Picks: Via SEC Country‘s David Caraviello

Both teams got off to promising starts. Both teams have been sufficiently humbled since. Somebody has to win, right? Despite getting hammered by Alabama and Georgia and fading in the second half at Florida in between, the Commodores have the more balanced offense as long as they don’t forget tailback Ralph Webb is around (which they seem to have done in the Swamp). Ole Miss, coming off back-to-back losses at Alabama and Auburn by a total of 110-26, is playing for pride. The Commodores are trying to make a bowl game, and need to regroup after staggering through the toughest stretch on their schedule.

Kyle Shurmur and Shea Patterson are both talented quarterbacks, but neither one has been able to lift his team up against superior opponents. Shurmur and the Vandy offense  tanked against Alabama a few weeks ago, and Patterson’s Rebels followed with a borderline worse performance against the Tide. These teams are now a combined 0-6 over their past six games.

Thankfully, they have each other. Somebody has to win Saturday, and the smart bet is on the side with a better defense and running game. Patterson may put up a bunch of yards through the air, but that won’t be enough to snap Mississippi’s skid. The pick: Vanderbilt.

Both teams badly need to win this game. For Vanderbilt, it’ll be a another step towards six wins and thus, back-to-back bowl games under Derek Mason. For Ole Miss, it’s a chance to salvage a truly disastrous season, that could see them tail spin to a 2-10 record. Vanderbilt won last year’s game but that was also the second career start for Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson.

In recent weeks, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt have gotten pounded. Ole Miss went 8 quarters, starting in the Cal game and ending in the second half of the Auburn game, without scoring a touchdown. But they did show some signs of life in the second half of that Auburn game, and that impressed interim coach Matt Luke.

“I really challenged them. I wanted to see a difference,” Luke said during his Monday press conference. “I saw some young guys growing up. I saw Sean Rawlings and Shea Patterson come to the defensive huddle. When guys made tackles, I saw the sideline look like it’s supposed to look. It was probably the best half of football we’ve played since Texas A&M last year. I think they started to see what it can be. We’ve just got to build on that.”

Vanderbilt did show some fight against Florida, losing only 38-24, and did frustrate Georgia this past weekend, despite what the final score says. And while Vanderbilt’s run defense is one of the worst in the country, the Commodores will have no problem moving the ball on Ole Miss, which will lead to a Vanderbilt win.

Pick: Vanderbilt 38, Ole Miss 27
