Spirits on Bourbon and Turtle Bay look forward to another great Sugar Bowl. We are excited to have some great teams from the SEC in big 12. We look forward to meeting their fans and making them fans of bourbon Spirits on Bourbon and Turtle Bay.
Ole Miss Rebels (9-3, 6-2 in SEC)
Ole Miss was one last-second, fluky play away from beating Arkansas and earning a trip to the SEC Championship Game, thanks to its win over Alabama early in the year. Despite the strange blowout losses to Memphis and Florida, the Rebels had an impressive year with wins over LSU and Texas A&M, plus wins on the road against both Alabama and Auburn to become Alabama state champs.
The Ole Miss offense has been very impressive under new quarterback Chad Kelly. Even without quarterback Bo Wallace, the offense didn’t miss a beat, putting up at least 38 points in each of its final three games. The defense struggled at times, but it still has hard hitters in the front seven.
Most importantly, the Rebels avoided a November collapse like last season. Now, can they avoid a bowl collapse after losing 42-3 to TCU in last year’s Peach Bowl?

Oklahoma State Cowboys (10-2, 7-2 in Big 12)
After a 10-0 start, Oklahoma State was dreaming of winning the Big 12 and making the College Football Playoff, but due to a back-loaded schedule, the Cowboys saved their two toughest games for last against Baylor and Oklahoma. A win over TCU had Oklahoma State feeling good, but the Cowboys were blown out by both the Bears and the Sooners, ending their chance to make the Playoff.
However, this has still been a great season for OSU, with a resurgent offense that put up 49 points on TCU and 70 on Texas Tech. The dual-QB system of Mason Rudolph and J.W. Walsh worked well, and it meant the Cowboys were never out of a game.

The defense was more suspect. Oklahoma State played a lot of close games against inferior teams like Texas, Kansas State and Iowa State, to name a few, and that was partly due to the defense. The defense was particularly exposed against Baylor, with the Bears mostly playing a third-string quarterback, and Oklahoma. Can it get back to respectability to complement the offense in a bowl game.
