Game Prediction: Texas Vs. Ole Miss

It’s gameday across the nation. It’s time for my game prediction for Texas-Ole Miss.

When Texas has the ball:

Case McCoy will start for the Texas Longhorns against Ole Miss tonight. He can make some big plays for the Longhorns and for the other team. I don’t trust him to make the right decisions and especially on out routes. Tyrone Swoopes might have his redshirt burned and that might be a good thing. Texas needs to play their playmakers. With Daje Johnson out of the lineup, I expect Jalen Overstreet to get lots of work from the running back and wide receiver position. He will fill the void that Daje Johnson leaves tonight. I am not that impressed with Ole Miss’s defense but I am more confidence in Ole Miss’s defense than I do of Case McCoy.

Advantage: Ole Miss

When Ole Miss has the ball:

Ole Miss runs an up tempo offense and they run a number of zone read plays. Bo Wallace had over 600 yards rushing last year. Add in receivers like LaQuon Treadwell and Donte Moncrief, it might be a long night for the Texas defense.

Advantage: Ole Miss


Despite the advantages being in Ole Miss’s favor, football is a week to week game. Each week, the team looks different from what it looked like in previous weeks. It’s one of the benefits of playing weekly instead of every day or every other day. With that being said, knowing what we know now, it’s tough to predict an outcome for this game. Ole Miss was impressive against Vanderbilt, but how good is Vanderbilt? Ole Miss might have talent but most of it is freshman. So can they pull off the upset? Yes. Can I predict it? No.

Ole Miss wins 42-24
