There are a lot of reasons to think Ole Miss will break a 16-game SEC losing streak this week, more of them having to do with how the Rebels have competed than with Auburn’s own struggles.
The Rebels have won just two of the last 12 games in the series regardless of circumstances.
The question(s): What happens if the Rebels lose? Is there more focus on the streak ending now because of Auburn’s well-documented struggles in a 1-4 start? If the Rebels lose, does this team continue to compete hard and fight, or does its focus begin to slip?
