We know, now that the college football season is heading into week three, that some of our longtime followers are waiting for us to begin our notoriously biased series focused on our favorite team, the Texas A&M football team.   You’re probably expecting our well-known “predict-the-winner” contests. Maybe it’s because you’re craving one of our very cool prizes. Maybe it’s because, like us, you’re a rabid Aggie football fan. Or, maybe you’re all just poker player who like to bet on things.

Well, in case you forgot, we only play “predict-the-winner” for SEC games! In other words, we still have one more non-conference game to play –against Nevada — before the real fun begins. (Unless you consider 18 consecutive non-conference wins, the longest active streak in the nation, to be fun!) Although we loved watching the Aggies win convincingly over Arizona State and Ball State, and could not be more pumped about our revitalized “Chavis” defense as well as some of our exciting, and serious contenders for super-stardom, we know it doesn’t get real until we play our SEC opponents.

So to get you all ready for SEC football, the following are some SEC-West highlights:

The Aggies first SEC battle will be against Arkansas on Sept. 26th. The Razorbacks suffered an embarrassing loss against Toledo last week and have to face Texas Tech before playing the Aggies. Let’s just say that doesn’t look good for the Hogs.

The Tide will play Ole Miss this week and will be counting on their defense to stop the highly explosive offense from Mississippi. And Auburn, who looked nothing like they were supposed to look in their narrow win against Jacksonville State, have a scary SEC contest against LSU this week.

So to sum it up, at least for the SEC West, the Aggies will continue to impress and let guys from deep in the depth charts play a lot of minutes to get them ready for conference play. And the other teams will be figuring things out, which they better do quickly before the Ags run the table.

We sure had a lot of losers this weekend! In what is now being called “Upset Saturday,” there were a lot of losers in college football,  a lot of losers in the rankings, a lot of losers in the SEC West. As Texas A&M went down to defeat against Mississippi State in Starkville, almost all of you who made a prediction of the final score of that game lost because you, like the pundits, picked the Aggies.

In fact, we had only two who chose MSU in our contest.

Unfortunately for Aggie fans, Dak Prescott and the Bulldogs were just about perfect, and the Ags not only had around 14 dropped balls and many errant passes, but were not impressive on defense or special teams either. There’s a lot to fix, and next Saturday the Ags face Ole Miss . . . the team with the biggest upset in the SEC, beating Alabama. So, Texas A&M dropped from 6th to 14th in the rankings, while MSU and Ole’ Miss jumped to a tie for 3rd. Among the other losers? Oregon, Oklahoma, USC, LSU. One thing is certain, there will be even more surprises before this season close
