Frank Schwab: Pitt 21, Ole Miss 17
Paul Chryst started slow in his first season as Pitt's head coach, but the Panthers started to play better by the end of the season. There is some talent on that roster, as shown when Pitt came so close to winning at Notre Dame. Ole Miss played well late too, but beating Mississippi State to get bowl eligible might have been its bowl game.
Graham Watson: Ole Miss 24, Pitt 17
This is a tough game because these teams are so similar on offense and defense. Pitt has been a lot better with ball security, but you never know which team is going to show up. At least Ole Miss has been consistent this season even if the wins weren’t always there. I think Ole Miss’ tough conference schedule helps pull it to victory.
