The Texas A&M Football team has their most important game of the season rapidly approaching. On Saturday, the Aggies will travel to Arlington to take on the Arkansas Razorbacks, who have been elite thus far in 2021.

Originally, this would have looked like an easy win for Texas A&M, who has taken home a victory in this matchup every time these teams have met since 2012, when the Aggies joined the SEC. This time around, however, things could get interesting for a few reasons.

Here are three reasons why Texas A&M vs. Arkansas will be the best game of the week.

Reason No. 1: The Texas A&M Football team is more vulnerable than they ever expected to be

I actually believe that the Texas A&M Football team’s struggles are being overblown. Yes, they don’t have their quarterback, but outside of the Colorado game, the offense has looked really good. They’ll get their toughest challenge against Arkansas though, a team that has won every single game this year by three scores.

A&M, on the other hand, has two comfortable victories and a close scare against Colorado.

Texas A&M has the edge in terms of talent, coaching, and experience. That said, the one thing that Arkansas holds over the Aggies is their resume. The Razorbacks already have a signature win over Texas, which they secured in dominating fashion.

Without their quarterback and with an unestablished run game, the unbiased choice to win this game would have to be the Hogs. Momentum is in the less talented team’s favor, which could create a great competition.
