OXFORD, Miss. -- Texas A&M and Mississippi are two programs that have new quarterbacks, new head coaches and run a similar offense.
The Aggies are having more success with the formula so far.
Ole Miss (3-2, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) hosts Texas A&M (3-1, 1-1) on Saturday in what's likely to be an entertaining, high-scoring game. Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze and Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin both employ a spread offense that's heavy on passing and speed.
Freeze says the two coaches are friends and have a great familiarity with each other's offense.
The Rebels have shown ample improvement so far this season, already improving their win total after a 2-10 debacle in 2011.
Texas A&M is coming off an impressive 58-10 victory over Arkansas and has outscored its last three opponents 176-27.
