Top 25 Rank: Considered

Weekend Series: at LSU

Ole Miss notched a resume win over Louisville on Wednesday, defeating the Cardinals 8-3. While Brady Bramlett and Christian Trent have been outstanding on the mound, the Rebels are struggling to find their Sunday starter. Senior righty Sam Smith seems to be the favorite, but he has a 6.41 ERA and just 10 strikeouts in five starts.

Offensively, the Rebels have turned to utility player Will Ferrell, who has been working out with several MLB teams in Spring Training.

Weekend Prediction: LSU defeats Ole Miss 2 games to 1

While the Rebels offense has been inconsistent, Ole Miss has one of the best 1-2 punches on the mound with Brady Bramlett and Christian Trent. The duo has allowed just 13 runs in 46 1/3 combined innings in 2015. Look for one of the two to secure a win in Baton Rouge.
