    Ole Miss has been great so far this season. After sleepwalking through the first three quarters in the Georgia Dome against Boise State, they’ve been completely dominant in wins over the Broncos, Vanderbilt and UL-Lafayette. The offense has gotten better each week, and the defense has played lights out.

    On the other hand, the Tigers have looked very good in wins over Austin Peay and Middle Tennessee, and lost to UCLA just 42-35 in Westwood. That’s the same Bruins squad that dominated No. 15 Arizona State 62-27 on the road last night. Memphis has scored 44.7 points per game behind an average of 498 yards per contest, and has allowed opponents to score only 19.7 through the first three games of the season.

    The Rebels should win, but three touchdowns is a lot.
