Why Texas A&M Football will Destroy the ULM Warhawks
It’s no secret that there is a huge talent and production disparity between the two teams we will see facing off at Kyle Field this Saturday. The Aggies, despite wearing a mere 1-1 record compared to ULM’s 2-0 mark, are heavy favorites in this weekend’s gridiron action
The Warhawks have earned their record by defeating the Army Black Knights and the Lamar Cardinals, an FCS squad. Both were home games and low-scoring affairs, with ULM triumphing by scores of 17-13 (with one Warhawk touchdown coming on an interception return) and 24-14, respectively. They’ve been effective at preventing teams from scoring, but have had significant difficulty in putting points on the board themselves.
On the other side of things, the Aggies have had no trouble putting points on the board. Their 85 points through two games is the most by an Aggie team in the first two contests of the season since 2018, where they also scored 85 combined against Northwestern State and Clemson. Quarterback Conner Weigman has impressed with his passing acumen, and is quickly making a name for himself as one of the top signal callers in the conference. All this, however, despite a demoralizing loss to Miami in which the defense for Texas A&M football faltered in a big way. The Hurricanes were able to repeatedly victimize the Aggie secondary for multiple deep shots behind heavy protections up front that neutralized A&M’s defensive line. These are the two main storylines for the Aggies in this tuneup game: can the offense continue to produce against what has been a better-than-expected scoring defense? And can the defense for the Aggies build some confidence headed into conference play?
My guess is yes to both.
