The SEC released the kick-off times for Week 11 of the football season, and Ole Miss will play in a primetime slot against Texas A&M. The Rebels (6-2, 3-2 SEC) will host the Aggies (6-2, 3-2 SEC) in what will absolutely be a very important game for postseason bowl implications on ESPN at 6 pm.
Texas A&M is currently in a fortuitous position of being the only team to hold a tie-breaker over Alabama in the West division, though it still needs some help and good play.
Ole Miss, meanwhile, will be looking for its first win over A&M since 2016 when oft-maligned quarterback Shea Patterson led the Rebels in a furious comeback in front of the largest crowd in Kyle Field history, 29-28.
The Western division showdown will cap off a long day of SEC football with several conference showdowns and a few non-conference blowouts sprinkled in.
I had hoped for at least one more night game this season as the temperatures drop and Ole Miss is playing meaningful games again in November. It’s just a different kind of feeling in the stadium at night time — almost like something is coursing through my veins and making the experience different...no telling what it could be!
Also, don’t forget, Aggie fans are a different bunch. A late game against this squad is going to be all kinds of crazy, I have no doubt. Keep your fingers crossed for a healthier Ole Miss squad come November 13th, that’s all I’m asking for at this point.
