OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- It was just two weeks ago that Mississippi was a trendy pick to make some serious noise in the Southeastern Conference. Not anymore.

Consecutive road losses to No. 1 Alabama and Auburn have sent the Rebels (3-2, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) crashing back to reality, and now No. 9 Texas A&M (4-1, 1-1) comes to town on Saturday.

Ole Miss should get a boost by returning home to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. The Rebels played four of their first five games on the road, but have the next six at home.

To take advantage, Ole Miss must figure out a way to get into the end zone with more consistency. The Rebels had a streak of more than six quarters without a touchdown during the Alabama and Auburn losses.
