SEC newcomer Texas A&M came from behind in the final minutes to down Ole Miss 30-27 Saturday night in Oxford.  It is the first SEC road win for the Aggies, who improve to 4-1 overall, 2-1 in the conference.

Texas A&M was down by 10 points midway through the 4th quarter when the Aggies mounted a 99-yard drive to close the gap.  After Ole Miss was unable to convert on a 4th and 1 attempt, the Aggies took advantage of the short field and scored the go-ahead touchdown with less than 2 minutes remaining.

Ole Miss failed to take advantage of 6 Texas A&M turnovers to lose their 16th straight conference game, dating back to 2010.

Aggie quarterback Johnny Manziel threw for 191 yards and rushed for 129 as A&M racked up 484 total yards.  The Rebels gained 464 yards, mostly on the arm of quarterback Bo Wallace.  Wallace was 20 of 34 for 305 yards.

Jeff Scott led the ground game for Mississippi with 108 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries.  A&M was led by Ben Malena with 142 yards on 18 carries with 1 touchdown.

The Aggies travel to Shreveport to take on Louisiana Tech on Saturday night.  The Rebels will host Auburn for homecoming on Saturday.
