Penalties and inconsistencies on offense doomed Texas A&M in its 23-3 loss to Ole Miss on Saturday. The Aggies will look to rebound from the loss by preparing for their Week 9 matchup against South Carolina.
Here are four things to know
- Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin was not pleased with how the Aggies offense performed in Oxford on Saturday. “We got whipped. Offensively we couldn’t move the ball,” Sumlin said at the postgame press conference.
- Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett made an impressive interception in the second quarter of Saturday’s game. Garrett tipped Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly’s pass at the line of scrimmage and picked it off in a stunning display of athleticism.
- For the second week in a row, Texas A&M quarterback Kyle Allen struggled in getting the Aggies to move the ball on offense. One week after throwing three pick-sixes to Alabama defensive backs, Allen was taken out of the game in the fourth quarter against Ole Miss after completing just 2 of his last 22 passes, which both went for negative yards.
- Sumlin also explained his decision to bring backup quarterback Jake Hubenak over Kyler Murray after he benched starter Kyle Allen in the fourth quarter.
