Most of our followers know that around this time every year we ask our poker-loving fans to indulge us as we focus on our favorite team –the fightin’ Texas A&M football team—as they begin SEC play.
The fun begins this Saturday night at 6 P.M. at AT&T Stadium in Arlington between #14 Texas A&M and the Arkansas Razorbacks. Will it be the Aggies or the Hogs who win the Southwest Classic?
It’s not just that the Aggies are 3-0 and the Hogs are 1-2 coming into this contest that gets our blood pumping. It’s the revamped Texas A&M-John Chavis defense, led by DEs Myles Garrett and Dae Dae Hall leading the SEC with 15 sacks, the return from injury of some of our experienced linebackers, and the outstanding defensive line that’s been winning the battle in the trenches. And it’s the always explosive Aggie offense, with QB Kyle Allen and his uber-talented group of wide-receivers, including Christian Kirk, Speedy Noil, Josh Reynolds, Ricky Seals Jones and a host of others, along with a vastly improved run game that has mostly featured Tra Carson. And don’t ever forget about dual-threat Kyler Murray!
Of course, the Hogs are desperate for a win to keep their young season from going under. One huge thing they have going for them is their offensive line – the largest (in weight) O-line in both college and professional football. They would like nothing better than to maintain their record for allowing no sacks against the team with the most sacks in the conference. Not only that, but the Razorbacks are currently leading the SEC in passing yards with 916. Go figure.
So it’s time to launch our first round of “Predict the Score.” In case you’ve forgotten the rules:
Whoever comes closest to predicting the final score of the game, without going over, will win this Suited Speed Felt, Folding Poker Table Top, with carrying bag. If there’s a tie, whoever made the correct prediction first is the winner, so you should probably go ahead and do it now!
