For the Texas A&M Football team, the SEC season will be starting off with a ranked matchup against one of the hottest teams in the nation. The Arkansas Razorbacks are off to their first 3-0 start since 2016. They have also entered the top-25 since the very same season.

The primary narrative surrounding this game is not one in favor of Texas A&M. According to WynnBET, the Aggies are just 4.5 point favorites against a team that they have defeated nine consecutive times.

Fortunately, anybody who has seen all three Texas A&M Football games from start to finish knows that this is still a strong football team. They may not have their starting quarterback, but there are a handful of reasons why they’ll still beat the Hogs, starting with an obvious reason.

The talent gap between the Texas A&M Football team and Arkansas Football team is nearly insurmountable

The first reason, and one that may not be the end-all, be-all, is the fact that Texas A&M has a significant advantage in the talent department. Per 247Sports’ talent rankings, the Aggies’ have the 8th-most talented roster in college football, while the Razorbacks are outside of the top-25 looking in at the 28th spot.

As of now, you’d also have to give the coaching edge to Texas A&M, who has one of the very few head coaches in college football who has won a national championship in Jimbo Fisher. The Razorbacks do have a strong up-and-coming coaching staff, but if you pinned them head-to-head with A&M’s coaches, there wouldn’t be much of a competition.
