The Texas A&M Aggies and the Tennessee Volunteers face off on Saturday in College Station in a SEC college football week 6 battle of 5-0 ranked teams.

The Texas A&M Aggies are off to a 5-0 start and while they have beaten two ranked teams, they face their stiffest test thus far. The Texas A&M offense is averaging 39.2 points and 521 yards per game and they have turned the ball over 8 times. Aggies QB Trevor Knight has completed 54.1 percent of his passes with 7 touchdowns and 3 interceptions and he has rushed for 392 yards and 6 touchdowns. Texas A&M running back Trayveon Williams is averaging 9.0 yards per carry and he has 4 touchdowns and Christian Kirk is the top receiver with 33 catches and 3 touchdowns and Josh Reynolds ahs 20 catches and 3 touchdowns. Defensively the Aggies are allowing 15.4 points and 388.2 yards per game with 5 interceptions, 5 fumble recoveries, and 16 sacks. Myles Garrett missed last week’s game for A&M but Shaan Washington is leading the Aggies in tackles with 38, Justin Evans has 37 tackles, and Nick Harvey has 31 tackles. Texas A&M has wilted in the second half of the season the past few years and they are looking to avoid that this season.

USA TODAY Sports

The Tennessee Volunteers are coming off of a monster win at Georgia in a game that the lead changed 3 times in the final 2 minutes. The Tennessee offense is averaging 33 points and 381.6 yards per game and they have turned the ball over 9 times. Vols QB Joshua Dobbs has completed 57.9 percent of his passes with 13 touchdowns and 6 interceptions and he has rushed for 267 yards and 5 touchdowns. Jalen Hurd is Tennessee’s top rusher with 407 yards and 2 touchdowns and Josh Malone is the top receiver with 15 catches 5 touchdowns while Jauan Jennings and Alvin Kamara each have 12 catches. The Tennessee defense is allowing 23 points and 360.8 yards per game with 3 interceptions, 7 fumble recoveries, and 8 sacks. Todd Kelly Jr. is the Volunteers top tackler with 32, Colton Jumper has 29 tackles, and Micah Abernathy has 28 tackles but Jalen Reeves-Maybin missed last game with an injury. Tennessee plays back to back road games after playing at home and at a neutral site to start the season.

Texas A&M is 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games, 8-18 against the spread in their last 26 SEC games, and 1-5 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread. Tennessee is 4-0 against the spread in their last 4 road games, 6-0 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 5-2 against the spread in their last 7 games.

Tennessee has needed big time comebacks in their last 2 games and normally the luck starts running out on teams who win like that. Tennessee’s defense looked vulnerable at times and I see A&M moving the ball and for the Aggies pass rush to get after Dobbs. I see a Texas A&M win and cover.
