Prediction No. 2: The Texas A&M Football team will win by a very wide margin

It’s easy to get sent into a downward spiral in regards to your football team after watching a game like the one in Boulder. The Aggies looked awful offensively and even after a pretty confident win against Kent State, it was hard to maintain a positive outlook.

This game against New Mexico should do just that.

The Lobos do not have a favorable record against ranked football teams. In their last 15 contests against teams in the top-25, New Mexico has lost by at least 28 points 14 times, according to Bleacher Report. That’s really bad.

I don’t say that for the sole purpose of disrespecting the Lobos, who are off to an 0-2 start, I’m simply stating the truth. It’s hard to see them breaking that trend, especially considering that their only loss within 28 points came against a 24th-ranked Boise State team. A&M should take care of business and they should do it convincingly, even with a backup quarterback.

This could function as a huge confidence-building win.

It’s not really a hot take to say that A&M will win big, though I think it’s still worth mentioning in this post. Expect Texas A&M’s offense to return to strong form, with a resurgence by the player listed on the next slide.
