Two high-powered offenses will do battle in New Orleans on New Year's Day when No. 6 Baylor faces No. 8 Ole Miss in a game with plenty of potential for high scores and dazzling offense.
Ole Miss is no stranger to the Sugar Bowl having competed in it nine previous times in school history. They are the highest-ranked SEC school not in the playoffs and this will be the Rebels' sixth appearance in a New Year's Six bowl game in the last 18 years. They are coming off their first 10-win season in school history, which seems rather inconceivable.
