College football fans who watch Ole Miss football games and watch TCU football saw two of the nation’s most dominant teams for much of the season. In the college playoff hunt for weeks, both Ole Miss and TCU find themselves in the Peach Bowl, the first major bowl game of December. But today’s Ole Miss vs TCU game is no sleeper. It should be the best QB battle this side of the Rose Bowl, and it’s the first matchup of Top-10 teams. If you’re not near a TV to watch Peach Bowl live, you can watch Ole Miss vs TCU football online free Peach Bowl live streaming as well.
Kickoff for the Ole Miss vs TCU Peach Bowl on ESPN is live at 12:30 EST / 9:30 PST. Though Ole Miss vs TCU has No. 6 TCU as the home team, the Peach Bowl is being played in the Georgia Dome, so No. 9 Ole Miss is more of a home team in SEC country.
Though ranked three spots below TCU, Ole Miss is sure to play like the favorite in the Peach Bowl. A big reason is senior quarterback Bo Wallace, who with one more win will become the winningest QB in Ole Miss history. If we watch Ole Miss football game online free or on TV and see them win, we’ll also see them have their first 10-win season in 11 years.
However, Wallace will be missing a key player on his offensive line. Just one month ago, starting left guard Aaron Morris left for the season with a torn ACL. That’s not good news for Ole Miss vs TCU.
Reason: the Horned Frogs have 35 sacks this year and 23 interceptions, third-best among all FBS schools. TCU is likely to put intense pressure on the Ole Miss offensive line, forcing Wallace to take some risks as we watch Peach Bowl online free Ole Miss vs TCU. Such risks may go in TCU’s favor. Their defense has five defensive TDs this year, fourth among all Power 5 schools.
But Wallace is no stranger to gambling on offense. Neither is TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin, who’s proven himself a true dual-threat QB. Boykin this season passed for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns, backing that up with 642 rushing yards and eight TDs. That means that as you watch TCU vs Ole Miss game online free or watch Peach Bowl live on TV, keep your eyes peeled on a QB NFL scouts say is a taller, faster version of Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson.
While we can expect Wallace and Boykin to put on an offensive show, Ole Miss plays in the SEC, where defense still rules. And that’s where Ole Miss may have an advantage despite being ranked No. 9 to TCU’s No. 6. The Ole Miss Rebels beat Alabama, then went into the Egg Bowl and beat Mississippi State. In short: Ole Miss vs TCU is anyone’s game, and all bets are off in the first big bowl game of the postseason.
