Challenges for Ole Miss

This one’s another tough challenge for Ole Miss. Texas A&M has a solid offense but where they really make their money is with their defense. The Aggies are 16th nationally and third in the SEC in total defense. A&M defenders have intercepted 10 passes so far this season. They allow opponents to convert on just about 33 percent of third-down situations. A big reason for the Aggies’ defensive success is defensive lineman Tyree Johnson who has 17.5 sacks during his career at A&M including eight this season. To have a shot at earning a win the Ole Miss blockers must account for players like Johnson.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:00 PM CT (7:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the ESPN Network.
