The Ole Miss Rebels and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets are set to square off in a college football matchup on Saturday afternoon in Atlanta. With that said, it’s a good time to check out our college football odds series, which includes an Ole Miss-Georgia Tech prediction and pick, laid out below.

Ole Miss has gone 2-0 on the season, taking care of both Troy and Central Arkansas by a combined score of 87-13. Head coach Lane Kiffin has navigated the quarterback change with Matt Corral making the leap to the NFL. Ole Miss has yet to be tested this season, and will not be until Kentucky in week five.

Georgia Tech rebounded from a season-opening blowout loss to Clemson to defeat Western Carolina at home in their second game. Now, a second straight home game will bring Ole Miss, a considerably tougher opponent than Western Carolina. Jeff Collins desperately needs a signature win to ignite the fanbase.
