Bold Prediction No. 5: The Texas A&M football team will beat South Carolina by three scores or more

If you’re keeping track, one of my bold predictions has the Aggies limiting South Carolina to ten points or fewer, while another bold prediction has the Aggies scoring 40 points or more. I wasn’t a math major in college, but that adds up to a 30-point victory for the Aggies.

I know the math doesn’t support it, but you never really know with these SEC games. It would be stupid to predict a win by that wide of a margin, which is why I’m being modest and only giving the Aggies a 17-point win or more.

That’s right, I think Texas A&M will win by at least three scores. Here’s why.

South Carolina is an objectively bad SEC team. I know I said that it’s bad to disrespect the squad you’re about to face, but there’s no way around this. If the Aggies don’t win in dominating fashion, it will be dreadfully disappointing.

South Carolina lost by 25 points to Tennessee and struggled against East Carolina and Troy. Heck, they barely beat Vanderbilt. We’re talking about Vandy here.

Meanwhile, A&M is coming off of a win against the No. 1-ranked team in the country and a blowout win over another SEC opponent. At the risk of sounding arrogant, the Aggies are simply built different.
