The Texas A&M football team gets a break against a Prairie View A&M team that is not even remotely threatening
If you’re a Texas A&M Aggie sports fan, you’re familiar with the fact that the Texas A&M basketball team recently played Texas A&M-Kingsville really close. If they had lost that game, it would have been one of the worst losses in program history.
I say this to make a point — Texas A&M cannot overlook other schools with A&M in their name who are nationally unknown. A stretch, yes, but a fun joke.
In reality, the Texas A&M football team is in a much better place than the Texas A&M basketball team. The basketball team only won eight games last season — I could count on two hands how many times that has happened in program history. Do you know who won more games than this? The football team, who won nine in 2020.
In reality, the Aggies should completely dismantle the Panthers in a contest where the talent gap is insurmountable. This should be a strong confidence-building game and a good opportunity for Jimbo Fisher to build his team’s resume to be the first two-loss College Football Playoff team.
Still, Prairie View is 6-1 on the year and sits at first place in the SWAC. They’ll be motivated to give the Aggies a fight. The real storyline to follow here is whether Texas A&M will win in a convincing or unconvincing manner — I’ll go with the latter.
Final Score Prediction: Texas A&M Aggies 51, Prairie View A&M Panthers 7
