Auburn (1-4) @ Ole Miss (3-3)
Auburn is a team on the verge of completely falling apart. While there have been fleeting moments of improvement on defense, at no time has this team stopped an opponent from scoring in a crucial situation. Conversely, the Tigers offense has rarely answered the bell either and is not even effective enough to be one dimensional.
Ole Miss, on the other hand, has been impressive under first year head coach Hugh Freeze. While they have a long way to go, they play with speed and with a plan, which is two things Auburn clearly doesn’t have. Ole Miss’s defense is nothing to write home about and it may be close for a bit, but Ole Miss has the speed to pull away in the second half and drop Auburn this weekend.

Kentucky (1-5) @ Arkansas (2-4)
Arkansas may be a mess but they aren’t nearly the mess Kentucky is. The Wildcats do nothing well except do nothing well and there’s nothing in terms of matchups that favors the Big Blue. Arkansas continues the showcase for new coaching personnel and notches another conference win, albeit against another one of the conference’s worst teams. Hey, take them as you can get them, right?
