One of the highlights of the upcoming college football season has to be Week 13, as that is when we get to see a number of the big rivalry games played. Week 13 is going to prove to be very unlucky for some, but for others, it may well be the final push that sees them into the playoffs. One team that will feel as though they have a shot to be in the mix at this stage of the season are the Ole Miss Rebels. Sure they are in the extremely tough SEC West, but they have great coaching, as well as a proven QB in Chad Kelly. If they have any chance of making it into the final 4 of the college football playoff this year, they need to take advantage of their home games, and one of the most important of those will be the Egg Bowl match-ups against their bitter rivals, the Mississippi State Bulldogs. The college football predictions in this one has to go to the Rebels, but rivalry games routinely have a way of not going as planned.

Why bet on the Mississippi State Bulldogs
If you want to have an idea of just how tough life is in the SEC, look no further than the Mississippi State Bulldogs in 2015. They finished the season with a 9-4 record, which would be the envy of many a program, but all 4 of those losses came at the hands of conference foes, including a 38-27 loss to the Ole Miss Rebels. Losing to LSU, Texas A&M, Alabama, and Ole Miss is certainly not something to be ashamed of, but it perfectly details how difficult life is in the SEC West. It’s going to be another tough slog this season, and it doesn’t help that this meeting comes on the road, where they have only managed 1 win in their last 5 games versus the Rebels.
Why bet on the Ole Miss Rebels
Ole Miss put together double digit wins with a 10-3 record in 2015, but they will be looking to go a little better this time around. In order to do that, they are going to have to maintain their solid play on home field. The rebels were a very good 6-1 at home last season, with the lone defeat coming late in the season in OT against Arkansas. This is a team that has been knocking on the door for a couple of years now, and if they can get past Alabama in the West, there is no reason why they cannot get to the SEC Championship game and a potential playoff spot.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
The Ole Miss Rebels have won the Egg Bowl in 3 of the last 4 years, and there is nothing to suggest that they cannot do it again this year. They have the edge in just about every department, so let’s give them the win in this one.
