The Texas A&M football team has defied all odds over the past four weeks, kicking off their hot stretch by knocking off No. 1 Alabama. They’d continue by steamrolling Missouri and South Carolina before sending the Auburn football team off of their home turf with frowns on their faces.

While A&M has undeniably been one of the best, if not, the best football team in the country over that four-week stretch, their two losses still look like a stain on their resume. The Aggies will get a great chance to put those losses further in the rearview mirror away from home against Ole Miss.

Today, I’m giving you three piping-hot bold predictions for the Aggies’ Week 11 contest against Ole Miss.

Texas A&M Football Bold Prediction No. 1: Isaiah Spiller will rush for over 200 yards

To find the last time that Isaiah Spiller rushed for at least 200 yards, you have to rewind all the way to his freshman season. Spiller did it in Week 10 of the 2019 season against UTSA, rushing for 217 yards and recording three touchdowns on the day.

I think he can do it again.

Ole Miss has one of the worst overall defenses in the country. If you pull up a magnifying glass and look even closer, you’ll see that their defensive struggles start in the running game. The Rebels allow 194.3 rushing yards per contest, which is second-worst in the SEC to Missouri.

This could even end up being another performance where we see both Spiller and Devon Achane go over 100 yards but neither stick out as the better back. Either way, I see this backfield producing in a big way against Ole Miss.
