Arkansas Razorbacks vs. Texas A&M Aggies

Saturday, Sept. 29 at Noon E.T.; AT&T Stadium; Arlington, Texas

Spread: Texas A&M -21; Over/Under: 60.5

Jeff Shull

Arkansas has losses to Colorado State and North Texas already, plus got blown out by Auburn. A&M is definitely more talented and better coached than those former two teams. The only thing preventing this game from a blowout could be A&M’s inability to tackle and prevent big plays.

Kellen Mond should have a field day against Arkansas’ No. 104 ranked pass defense. Expect the offense to put up points no matter what. All they have to do is right the ship defensively and they’ll be putting in the backups in the fourth quarter.

Mond continues to play well, defense holds up as Aggies do not need OT to beat he Hogs.

Texas A&M’s offense will flourish against Arkansas. Trayveon Williams, Kendrick Rogers, and Kellen Mond should put up big numbers. Arkansas has had very poor special teams play, and their defense leaves a lot to be desired. With all of this in mind, I expect game will almost certainly end up being a blowout in favor of The Aggies.
