Ole Miss bowl projections after 7-2 start
Ole Miss got a huge 27-19 road win against Auburn this past Saturday to keep the Rebels in control of their own destiny in the SEC West.
The win marked back-to-back solid performances for Ole Miss, which looks to earn its third straight victory against Arkansas on Saturday. If the Rebels do that, Ole Miss gets a much-needed bye week before hosting LSU on Nov. 21 in what could be a proverbial SEC West championship game.
If all of that happens, the bowl projections are sure to be turned upside down.
