Back-to-back SEC road games at Texas A&M (Nov. 7) and Arkansas (Nov. 14) open the final month of the season, followed by a home matchup with Georgia Southern (Nov. 21). Ole Miss hosts Mississippi State on Thanksgiving Night (Nov. 26) in the annual Battle for the Golden Egg to close out the regular season.
