Texas A&M Football opponent Week 1 outcomes: Ole Miss, Prairie View A&M, LSU
Ole Miss Rebels, 43-24 W: If there’s a team that is trending upwards after this past weekend, it’s Ole Miss, who dismantled a hopeful Louisville team in their first matchup of the year. Again, it’s just one game against a team that had a losing record last year, but the win was convincing.
Ole Miss looked really good in the passing game, which shouldn’t come as a surprise, as Matt Corral is one of college football’s best returning quarterbacks. The Rebel quarterback passed for nearly 400 yards while rushing for over 50 and a touchdown.
Prairie View A&M Panthers, 40-17 W: I’ve talked about a couple of impressive wins on this list, but I’d argue that none of those were as impressive as Prairie View A&M’s. The Panthers knocked off another FCS team by a convincing 23-point margin.
Their quarterback Juwon Pass has a great name and he had a great game, passing for 354 yards and three touchdowns. Prairie View could be a sneaky late-season opponent for the Aggies.
LSU Tigers, 27-38 L: Ah, LSU. The first, last, and only losers on the entirety of this list. It’s actually jarring how brutal the Tigers’ fall from grace was, as this team was hoisting a national championship trophy just a couple of seasons ago. Now, they’re losing badly to unranked teams like UCLA.
LSU’s quarterback in Max Johnson actually had a solid game, but the Tigers’ running game was nonexistent, with the team mustering up just 49 total yards. No running game means no offense, which means that this LSU team will likely struggle all season long.
