MISSISSIPPI Off – *5/4 Def – 6/1 60 Lettermen
TEAM THEME: REBEL WITH A CAUSE
The Rebels have somehow managed to crack the 60 returning lettermen barrier once again. In fact, going back from 2017 to Hugh Freeze’s first year with the program in 2012, the Rebels returning lettermen have numbered 60, 61, 58, 60, 58, and 61. What it means is his recruiting skills have been exceptional, thus the reason his teams are 49-27 SU and 44-25-1 ATS throughout his FBS career. And remember, he’s doing it in the ultra-competitive grounds of the SEC. The young Rebels started the 5th most freshmen in FBS last season (20.1%), and will be a qualified ‘Mission Team’ in 2017, suffering their first losing season last year under Freeze.
STAT YOU WILL LIKE: Freeze is 15-1 SU and 14-2 ATS as a favorite vs. non-conference opponents.
