Auburn Tigers vs Ole Miss Rebels
College Football Week 8: Saturday, October 20th 2018 12:00 PM EST TIME
The Auburn Tigers are looking for a statement game as they need one badly as they come into this game with two straight losses. On the other side, the Ole Miss Rebels are starting to get some momentum on the season as they have a two game winning streak heading into Saturday. Which streak will come to an end on Saturday?
Tigers Lost At The Moment
The Auburn Tigers are currently lost at the moment as they head into game looking for a much-needed victory. The Tigers started off the season with some flare under their tail as they had a two game winning streak following their loss against LSU, but all has come to an end right now. The Tigers have a two game losing streak with horrible losses against the Mississippi State Bulldogs and Tennessee Volunteers at home. Auburn is known for their passing game, however they are forced to shorten the playbook in half to just big plays as they have been falling behind early and often. Their recent loss against the Vols was a big one as it was their first loss to them since 1999. The defense is starting to open up some new wounds as those will come into play on Saturday.

Ready To Rumble With Rebels
The Ole Miss Rebels have been a fun team to watch as of late as they come into this game with winning two straight games and are looking for their third one to be an impressive upset win against one of their rivals. Looking at this Rebels team, they are undefeated in my eyes as their two losses of the season came at the hands of #1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide and #5 ranked LSU Tigers. Both very impressive teams, however besides those games the Rebels have looked like a underrated team. So why do they deserve more credit? Well let’s take a look at their super power of an offense.

The Rebels have one of the best offenses in college football as they come into this game with averaging the 5th-most total yards per game which is 550 yards per game. They also rank in the 4th spot in CFB with having the most passing yards per game with 353 yards per game. Simple perfect. Their QB Jordan Ta’amu has been the leader of this team and he can easily led this team against a Tigers team that has been beat up and left on the side of the curb. Ta’amu is a dual threat quarterback which will hurt the Tigers on the ground, but as stated above he can also do it in the air. He currently has 2,298 passing yards on the season with 15 touchdowns.
