Louisville Cardinals take on the Ole Miss Rebels at a neutral site in Atlanta, Georgia tonight at 7pm CT! First meeting between these two programs and this will be a doozy. Ole Miss has a great up-tempo offense led by returning junior QB Matt Corral who is looking to boost his draft stock. Corral spreads the ball around well and then they can run against you with a massive o-line. A tall task for Louisville’s defense.
However, unless Louisville’s defense is absolutely horrendous expect Ole Miss junior RB Jerrion Ealy to get a lot of carries. Ealy ranked number 8 in the SEC at the end of 2020 in rushing yards and his team combined for number 1 overall in rushing inside the SEC. Ealy’s carries went up in his second year at Ole Miss a trend I see continuing this year. In 6 out of 9 games last season Ealy went over 74 yards rushing. This came against the likes of Florida and Alabama’s defense to name a few.
