SEC Upset Predictions: Today’s Pick

Ole Miss over LSU: This Week 8 match-up sees the Bayou Bengals rolling into Oxford for this rivalry game. Ole’ Miss is a team with a lot of buzz surrounding them due to their excellent year recruiting, and solid core of returning starters, which includes their quarterback Bo Wallace. Wallace was overlooked last year and managed to put up respectable numbers in the nation’s toughest conference, finishing the season with 3,384 total yards of offense. Mind you that was all without the #1 WR recruit Laquon Treadwell, who will be expected to have a Sammy Watkins esque role in this year’s offence. Yet,  It will not be the new talent that will win this game for the Rebels, rather the mental state LSU will be in heading into this week. The Tigers schedule is such that they may very well roll into this game undefeated, with a match-up with the defending National Champions Alabama Crimson Tide two weeks away. This is a game ripe for the upset. Expect an electric atmosphere in Oxford and a quick start by the Rebels.
