The Texas A&M football team will look to reach 4-0 status in a conference matchup against the Arkansas Razorbacks. This will mark the ninth meeting between these two teams since the Aggies joined the SEC in 2012, with A&M taking home a victory in each and every game. Last year, A&M snuck out of their matchup with a bad Arkansas team by an 11-point margin.
Arkansas didn’t have high expectations heading into the 2021 season but has managed to accumulate three wins in fast order. They now find themselves at the 16th-ranked team in the country.
Texas A&M is 3-0 with wins over Kent State, Colorado, and New Mexico. Their starting quarterback in Haynes King went down with an early injury, giving them a shakier future in the SEC.

Texas A&M vs. Arkansas Prediction Week 1
Texas A&M will be playing an unexpected ranked matchup on the road against the Arkansas Razorbacks. This may have looked like a guaranteed win before the season began — now that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Arkansas QB KJ Jefferson has played great football thus far in 2021, averaging 10.0 yards per attempt. A stout Aggie defense could have a say in his performance, however, as they only allowed 33 passing yards by a red-hot New Mexico quarterback in Terry Wilson last week.
This is setting up to be a low-scoring battle, where the team with the better defense will take home the victory. We’re predicting a 20-13 Texas A&M victory.
