The Texas A&M football team will look to extend their winning streak to three games against another SEC team in South Carolina. The Gamecocks are 4-3 on the year, though they lack an impressive win.
Their victories have come against Eastern Illinois, East Carolina, Troy, and Vanderbilt, with just one of these wins being by double-digit figures.
Some will argue that this could be a trap game for the Aggies — I would argue against it being a trap game. The Aggies should be able to win in dominating fashion. That said, anything can happen in these midseason SEC matchups.
What is the series record between the Texas A&M football team and South Carolina?
Thankfully for Texas A&M, this is one of the more favorable series in all of college football. The Aggies truly dominated the Gamecocks since joining the SEC a decade ago.
In seven contests between Texas A&M and South Carolina, A&M has won every single game. This includes a 48-3 destruction of South Carolina last season, with the Aggies set on a repeat in 2021. in 2019, Texas A&M dismantled the Gamecocks as well, winning the contest by a 30-6 margin.
That said, not every contest between these two teams has been a blowout. In fact, three of Texas A&M’s wins have come by one touchdown or less — indicating that this matchup could swing either way for a short period of time.
Still, if you go back to the first matchup between these two teams, it was a Johnny Manziel-led blowout, with A&M dropping 56 points on South Carolina.
The Gamecocks are 4-3 this season, while the Aggies are 5-2. This indicates that we could potentially have a close game at hand. That said, A&M looks like a much better team, with higher quality wins and fewer ugly losses.
Expect the Aggies to win convincingly on Saturday.
