Texas A&M Football is the Most Physical Team the Cowboys Have Played This Year

This is a big one. The Cowboys, though they are a run-heavy team, have not faced off against a lot of teams with SEC size this year. The closest they came was Texas, who do have pretty decent lines, but even without some of the top dogs on the defensive line, the Aggies will still be up there with the best of them.

At the second level of the defense, they'll have to square off with Taurean York, who's looking to cap off a breakout freshman year, and the likes of super senior Chris Russell and transfer JD Davis, who is very rested after coming back from injury. Daymion Sanford could figure in there as well in a big way; the staff is really high on his potential.

The Aggie safeties can show something as well. Demani Richardson's Aggie swan song will figure to be a big one for the fifth-year player, and Bryce Anderson will be ready to finish strong leading into what will doubtless be a starring role on the defense next year. Young Dalton Brooks is coming on strong, and Jacoby Mathews will be looking to solidify his starting spot in the lineup.

On the other side of the ball, this is a mostly-intact offensive line with some now-SEC veteran players. The Cowboys have been pretty vulnerable on the ground, and the stable of Aggie backs should find some success up front, wearing down the Cowboys over the course of the game.
