The Ole Miss Rebels and the Texas A&M Aggies will match up in college football action from Kyle Field on Saturday.
Ole Miss comes in here at 5-4 on the year. The Rebels have taken out Texas Tech, Southern IL, Kent State, LA-Monroe and Arkansas while falling to Alabama, LSU, Auburn and South Carolina.
In the SC game, Ole Miss QB Jordan Ta’amu put up 379 yards through the air, and Scottie Phillips managed 141 yards and three scores on the ground. Elijah Moore was the lead Rebels receiver with his 129 yards on 11 grabs.
Over on the Aggies’ side, they’re 5-4 this season. Texas A&M’s wins have come against NW ST, LA-Monroe, Arkansas, Kentucky, and South Carolina, while they’ve lost to Clemson, Alabama, MS State and Auburn.
In the Auburn game, Texas A&M QB Kellen Mond managed 220 yards with one TD and one INT, and Trayveon Williams had 107 yards and two TDs. Williams also led the Aggies receivers on five grabs for 75 years and a TD.
The Rebels are 11-23 ATS in their last 34 in November and 6-14-1 ATS in their last 21 road games. Ole Miss is 1-4 ATS in their last five following an ATS loss and 1-6 ATS in their last seven overall.
Meanwhile, the Aggies are 6-1 ATS in their last seven home games and 6-2 ATS versus a team with a winning record. Texas A&M is also 7-3 ATS in their last 10 overall and 5-16 ATS in their last 21 in November.
It’s a little weird to see a QB pass for 379 yards and still have zero TDs—or picks for that matter—but that’s what happened in Ole Miss’ tough loss against South Carolina their last time out. The scoreboard improvement is nice to see, but the consecutive L the last two weeks is not.
As for the Aggies, they’ve had a few outings where they’ve looked competent this season but on the whole they’re just wildly inconsistent and in need of some more experience taking tight games.
I’m going to go with Ole Miss to turn things around and manage a cover here, but it should be a fun game to watch.
