Ole Miss has been a thorn in the side of Texas A&M head football coach Kevin Sumlin and the Aggies.
A&M after joining the Southeastern Conference grabbed a pair of thrilling, three-point victories, but the Rebels have won the last three.
“It’s about matchups, some people match up differently,” Sumlin said. “[And] styles of play can create different issues for people. So, I don’t know why that is. I treat every game as mutually exclusive.”
A&M (6-4, 3-3) needs to beat the Rebels (5-5, 2-4) to have a shot at a nine-win season after three straight 8-5 finishes marked by strong starts and poor finishes that included losses to the Rebels.
“We just have to go there and play well,” Sumlin said.
A&M looks to build on a 55-14 nonconference victory over New Mexico.
“It’s always big to get a win no matter what,” said senior wide receiver Damion Ratley. “It’s just going to be big for us to get the win.”
