The No.12 Ole Miss Rebels (7-2, 3-2 SEC) host the No.11 Texas A&M Aggies this weekend inside Vaught-Hemingway Stadium on Saturday night.
ESPN’s College GameDay will be in the Grove for this weekend’s SEC West Division game. This is the first time GameDay has been on campus since the Alabama game in the 2014 season.
“I’m delighted that our schedule this week features a Top 15 game,” said head coach Lane Kiffin. “College GameDay is coming to town. I think that reflects a lot of what these players have been doing throughout the season.
Texas A&M (7-2, 4-2 SEC) arrives in Oxford this weekend after beating then No. 13 Auburn at College Station last weekend.
“It’s a very good team that we play with great players,” said Kiffin. “Without doubt the best personal team we have played all year. I think defensively it is.
Kiffin added that the Rebels will have a lot of challenges that will cause the Aggies to have elite players.
This season, Texas A&M have allowed their opponents to average 14.67 points per game.
“When watching the defense (Aggies), it’s like watching an NFL defense,” Kiffin said. “(Jimbo) has some really special players who are dominant.”
Offensively, the Aggies have scored 257 points in nine games with 11 rushing touchdowns and 14 in the air.
“I think I got it (the offense) against Alabama,” Kiffin said. “The quarterback played the best in this game against a good defense and looked good. They’ve been able to get the ball rolling most of the year with two great running backs and a good offensive line.
Kiffin added that we will have our hands full as we have struggled at times to stop the race throughout the year.
The kickoff for this match is set for 6 p.m. on ESPN.
