The Texas A&M Aggies and the Arkansas Razorbacks face off on Saturday at Dallas Cowboys Stadium for a rivalry matchup in college football action.
The Texas A&M Aggies are off to a 4-0 start and after an early Fall where all of the talk was about Johnny Manziel not being the QB any longer, the talk has turned to the high powered Aggies offense and jut how far they can go this season. Texas A&M Head Coach Kevin Sumlin has a history of coaching QB”s and this year is no different as Kenny Hill has completed 69.8 percent of his passes with 13 touchdowns and just one interception. Trey Williams leads the TAM ground attack averaging 7.2 yards per carry with four touchdowns and Brandon Williams is averaging 6.0 yards per carry. Malcome Kennedy is the Aggies leading receiver with 30 catches and a touchdown and Ricky Seals-Jones has 16 catches and three touchdowns. The Texas A&M defense has two interceptions, 17 sacks, and a fumble recovery as opposing offenses just try and keep pace. Howard Mathews has 27 tackles, Myles Garrett has 5.5 sacks, and Justin Bass has 23 tackles. Texas A&M struggled on defense last season but they appear to be improved there.

Since losing their opener to Auburn the Arkansas Razorbacks have won their last three games and appear to be a much improved team over what we have seen in recent years. While the Hogs have a lot to be excited about they are still looking for their first SEC win in two years and will have another chance to get one here. QB Brandon Allen looks to be getting better as he has completed 61.4 percent of his passes with eight touchdowns and an interception. Alex Collins anchors the Arkansas rushing attack averaging 7.5 yards per carry with five touchdowns and Jonathan Williams averages 8.1 yards per carry and has seven touchdowns. The passing game has been limited and Keon Hatcher is the only Arkansas receiver with double-digit receptions with 10 and he also has two touchdowns. The Razorbacks defense has produced three interceptions, three fumble recoveries, and eight sacks. Martrell Spaight has 30 tackles, Brooks Ellis has 24 tackles, and Taiwan Johnson has 3.5 sacks. While Arkansas has looked sharp their past three games, the competition takes a big step up here.
Texas A&M is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight SEC games, 2-6 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 2-10 against the spread in their last 12 neutral site games. Arkansas is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games, 2-5 against the spread following a win, and 0-4 against the spread in their last four neutral site games.
The total in this one is set sky high at 70 but I still can see it going over despite both defenses being better than most perceive so my free pick is the over. My stronger pick is on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
