Rebels, Eagles should win easily

The Rebels are 16 points favorites. This is likely because the Tigers have won victories over Kansas, Bowling Green, and Southeast Missouri State. The Tigers have not played anyone like Alabama or Florida State, which have both beaten Ole Miss. Georgia was also beaten by the Rebels. Ole Miss is more talented than Memphis on both ends of the ball and will still feel the pain from last year’s Memphis matchup. It will be Ole Miss 45 and Memphis 24. I didn’t know Rice was leading its all-time series with Southern Miss 4-2, until I found it online. In recent years, Rice has been USM’s number one. Last season, the Owls were beaten by the Golden Eagles at Houston 65-10. Although the game in Hattiesburg will not be as close, USM should win comfortably. It seems that the point spread (20%) is about right. Rice 21, Southern Miss 42. Tennessee is a 4-point selection at Georgia, which was clobbered last week at Oxford. If the Vols play like they did in last week’s second half, they will be able to cover the point between the hedges. Georgia’s Kirby Smart still has much to do. Tennessee 30, Georgia 20. The Missouri Tigers will be Coach Orgeron’s interim head coach debut. Although I don’t know how he can improve LSU’s offense within a week, I believe he will have LSU ready for play. LSU 24, Missouri 13. Today’s big game in the nation is from ACC. In a matchup between dynamic quarterbacks, Louisville is two points ahead of Clemson. Lamar Jackson is the superior quarterback. That’s why I would have chosen the Cardinals. Lee Corso picked Clemson, and that sealed it. Louisville 41, Clemson 38.
