COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Ole Miss’ season comes down to one game. An early 1-0 lead didn’t hold up as the Rebels lost 5-2 to Texas Christian Sunday night at Texas A&M’s Blue Bell Park. The loss came after the Rebels advanced to the regional championship with a 6-2 win over TCU on Friday and a 6-3 win over Texas A&M on Saturday.
