This will be a matchup of two teams who mad much loftier aspirations coming into this season. The Ole Miss Rebels had one of the nation’s top recruiting classes, and seemed poised to make a move towards toppling Alabama at the top of the SEC’s West Division. The Rebels finished with a record of 7-5, going 3-5 in the SEC.
Georgia Tech also was looking to move up in the ACC’s Coastal Division this year, but a three-game losing streak early in the year, including two ACC coastal opponents, dashed their hopes early on. The Yellow Jackets finished with a record of 7-5, going 5-3 in the ACC.
Ole Miss Key Wins: #16 LSU (27-24)
Georgia Tech Key Wins: #24 Duke (38-14)
Ole Miss loves to throw the ball, finishing third in the SEC in passing offense with 285.6 yards per game. Junior quarterback Bo Wallace had moments of greatness this season, but at times looked completely ineffective. They are lead on defense by junior DB Cody Prewitt, who led the SEC with six interceptions this season.
Georgia Tech, of course, will run the ball and run it some more against the Rebels. The Yellow Jackets ranked first in the ACC in both rushing offense and rushing touchdowns (311.7 yards per game and 45 touchdowns, respectively), and third in scoring offense (36.6 points per game). Defensively the Jackets were second in rush defense and fourth in scoring defense in the country. Led by senior DE Jeremiah Attaochu, the Tech front seven will try to make a long day for the Rebels’ Wallace.
