Pretty important claim, IMHO. Let's treat this with grave concern and go inside the very important numbers.

There are 18 two-win FBS teams at the moment. According to this week's advanced stats, Arizona ranks in the top 35 despite holding a 2-5 record, while Utah State likewise ranks in the nation's upper half. The Aggies' claims to fame: almost beating BYU, almost beating Colorado State and almost beating ... hey, look! Auburn at Jordan-Hare in Week 1. Thus, if Ole Miss is really even better than Utah State, the Tigers are in for a long Saturday.
