Both teams finished their regular season with a 7-5 mark in 2013. You will have a hard time finding a team that played a tougher schedule than Ole Miss. The team faced Texas in the non-conference season and won 44-23 on the road. In the SEC play they have a road win at Vanderbilt and a home victory against the LSU Tigers. They played Texas A&M at home tough losing by three points. They were competitive against Missouri, Mississippi St and at Auburn. They held the high octane Auburn Tigers offense to just 30 points. Mississippi has the number 21st ranked offense this season as the team puts up 473 yards per game. Those numbers came up against a very difficult schedule so this Rebels team needs to be upgraded when they play out of conference in this spot. Ole Miss has a junior quarterback in Bo Wallace who is experienced as he started as a sophomore. So Wallace has put in two regular seasons of play as an SEC starting quarterback entering their bowl game. Georgia Tech had bad losses by huge margins to Clemson, at BYU and at Miami on the season. They have a 17-10 home defeat to Virginia Tech. This is a one dimensional option team that has success against bad teams with weak defense. This Georgia Tech offense has to face a quality SEC club. Georgia Tech on defense feasted on weak teams and was pounded by good clubs. Even a Georgia team rattled by injuries took a backup quarterback into Georgia Tech and put up 41 points and came away with a win over the Yellow Jackets.
With our college football pick for Monday we will play on the Mississippi Rebels -3 points against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at online sportsbooks.
