Don’t look now but the Ole Miss Rebels have the opportunity to leapfrog into pole position in the SEC standings this weekend. All they’ll have to do is figure out a way to get past the current conference leader Florida Gators. Coming off of a loss to preseason juggernaut Kentucky, they’ll be hard pressed to find enough momentum, but it’s not impossible.

Ranked No. 16 in the polls, the Rebels have impressed college basketball fans with a consistently strong 2012-13 campaign. That, plus a victory over Missouri (not to mention Kentucky’s miserable start to the season), has created the opportunity for Ole Miss to potentially move into first in the SEC.
The No. 4 Gators, however, sit ahead of their conference rivals for a reason, and that’s reflected in their 7/1 odds of winning March Madness. In contrast, Ole Miss sits at 75/1 on the college basketball futures.
Has Mississippi’s success been a legitimate indication of what fans can expect in the run-in with Florida? Has their strong start to the year simply been a product of a relatively easy schedule? Weigh in on the matchup as the top two teams in the SEC wage war.
