With the week 10 college football slate all done and dusted, the week 11 game between Ole Miss and Georgia got a confirmed gametime for this coming Saturday.
After Ole Miss took care of business against Texas A&M, Georgia outlasted Missouri to set up a mouth-watering game in week 11. It will be a big SEC game, that will have ramifications on the top 10 rankings.
With the game being televised on ESPN, the tv broadcasting team decided the game needed a primetime slot. Gametime will be 6:00pm CT/5:00pm ET under the lights in Athens.
Not only that, the ESPN College Gameday cameras will be there early for the build-up towards the opening kick-offs on Saturday Nov 11.
With the new AP Poll rankings being announced earlier today, they now have the Rebels ranked 10, with Georgia ranked number 1. With the second week of CFP Rankings announced Tuesday, it is very likely this will be a top ten match-up.
It’s not a surprise the gametime has been bumped to an evening time slot, with the game result impacting the playoffs and the SEC Conference.
If Ole Miss want to clinch the SEC West, they will need to win out and hope Alabama drop 2 games from their final three. With one of them a cupcake against Chattanooga, they will be asking for favours from Kentucky and Auburn.
They will know where they stand before heading onto the field against Georgia, as Alabama have a Noon ET kick-off on Saturday. However, even if Bama take the victory Saturday, the Rebels still have a slim shot of a playoff spot.
A win against number 1 ranked Georgia would be a big boost to their chances. Yes, other teams above will need to slip up, but it would not be out of the question.
The game against the Bulldogs on Saturday night is going to be special and will go down in history if the Rebels can get the win.
