Week three in the SEC brought many surprises, causing the rankings to be shaken up. Did the Texas A&M football gain or lose ground?
The surprise of the SEC so far happened Saturday night in Starkville. With a blowout win over LSU, Mississippi State proved that they are much better than expected. A wild finish between Florida and Tennessee left Volunteer fans devastated, and Kentucky made a statement at South Carolina. All the close finishes and upsets have made the rankings to be extremely difficult to decide on.
Texas A&M shows two sides, again
The first half of football for the Aggies last Saturday had many fans wondering if we would win any conference games this year. I, along with many others, was extremely displeased, only to have my whole idea of the team reconsidered after the 31-0 second half. Kellen Mond looked very sharp, and the run game looked beautiful even with the absence of Trayveon Williams. I have no doubt that we have the capability of beating Arkansas.
Elsewhere in the SC
Vanderbilt should not be overlooked after their upset against Kansas State. This team has steadily improved, and will take their best shot at Alabama this week. On a negative note, South Carolina receiver Deebo Samuel’s season is in jeopardy after suffering a fracture in his leg. Samuel was one of the best players in the SEC, and hopefully he sees a speedy recovery on his path to the NFL. Lots of stories unfolded last week, and here is how things are looking heading into Week 4.
