With the National Championship looming in the back of all of our minds, the Ole Miss Rebels cannot afford another sub par performance.

Currently in ninth place according to the latest Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook odds, here is this week’s order to win the title game:

Ohio State 5-2
Baylor 5
Clemson 12
Alabama 12
Texas A&M 12
TCU 15
Utah 15

(Interesting that undefeated Florida is a 50-1 shot)

What is working in the Rebs’ favor is the fact they have already defeated one of the top ten favorites. Each and every game from this point forward is huge not only for the final four, but also all the other major bowls. Winning and winning impressively is critical for those teams pursuing the “elite status.”

Although Memphis is undefeated and is having an exceptional year, the experts believe Ole Miss is roughly two touchdowns better. Should the Rebels leave Memphis with a quality victory, they can anticipate moving up on the food chain before the final five SEC opponents appear.
