Texas A&M Football picked up a significant fourth SEC win over Ole Miss on Saturday. Here are five big takeaways from the Aggies’ victory.

Texas A&M beat a school from Mississippi. After struggling to put away both Ole Miss and Mississippi State over the past few years the Aggies found just enough on both sides of the ball to pick up a big November win. The victory puts the Aggies one win away from a 5-3 conference record and a clear sign of improvement from a year ago.

With the loss Ole Miss falls to 5-6. They don’t have any bowl hopes to play for with the self-imposed bowl ban this year, but they’ve proven themselves to be resilient nevertheless. The Rebels close out the season on Thanksgiving with the Egg Bowl. They’re going to give Mississippi State everything they’ve got and will be delighted to play spoiler to the Bulldogs’ bowl hopes if they can.

The Aggies trailed through the first half but were able to answer the Rebels score for score before an Ole Miss field goal gave the Rebels a 3-point half time lead. Texas A&M would score a defensive touchdown to take their first lead of the game in the third quarter and hold on to win the game by a score of 31-24.

Here are five overreactions from the Aggies’ win. Could it be a sign of things to come?
