Comments

This is probably the best matchup for this weekend’s games. Two 2-loss teams battle to stay in the upper cusp of the conference. The loser is likely looking at a non-New Year’s bowl game. A&M has an outside chance to slip into the playoff if the stars align right. They need for Auburn to beat Alabama in a couple weeks. It’ll be Ole Miss’ offense taking on the strong defense of Texas A&M. Per game, Ole Miss gains an average of over 100 yards offense more than A&M’s offense. The Aggie defense holds opponents to over 100 yards less per game than Ole Miss’ defense does. This one is pretty even. I’m going with the home team in a close one.
