OXFORD, MS (FOX 44) — The road woes continued for the Texas A&M Aggies as a potential comeback came to a screeching halt after Randy Bond’s 43-yard field goal came up short after being tipped to preserve a 38-35 win for No. 10 Ole Miss.
The Rebels took a 14-0 lead shortly into the second quarter before the Aggies blocked field goal return from Jacoby Mathews pulled A&M within a score.
The Aggies responded to an Ole Miss touchdown with a 13-yard touchdown run from Le’Veon Moss to enter the half trailing 20-14.
Each team traded scores from that point, with Ole Miss eventually taking a 10-point lead heading into the fourth quarter.
The Aggies mounted a fierce comeback, even taking the lead on a one-yard touchdown run from Max Johnson with just 4:34 remaining in the game. However, a nine-play, 75-yard drive ended in Quinshon Judkins punching it into the end zone for the go-ahead one-yard score to give Ole Miss a 38-35 lead and the win.
