Texas A&M Football Slated For Evening Showdown with MSU
Many Texas A&M football fans have been recently upset with the lack of home night games in the Aggies’ conference slate this year. It’s certainly a bit out of the norm for the Aggies over the past two years, as three out of four home conference games were evening kicks in 2021, and two out of three (plus Miami) were night games in 2022. Thus far this year, Texas A&M football has squared off with Auburn and South Carolina at 11 AM, and have had a couple of road games in the early slot as well.
Those fans clamoring for a night kick have finally gotten their wish, as the SEC announced today that the Aggies will square off with the Mississippi State Bulldogs at 6:30 PM on November 11–the final home conference game of the year for the Aggies.
Texas A&M football has had trouble recently against the Bulldogs, going 0-2 in the previous two matchups, and are only .500 overall against MSU at home. This is a prime chance to flip that narrative on its head, however, as the Bulldogs are way down this year and may be missing their starting QB. Zach Arnett has transformed the Bulldogs offense into a bully-ball unit from their previous identity as an air-raid attack, and it hasn’t gone great for them so far. Their only conference win so far was a 7-3 decision over Arkansas, one of the ugliest games of the year in the division. Other than that game, they were blown out by LSU and Alabama, lost a barn-burner to South Carolina, and are coming off a loss at Auburn. Never take this win for granted, but this should be one that the Ags win comfortably.
