Texas A&M Football has a big opportunity in front of them in Week 9 against Mississippi State. Here are five bold predictions for the Aggies against the Bulldogs.

Texas A&M welcomes the Mississippi State Bulldogs to Kyle Field in a pivotal matchup in the SEC West. Thinking about this matchup from last year will give most Aggie fans nauseous. The Aggies dropped the game 35-28 the week after being ranked No. 4 in the College Football Playoff.

Both teams are coming off a win. Texas A&M beat Florida on the road before having the weekend off in Week 8. Mississippi State did not get a bye week. Instead, they welcomed Kentucky to Starkville, blasting them 45-7.

While the College Football Playoff seems out of reach this year, a spot in the initial Playoff rankings next week is well within reach for both of these teams if they win on Saturday.

This matchup of 5-2 teams will really establish the No. 2 team in the SEC West behind the Alabama Crimson Tide. Kickoff is set for 6:15 PM at Kyle Field in College Station, TX. Here are five bold  predictions for Texas A&M vs. Mississippi State.
