Good morning, Ole Miss fans!
It’s officially Texas A&M week, and despite the doom and gloom surrounding the Rebels since Saturday’s loss to Memphis, the game with the Aggies is a very big one.
A loss to Texas A&M could potentially lead to the Rebels spiralling out of control down the stretch, but a win could get Ole Miss the momentum it needs to end the season on a strong note.
Here are four things to know:
- Ole Miss undoubtedly has plenty of things to correct if it wants any chance to take down the Aggies. I highlighted those issues in my report card following the loss to Memphis.
- With Saturday’s loss, the Rebels fell to No. 24 in the Associated Press Top 25. Ole Miss also came in at No. 23 in the Amway Coaches’ Poll.
- Several former Rebels shared their thoughts on Ole Miss’ loss to Memphis on Twitter, including Deuce McAllister and Donte Moncrief.
- Despite the negative vibes surrounding Ole Miss, the Rebels opened as the favorite against Texas A&M in Vegas.
