Ole Miss vs. Memphis prediction roundtable with the Campus Insiders staff. Breaking down what will happen in Saturday’s game as the Rebels seek revenge against the Tigers.


Jeff Bartl

This is one of the more intriguing matchups of the weekend. Memphis is fresh off hanging 77 points – and 635 total yards – on Bowling Green and has outscored opponents 155-27 during a 3-0 start. Had Ole Miss not blown two sizable leads to Florida State and Alabama, it would be 4-0 and in the discussion for the College Football Playoff. The Rebels seem to be getting on track, though, after crushing Georgia last week, and Chad Kelly hasn’t thrown a pick since the opener against the Seminoles.

Kelly tossed two interceptions in last year’s upset loss to the Tigers, who got a big game from Paxton Lynch. Riley Ferguson is good, but he’s no Lynch – or Kelly. It’ll be interesting for about two and a half quarters, but Ole Miss will end up pulling away.

Jonathan Bass

By season’s end, Ole Miss very well might be that precarious two-loss program whose CFP merits people are debating. Two bad halves have cost them two games. Still, last week showed what kind of team this can be when its head is screwed on straight. Memphis hasn’t slipped nearly as much as was expected with the departures of coach and starting quarterback; however Ole Miss is just that much better. Rebels win running away.

Robert Judin

Sure, the Tigers won last year, but there are two problems for Memphis this time around: no Justin Fuente, no Paxton Lynch. The Rebels will finally play 60 minutes of football, and Chad Kelly will have a big game. Of course, Ole Miss wishes it would have played all four quarters against FSU and Alabama. It’ll pick up a win here because the Tigers don’t stand a chance.

Dave Miller

The Rebels are looking for revenge after Justin Fuente’s Tigers came out victorious in last year’s meeting. Fuente is gone, but Memphis remains a tough out. I think the Tigers will be able to move the football fairly well in the first half, but it will be different story in the third and fourth quarters. Hugh Freeze will make the necessary second-half adjustments, while Chad Kelly and the Rebels offense overwhelms the Tigers in the third and fourth quarters.

Brian Stultz

Revenge is a dish best served cold over bloody Mary’s in a tent with a chandelier in the Grove. After being upset by Memphis last season, Ole Miss and Chad Kelly will pour it on as they prove once again that they are the best two-loss team in the nation.

Tom Crean Deserved Better From Indiana

Tom Crean rebuilt the Indiana program, then became a victim of his own success. The school's administration - and the Hoosiers' fan base - owed him more than an undeserved dismissal.
