Now that Texas A&M football is back in the win column, they now look forward to the conference play opener against Arkansas on Saturday. They will be playing in Texas, however, it will be in AT&T Stadium as a neutral site.
Max Johnson should continue to start at quarterback while Haynes King takes a backseat until further notice. With Johnson as the signal-caller in Week 3, the Aggie offense looked at the least more stable than it was with King. This should bode well for A&M as Arkansas has one of the worst pass defenses in college football.
The Aggies, despite being ranked significantly lower than the Razorbacks, are dubbed as 2.5-point favorites in Week 4. Even though it is also a neutral site, this is the second week in a row the Aggies have been favored in a matchup with a team ranked higher than them in the AP Poll.

Texas A&M football vs. Arkansas Week 4 prediction
As stated before, the Aggies are considered the favorite in this matchup, however I feel it is rightfully so. This game has “bad mismatch for Arkansas” written all over it, as the Aggies have some starpower at wide receiver along with a speedy running back who also makes splashes in the passing game.
Even if Johnson isn’t elite in this game, A&M should be able to attack the Arkansas secondary with some of the best receiving weapons in the SEC. Their first move should certainly be to get the pass game going, because if the Aggie defense for some reason doesn’t step up, this game could get out of hand quick.
I believe the A&M defense should be able to hold down the Razorback offense enough for the offense to put this game out of reach. I will take Texas A&M football to cover the spread on this one with a potential blowout in the works.
Betting pick for Week 4: Texas A&M -2.5 (-105)
