The Aggies looked a little shaky opening the second half as they drove the ball down the field and kicker Daniel LaCamera missed at 45-yard field goal attempt, but a glimpse of hope for the Aggies came with a Derrick Tucker pick six giving Texas A&M their first lead of the game 28-24 over Ole Miss. Meanwhile, the Ole Miss Rebels are looking to put together a good run to finish out the regular season, despite being ineligible to make it to a bowl game no matter what.

Ole Miss (5-6, 2-5) couldn't generate any offense after a promising first half. A late 28-yard field goal from Gary Wunderlich sailed through the uprights and Ole Miss closed the first half leading 24-21.
