Ole Miss is off to a hot start this season, can it win its final tune up game ahead of a difficult conference schedule in the SEC?

The Rebels throttled one of the worst Power 5 teams in the country in Georgia Tech, and now host Tulsa, a frisky AAC team that will look to play spoiler ahead of Ole Miss' SEC opener against Kentucky next week.

What can we expect from the Golden Hurricanes on the road? Let's check out the odds from FanDuel Sportsbook:

Tulsa vs. Ole Miss Prediction and Pick

This should be a back and forth affair with plenty of possessions. The Rebels are top 10 in plays per minute this season while Tulsa checks in at 35th.

I expect Ole Miss continues to round into form on the offensive end is probably underrated moving into SEC play. This is a team that is full of transfers at skill positions, including quarterback, and has needed time to gel. While Georgia Tech is a terrible defense, Ole Miss still averaged nearly seven yards per play.

Tulsa's defense lost a ton of production from last season, including their defensive coordinator, and it has showed. The team allowed 40 points to Wyoming and 35 to Northern Illinois. Now it faces a far more talented roster that wants to play fast, expect points.

On the other side, Tulsa may struggle against SEC foes, but it has been decent thus far, making me confident it can find the end zone to help get this over the total, especially if there is garbage time. The team is 14th in explosive pass rate and 52nd in success rate.

If this game gets out of hand, Ole Miss will turn the ball over to Luke Altmyer, who was firmly in the mix for the starting job through the early stages of the season, so I don't expect a massive drop in production on offense.
