Every year it happens. A well known team loses to an BCS squad and all the doomsayers come out of the woodwork. That’s exactly what has happened to Mississippi. This is a team coming off back to back 9-4 seasons that had dominated Jacksonville State on the scoreboard in the first half leading 31-10 at intermission. Talk about a team on a mission this week and you find the Ole Miss Rebels. Mississippi was 3-0 ATS last year against non-conference foes covering each game by double digits.
Tulane hasn’t made any progress since the signing of Bob Toledo in 2007. The Green Wave has posted a 9-27 record in his tenure including 6-13 overall at home. Tulane is on a 5-13-1 spread run in the home dog role. This team has one of the worst home field advantages in the nation. The lineup is loaded with freshmen at key positions. Two linebackers, the kicker and punter all all extremely young and untested. The offensive line lacks depth which is really a problem going against a fired up SEC squad. Tulane lost at home last year to Tulsa by 24, BYU by 51 and Houston by 28. A very similar outcome is to be expected on Saturday.
