Ole Miss vs Texas A&M Game Preview

Why Ole Miss Will Win

Call it a blip.

The Ole Miss defense has been solid for most of the season and the offense has been fantastic on the way to pushing through the first seven games before having problems at LSU.

The D couldn’t handle Tiger QB Jayden Daniels and struggled with the offensive balance, but there’s not much to worry about with the Texas A&M attack.

The Aggies didn’t come into the season with a whole lot of firepower, and it’s proving costly with injuries – you don’t get better losing a playmaker like Ainias Smith – with the second-worst attack in the SEC averaging just 342 yards per game.

What’s Going To Happen

Being at home will matter.

It’s not like the Aggies cranked up the production at Kyle Field against Miami or Appalachian State, and the O won’t go off, but they need a shot of energy and they’re about to get it.

It starts with the run defense. Alabama and Arkansas were able to pound away a bit, and Ole Miss will have its moments, but the front line will be strong from the start and keep the great group of backs to under 200 yards.

It’s Texas A&M – this isn’t going to be pretty, especially with QB Haynes King banged up. The defense will rise up and pick up the slack.
