There is a lot to get excited about about with this matchup between Arkansas and Ole Miss.
Though both teams enter the matchup on the heels of a loss, the pair enjoyed electrifying starts to the season.
Matt Corral led Ole Miss to 52.6 points per game number over the first three weeks while Arkansas notched upsets of Texas and Texas A&M to reach the AP top 10 before falling to Georgia.
Here is how you can bet and watch the SEC showdown.
Arkansas-Ole Miss Start Time
- Date: Saturday, October 9
- Kickoff: 12 p.m. ET
- Location: Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, Oxford, Mississippi
The Razorbacks and Rebels are 1 of 2 top-25 matchups slated to kickoff in the early slot, with the Oklahoma-Texas Red River Showdown being the other.
Arkansas’ contest with Georgia last week earned high ratings as it became the most-watched college football game on cable thus far in 2021.
ESPN will be running a morning-afternoon-evening trio that includes a game in three different conferences, with the SEC game being the headliner of the trio. CBS elected to go with undefeated Georgia vs. Auburn in its afternoon slot.

Arkansas-Ole Miss Odds
- Ole Miss: -5.5
- Arkansas: +5.5
- Total: 66.5
Ole Miss opened as a smaller favorite — around 2 to 2.5 at most books — but bettors quickly pushed that line all the way to 5.5 at PointsBet. The total opened around 68.5 and has been pushed down to 66.5, a possible reaction to the struggles of the Ole Miss offense last week after it lit up everyone in the opening three weeks.
This will be a really fascinating game for Arkansas after an interesting start to the year. The Razorbacks earned a home upset over Texas that put them on the national map as a legitimate squad this year before following that up by squashing Texas A&M in Dallas.
Arkansas threw in a dud last week, however, getting demolished by Georgia 37-0. It’s hard to know how much to make of the two big wins, as Texas A&M proceeded to lose its next game against Mississippi State and Texas hasn’t notched any wins against ranked opponents this year.
Ole Miss will serve as another test to mark just how good the Razorbacks are.
Ole Miss News
Matt Corral was a Heisman favorite at +150 prior to last week’s loss against Alabama, but the dual-threat quarterback remains +250 and right behind Alabama quarterback Bryce Young who sits at +125.
The Rebels are in similar circumstances to Arkansas in the sense that we don’t really know exactly what they are just yet. This will be a test to know if Ole Miss is for real and Alabama is just that good, or if Ole Miss feasted on an easy portion of its schedule to elevate expectations.
