The No. 9-ranked Arkansas Razorbacks are one of the more underrated teams in the SEC, and they will show just how good they are when they beat up on the Ole Miss Rebels this weekend.
While Ole Miss is a school built on tradition, they are one of the worst teams in the nation and are making no friends with SEC faithful by dragging them down with their poor play.
Where: Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, Oxford, Mississippi
When: Saturday, October 22, 12:21 p.m. EDT
Watch: SEC Network and ESPN 3
Spread: Ole Miss +15.5
Even with the enormous 15.5-point spread, there is nothing that Ole Miss has shown all season that tells me they can stop the Razorbacks. This game is going to get ugly with Arkansas scoring early and often.
The SEC is one of the better defensive conferences in the entire college football realm, and this will be an absolute war. While Ole Miss gives up a ton of points, I don’t think the teams will combine for 55. It will be close, though.

BCS/Top 25 Poll Implications
While Ole Miss has no hope of making any noise in the polls or even in the SEC, Aransas has a real chance to move up in the rankings with a stellar performance. If the Razorbacks can run the score up on the Rebels, they will make a good showing for the BCS computer to promote them higher in the rankings.
Keys to an Arkansas Win
The key every week for the Arkansas Razorbacks is which incarnation of Tyler Wilson will show up on game day. If Arkansas gets the quarterback who can sling the ball all over the field, the razorbacks will win with ease.
Keys to an Ole Miss Win
The Razorbacks' bus needs to break down. While I am just joking, there isn’t too much the Ole Miss Rebels can do to stop the point onslaught they will face when they square off with Arkansas on Saturday.
Prediction: Arkansas 41, Ole Miss 13
