This week the Aggies make their first SEC road appearance, traveling to Oxford Mississippi. Ole Miss is 3-2 on the season after falling to #1 Alabama 33-14 last week. Their three wins were against Central Arkansas and UTEP at home as well as a road victory against Tulane. The other loss came at the hands of the Texas Longhorns at home. In their two losses, Ole Miss has been outscored 99-45, playing surprising well against two of the top 15 teams in the country.
