Allstate Sugar Bowl Matchup

With a 10-0 SU and 6-4 ATS record through their first 10 games of the season, the Oklahoma State Cowboys looked like they could be on their way to a Big 12 title and a spot in the College Football Playoff. But it wasn't meant to be for the Cowboys, who lost their last two games at home against Baylor and Oklahoma giving up 103 points on defense in the process. Oklahoma State's 10-2 SU and 6-6 ATS record still earned the team a spot in the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

By many measures, the Ole Miss Rebels had an extremely successful season. The Rebels were the only team to defeat Alabama, and also picked up impressive double-digit wins over Texas A&M, LSU, and Mississippi State. But losses to Florida, Memphis and Arkansas tarnished Mississippi's season and left the team with a 9-3 SU and 7-4-1 ATS record overall. Interestingly, if not for the one-point upset loss at home to Arkansas, Ole Miss would have represented the SEC West in the SEC Championship Game.

Despite averaging 40.3 points per game on offense, Mississippi trended heavily towards the UNDER down the stretch with an 8-1 record on the UNDER over the team's last nine games, mostly due to solid play on defense. Oklahoma State's shootout tendencies led to six straight OVER results to end the regular season.

Mississippi was run out of the stadium in the Peach Bowl against TCU last year in a 42-3 loss as a 3-point favorite. It's safe to say that the Rebels won't be taking this year's challenge against another high-octane Big 12 offense lightly.
