Ole Miss and LSU are home games

Ole Miss hasn’t been mentioned in either of the previous slides mostly because their defense leaves much to be desired. Each of the aforementioned opponents have elite defenses and are better overall teams

But much as the Aggie defense matches up well with Mississippi State, Auburn and LSU, they might have some problems against Ta’amu and the Rebels passing attack.The good thing for Texas A&M is they get Ole Miss at home. This should give the Aggies a significant leg up in a game they would be heavily favored anyway. Alabama, LSU and Auburn all slowed down Ole Miss’ offense and the Aggies should be able to do the same.

LSU has been a thorn in A&M’s side since joining the SEC. The Aggies have lost all six contests to the Tigers, and also lost to LSU in the Cotton Bowl in 2011. Facing a team that has had your number for seven years in a row is easier to swallow when it’s at home.

Jimbo Fisher will have some extra motivation to beat LSU, where he excelled under Nick Saban, but also this Aggies team will be looking to pick up a huge win in November for the first time in years.

People you didn't know went to Texas A&M. dark. Next

Depending on how these next two weeks go, A&M could also potentially be playing for a spot in a major bowl game. The Kyle Field crowd will be rockin’.
