Texas A&M-Ole Miss Series Prediction

This is a close series with Ole Miss holding a slim 4-3-1 series lead since Texas A&M joined the league in 2013. The Aggies snapped a three series win streak by the Rebels last season and look to win back-to-back series over Ole Miss for the first time. The Rebels have won the last two series and Swayze Field. The teams split a weather-shortened series in Oxford in 2015. Ole Miss owns the only sweep in the series in 2019 in Oxford.

The Texas A&M Aggies have won its last six SEC series and is 10-3 in league play since starting 7-7. The Aggies, who have won three straight conference games and six of seven, won 10 SEC home games for the second time since joining the league (11-4 in 2016). Its 17 SEC wins marks the third-highest in school history (18 in 2015, 20 in 2016). This is the first time since 2015 Texas A&M closes SEC play on the road. The Aggies, who have played three of their last four series at home, have won their last two road series over Georgia and Vanderbilt. A&M is seeking to win four SEC road series for the first time since 2016. (Source: SEC)
