Vanderbilt will face their toughest test of the 2015 season on Saturday when they head to Oxford to face a dynamic Mississippi Rebel team. Ole Miss is currently ranked #3 in the nation after defeating Alabama last weekend, and now they'll need a big win over a 1-2 Vandy team to keep that momentum moving forward.
The Commodores would be more than happy to play spoiler. Vanderbilt is 6-4 against the Rebels in the last 10 years, but they're working on the wrong side of recent history after getting pasted 41-3 last fall. That game introduced Vandy fans to the walking dumpster fire better known as "Starting Quarterback Stephen Rivers" and managed only 167 yards of total offense in one of the team's worst performances in the modern era.
Things will be better on Saturday, if only because they couldn't possibly get worse. To help us assess Vanderbilt's chances, I turned to an expert. JuCo All-American is an author over at Red Cup Rebellion, SBNation's Ole Miss headquarters. He was nice enough to sit down with me and trade questions about this weekend's matchup.

1. Ole Miss is sporting an all-time offense after averaging 64 points per game to open up the 2015 season. Chad Kelly is coming off a 343-yard, three touchdown performance against Alabama. What has the former Clemson QB brought to the Mississippi offense, and how is he different from Bo Wallace?
