The Texas A&M Aggies need a victory here to snap their tough two-game losing streak. Kyle Allen is completing 56.8 percent of his passes for 1,625 yards, 14 touchdowns and six interceptions. Allen has thrown four picks in his last two games. Christian Kirk and Josh Reynolds have combined for 1,083 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Ricky Seals-Jones has 24 receptions. The Texas A&M Aggies ground game is averaging 147.1 yards per contest, and Tra Carson leads the way with 524 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Texas A&M is allowing 24.1 points and 391.6 yards per game. Armani Watts leads the Aggies with 69 tackles, Donovan Wilson has three interceptions and Myles Garrett has 8.5 sacks.
The Gamecocks are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a S.U. win and 0-5 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Aggies are 8-2 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games.
While Texas A&M has looked like straight trash lately, the Aggies are still far better than South Carolina. The Gamecocks don't play defense and can't score with issues at quarterback. While I don't love this game, I'll take the Aggies by three touchdowns.
