" Mississippi WRs Donte Moncrief vs. Texas A&M CBs De'Vante Harris and Deshazor Everett
Cal Sport Media via AP ImagesAggies linebacker Jonathan Stewart will be tasked with managing Ole Miss' ground attack.
Moncrief has big play ability and showed it after catching a 55-yard touchdown pass last week against Alabama. He has good size (6-foot-3, 216) and is averaging 18.1 yards per catch this year. Don't be surprised if Moncrief gets some time against the true freshman Harris; Arkansas attacked Harris early with its stud receiver Cobi Hamilton a week ago. Everett likely will get his chances against the sophomore Moncrief, as well. He leads the team with 21 catches for 380 yards and four touchdowns.
" Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel vs. Ole Miss linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche
Manziel has been nothing short of impressive in his young A&M career. He has been a significant threat with his legs, and he's growing as a passer, evidenced by his performance last week against Arkansas. He's the Aggies' leading rusher with 366 yards, an average of 91.5 per game. Nkemdiche, who is a linebacker in a safety's body playing the "Stinger" position in the Rebels' defense, will welcome Manziel's scrambling ways, he told reporters. According to the Jackson Clarion-Ledger, Nkemdiche said after looking at the film on Manziel, "I’m just like, ‘For real, where’s the pursuit. Where’s the pursuit at? We want him to run the ball this weekend, big-time." Nkemdiche is coming off an 11-tackle, three-tackle for loss week with a sack and two forced fumbles that earned him SEC co-Defensive Player of the Week honors.
