The line for this game is Ole Miss by 28 points.

Ole Miss steps out of the SEC and takes a break from one of the most brutal schedules in the nation when it hosts Georgia Southern on Saturday, but it won’t be that easy because of a porous rushing defense and an offensive line ravaged by injuries. The Rebels, who played six ranked teams in their first eight games, fell to 1-4 in the SEC with a 40-29 loss to No. 12 Auburn last week when they yielded 307 yards on the ground en route to their third straight setback.

Senior Kevin Ellison runs the show and is 67 passing yards shy of becoming the third Eagles quarterback with 3,000 career passing and 3,000 rushing yards. Georgia Southern boasts a stable of five prominent running backs with junior L.A. Ramsby recording the fewest carries (50) but the most touchdowns (five) in the group. Senior linebacker Ironhead Gallon is sixth among Sun Belt players with 8.9 tackles per game.

The Rebels try to avoid their first four-game losing streak since 2011 and rest their hopes on the arm of Kelly (62 percent completion rate, 18 touchdowns, eight interceptions). Kelly is also the team’s second-leading rusher (309 yards, three touchdowns) to senior Akeem Judd (417, four) while his favorite target is senior tight end Evan Engram (49 catches, 700 yards, six TDs) with junior Damore’ea Stringfellow (16 yards per catch, three TDs) the top deep threat. Offensive linemen in senior Robert Conyers, juniors Daronte Bouldin and Rod Taylor, and sophomore Sean Rawlings are all questionable to play.

Three of Ole Miss’s losses have come to teams ranked in the top 13 of the first College Football Playoff rankings released Tuesday – Alabama (No. 1), Auburn (9) and LSU (13). The Rebels also visit No. 4 Texas A&M on Nov. 12.

Kelly leads the SEC in yards per game (316.5) and touchdown passes while Engram paces the nation’s tight ends with an average of 6.1 receptions and the SEC at 87.5 yards.

The Eagles, who have never played Ole Miss, defeated Florida 26-20 in their final game as an FCS school in 2013. The Rebels are 30-1-2 versus the Sun Belt.
