Ole Miss will be the underdog in Athens Saturday. That’s nothing new. What is new is the confidence the Rebels (5-3, 2-2 SEC) will carry with them into the underdog role.
The belief and excitement that comes from two-straight conference wins may or may not make the ultimate difference against a top 10 opponent on the road.
While the game is important for both teams, it’s important for other reasons for Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze. The game off the field, recruiting, is never far away.
