Troy vs Ole Miss Week 1 Game Info
2022 NCAA College Football Game
Troy Trojans (0-0, 0-0) vs. No. 21 Ole Miss Rebels (0-0, 0-0)
Date: Saturday, Sept. 3, 2022
Time: 4 p.m. ET
Venue: Vaught-Hemingway Stadium — Oxford, MS
Week 1 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a showdown between the Troy Trojans and No. 21 Ole Miss Rebels. The Trojans left much to be desired in 2021, going 5-7 overall and 3-5 against Sun Belt teams, finishing second-last in the conference's East Division. Now, Jon Sumrall looks to turn things around in his first year as Troy's head coach.
Meanwhile, the Rebels owned a 10-3 record last year while going 6-2 against their fellow SEC schools. Unfortunately, Ole Miss lost to Baylor, 21-7, in the Sugar Bowl to end its year. Nevertheless, Lane Kiffin's team is primed for another successful campaign even if he hasn't announced who'll be the starting quarterback just yet.

Troy vs Ole Miss Prediction & Pick
This matchup marks Troy and Ole Miss' second-ever clash and the first meeting since the 2013 season. The Rebels were on the right side of a 51-21 blowout victory that time and things are shaping up for a similar result this Saturday.
At the end of the day, Troy isn't even close to being on the level of an SEC school. In fact, the Trojans are an abysmal 1-19 straight up in their last 20 games against the conference, whereas Ole Miss is 16-0 in its last 16 games against Sun Belt schools.
There's no reason to overthink things here. Ole Miss will walk out victorious and it'll be in a fairly big fashion.
Final Score Prediction: Ole Miss: 42 | Troy: 17

Troy doesn't exactly have the talent to pose much of a threat to Ole Miss. Even if a 21.5-point spread looks intimidating, this is enough of a mismatch that the Rebels should be able to cover. Throw in the fact that Ole Miss performs well against the spread while Troy doesn't, and it isn't hard to go with the Rebels here.
Bet: Ole Miss -21.5 (-110)
