Five games we DIDN'T expect to shape the SEC...No.4, Ole Miss at Arkansas

Game No.4 on our countdown of top five games you didn't expect to shape the SEC:

GAINESVILLE -- You thought Alabama-Auburn was a rivalry? Florida-Georgia? The SEC hasn't seen anything like its latest cutthroat rivalry. Ole Miss vs. Arkansas takes on new meaning this season when former Hogs coach Houston Nutt brings his Ole Miss Rebels to Fayetteville.

What once was one of the SEC West's forgotten rivalries gets new life in 2008. The divorce between Nutt and Arkansas was a nasty one and this rivalry will be laced with overtones of hatred, spit and guttural cries of displeasure.

Ole Miss at Arkansas
When: Oct. 25
Why this game matters: Other than it being one of the best SEC games of the regular season? Ole Miss had no business landing Houston Nutt. Gator Clause suspects that half of the reason the coach went to Oxford was to spite his old employer. Now that Ole Miss has their man, watch for the Rebs to improve quickly. The winner of this game could prove to be a major spoiler in the SEC West. Gator Clause isn't sold on LSU, Auburn or Alabama.
