Happy Friday, Ole Miss fans!
The weekend is finally here, and the showdown between Ole Miss and Texas A&M is just a day away. The Rebels are looking to bounce back from last week’s disappointing loss, and they’ll have some of their best talent on the field, as they try to knock off the Aggies.
Here are 2 things to know:
- Ole Miss defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche has reportedly been cleared to play against Texas A&M. Nkemdiche suffered a concussion last week against Memphis and has been going through the concussion protocol tests this week. Obviously, that’s huge new for the Rebels.
- Speaking of Nkemdiche’s concussion, Ole Miss athletics director Ross Bjork was not happy that the star defensive tackle was the center of a Memphis newspaper’s coverage of last weekend’s game. Bjork wrote a letter to the editor expressing his thoughts on the matter.
