Ole Miss Rebels vs. Texas A&M Aggies Prediction and Preview

An explosive spread attack offense verses a fiery pro-style barrage — that is what is in store for college football fans tuning in to see the Ole Miss Rebels (5-4, 1-4 SEC) take on the Texas A&M Aggies(5-4, 3-3) on Saturday as both teams try to put an end to two-game losing streaks in College Station.

Life on the college football gridirons in the SEC is never easy, as Ole Miss head coach Matt Luke can easily attest. In the last two games, the Rebels have been prolific on offense yet suffered a 31-16 loss to Auburn and a 48-44 defeat to South Carolina in Oxford. The Auburn game was frustrating — the Rebels put up 447 yards of total offense — but the loss to the Gamecocks was heartbreaking, as Ole Miss lost a 10-point fourth quarter lead. The Rebels allowed two fourth-quarter touchdowns and were held out of the end zone for the final 5:50 of the game.

The Aggies were shell-shocked in Starkville in Week 9, taking a 28-13 loss against Mississippi State. A&M could only muster 293 yards of total offense against MSU and then suffered its own disheartening 28-24 defeat against Auburn last week after letting a 10-point third-quarter lead slip away. The Aggies offense did rebound from the MSU setback, gaining 423 yards of total offense and 203 yards on the ground.
