Ole Miss Rebels 2009 College Football Predictions – 2010 BCS Odds: After a breakout year under first year coach Houston Nutt in 2008 where the Ole Miss Rebels football team went 9-4 including a win over eventual BCS champ Florida and a Cotton Bowl victory over BIG 12 contender Texas Tech, the team is projected to reach loftier heights on the grid-iron in 2009. Ole Miss is ranked in the top-10 in both major pre-season polls, 8th (AP) and 9th (USA-Today-Coaches). This is the highest pre-season ranking for Ole Miss since 1970 when it entered that season at No. 5.

On the 2010 BCS Championship betting board, Ole Miss is listed as a contender to win the BCS Championship at 15-to-1 odds.

“We are appreciative of the Associated Press preseason ranking, but we need to keep our blinders on and keep working,” said Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt. “We were not on the radar this time last year and then had a good season. This is a new year, and it’s all about continuing to work hard everyday.”
