Bold predictions are back for the week 11 game against Georgia. Facing the back-to-back college football champions means that the usual easy targets are seen as bold takes. Will the below predictions help towards a win for Ole Miss?
Ole Miss win the game
Winning a game in college football isn’t usually a bold take between power 5 opponents. However, when its Georgia, it takes on a whole new level of getting a win.
The Bulldogs are on a 26 game winning streak, a stat that shows how difficult a win over Georgia can be. The Rebels are 10.5 point dogs in this game, again it shows you how much Vegas feel Ole Miss are up against it.
A win for the Rebels would be totally against everybody’s predictions, apart from the Hotty Toddy fanbase. It would be miraculous, however, if anybody’s team can, its a Lane Kiffin side.
Rebels defense holds Georgia to 20 points or less
If Ole Miss pull this off, they have a massive chance of getting a famous win. Since 2021, the Bulldogs have only scored less than 20 points twice, winning both games in the process.
That was with the countries best defense in both the 2021 and 2022 season. This season’s Georgia defense is very good, but not at that level. The Bulldogs defense have also gave up 20 or more points in 5 of their 9 games this season.
This season Kirby Smarts side are averaging 38.3 points per game, hitting 30 or above points in 7 out of the 9 games. Holding Georgia to under 20 points is very bold and will be difficult to do in Athens.
Tre Harris over 200 receiving yards
Tre Harris had the best game of his collegiate career last weekend against Texas A&M. Harris had 213 receiving yards from 11 catches, with tons of explosive plays.
Georgia have had numerous opposing receivers go for 100 yards plus in games against them. Ohio State had two 100 yard receiving players against them in the 2022 college football playoff semi final. However, it’s been a long while since an opponent had 200 receiving yards against them.
It’s going to take a fair amount of explosive plays for Harris to have back-to-back 200 yard receiving games. On last week’s showing, Harris is capable, but it will be a tough ask against a good d Georgia secondary.
