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

Here are a couple of thoughts to help you predict the score of the upcoming Texas A&M Aggies vs. the Mississippi State Bulldogs football game this Saturday in Starkville.

Kenny Hill has 27 completions of more than 20 yards, which means the Aggie offense has more than 400 passing yards per game. At least seven receivers have 100 receiving yards in five games. Those guys are hard to stop, too, averaging eight yards after the catch. And, MSU has allowed the most passing yards in the SEC per game. Sounds like Kenny Trill just has to throw the ball around a lot to win this one.

But not so fast. Dak Prescott, the 6’2”, 230 QB for the Bulldogs is pretty impressive, too. He’s a confident thrower with great accuracy and he’s the team’s second leading rusher . . . kinda like someone we know very well. They also make the pass look like a run, so much so that our safeties will have to be very careful not to over-commit. And they have numerous offensive weapons as well.

Keys: Ags need to protect Hill, strike fast and challenge the Bulldog’s secondary. Ags defense needs to put lots of pressure on Prescott. If both things happen, we predict the Aggies will win it.

After their awesome come-from-behind victory last week against the Razorbacks, the #6 Texas A&M football team travels to Starkville this Saturday, Oct. 4, to take on their next SEC opponent, the #12 Mississippi State Bulldogs, who have one of the best rushing defenses and sack attacks in the country. Not only are they probably the largest team the Ags will face all season (yes, even bigger than the Hogs) but, according to Kenny Hill, “they do so much stuff up front, it makes you think more. It’s going be tough just holding up protection.”

On the other hand, The Aggie’s offensive line is more than up to the challenge. And, if the O-line can hold off some of those big guys long enough for Hill to make some moves, there just may be a whole lot of passing yards from A&M’s powerful receivers, who will probably be able to overpower MSU’s secondary. Still, MSU has Dak Prescott, a complete quarterback who is off to a great start, beating LSU in Death Valley before last week’s bye. So, is it a high-scoring game? Too close to call?

It’s “Predict the Score” time again as the Texas A&M Aggies take on the Arkansas Razorbacks in Dallas at 2:30 CST this coming Saturday. After blowing through their opener against the Gamecocks in South Carolina, thereby shocking the football world, and then rolling over and through Lamar, Rice and SMU, as Billy Liucci of TexAgs recently wrote, “Let the (real) games begin (again).

The Aggies, who have been amazingly good (as in ranked 6th) will now be thoroughly tested by facing Arkansas, #14 Mississippi State in Starkville, #10 Ole Miss at Kyle and finally traveling to #2 Alabama in what many call the toughest 4-game stretch in program history.Texas A&M Aggies vs Arkansas Razorbacks

The Razorbacks are not the same team as they were last season, in case you haven’t been paying attention. They own an SEC-leading rushing attack, with Alex Collins, Jonathan Williams and Korliss Marshall combining for 188 yards on 36 carries. Their QB, Brandon Allen threw for two touchdowns and ran for another. In other words, Arkansas is playing tough, explosive and mad, and the Aggies need to forget about their own 4-0 start and play like they have something to prove.

The Aggies have all the talent in the world, especially on offense. It’s certainly enough to beat the Razorbacks; there’s no doubt about that. But does their much-improved defense have the strength and determination to stop the Hogs’ rushing attack? We’ll see very soon.
