Ole Miss Rebels
The Rebels are riding high after surviving a Week 5 matchup with a top-ten Kentucky Wildcats squad. They get to breathe a bit with a lackluster Vanderbilt team on Saturday. The Commodores are not as bad as they were the last time these two teams met, but that isn’t saying much.
The Rebels have been leaning on their rushing game lately and should continue to find success in this matchup. Ole Miss ranks 13th in yards per rush and third in yards per game on the ground. Meanwhile, Vandy is outside the top 100 in rushing defense, with an average of 4.57 yards per carry. There is no need to complicate this game. The Rebels should be able to run the ball at will and take care of business on the road.
The Commodores may be outmatched, but they have one advantage over Ole Miss heading into Week 6. Vanderbilt’s last game was on September 24th, so the Commodores had a week to rest and plan for this matchup. It’s worth noting they got crushed by Alabama 55-3 in that game.
While the Commodores have a rest advantage, they will need much more to keep this game close. Vanderbilt is 0-2 against the spread against ranked teams after losing by 52 to the Crimson Tide and 20 to Wake Forest.
The biggest issue heading into Week 6 for the Commodores is an awful rushing defense. They rank 103rd in the nation in yards per carry allowed and 75th in yards per game. With the Rebels’ top-ten rushing attack, they are primed for a huge day on the ground.

Ole Miss vs Vanderbilt Prediction
Ole Miss is a good bet to win and cover this game solely based on their mismatch on the ground. The Rebels have one of the country’s best rushing attacks, and the Commodores’ defense ranks 103rd in yards per carry. We expect the Rebels to run all over this defense and win handily.
