We had a lot of final score predictions for this week’s big match-up between the Texas A&M Aggies and the Mississippi State Bulldogs, but our winner, with the closest prediction of 30-21, is an Old Ag himself, so he was not only happy to win this week’s prize of an NCAA Decorative Mirror, but also thrilled to have the opportunity to enjoy the Aggies incredibly well balanced win over MSU.
The Ags had an explosive offense in the first half, getting off to a two touchdown lead with some brilliant play-calling, a close-t0- perfect Kyle Allen, some mixing and matching with Tra Carson, Christian Kirk and company and Josh Reynolds making some monster catches. When they sputtered a bit in the second half, the defense looking formidable with Myles Garrett, Dae Dae Hall, Amani Watts, Donavon Wilson and too many other stand-outs to name, stepped up big time to hold Dak Prescott and crew to their lowest scoring game of the season.
After all was said and done, the Ags are now 5-0 on the season, 2-0 in the SEC and are going into their “bye” week ranked #9 in the AP poll. Which, of course, for all big-time football fans, sets up what has to be one of the biggest games of the season and in the country on October 17 – The Aggies vs. the Tide. That’s one no college football fan will want to miss. Congrats to the Aggies, and to Mr. Paul Marvin.
We’ll see you at the poker tables Mr. Marvin.
