Texas A&M football averages 5 YPC or better
It’s been rough sledding in the rush game for the Aggies thus far this year, but I think that script will begin to flip in the latter half of the year, as Texas A&M football has already faced the toughest defensive fronts that they will all season. Plain and simple, this is a defensive front seven that the Aggies should dominate, and I see plenty of opportunity for Le’Veon Moss and company to make an impact quickly.
Max Johnson notches at least 3 total touchdowns
This one doesn’t necessarily jive with the 33-10 final score prediction that I’ve been trotting out all week, but, after all, this is bold prediction time! This is a good opponent to help cure some of the red zone woes the Aggies have been experiencing since Max took over the signal caller position, in any case. We saw early on against Tennessee that Johnson has the ability to run for a short yardage score when needed, and with the return of Noah Thomas and an extended rest for Evan Stewart and company over the bye, Aggie fans have to feel good about the prospect of increased execution down inside the 20 yard line.
Jaylan Henderson makes an appearance
I am in no way predicting the emergence of a two-quarterback system for Texas A&M football. Rather, I am Boldly Predicting that the Aggies will whip up enough of a blowout for us to see the Fresno State transfer take a few snaps before the game is done. I would love to see freshman Marcel Reed, who has by all accounts progressed quickly in his understanding of the offense, but I think Henderson is ahead of Reed on the depth chart at the moment. In any case, I see this one being enough of a gap in late third/early fourth quarter that some of the backups get some time. On the defensive side, I’d love to see more of Gabriel Brownlow-Dindy, and if things go well for the Aggies, then I wouldn’t be surprised to see him make a play or two late in the game.
