The Texas A&M Aggies and the Nevada Wolf Pack face off on Saturday in college football action.
The Texas A&M Aggies were once again dismissed by the preseason pollsters but Kevin Sumlin’s team is letting their play do the talking as they are off to a 2-0 start. The Texas A&M offense is averaging 47 points and 464 yards per game and they have been unstoppable so far. Aggies QB Kyle Allen has completed 64.1 percent of his passes for five touchdowns and an interception while Kyler Murray has seen mop up duty. Tra Carson leads the Texas A&M rushing stack with 155 yards and two touchdowns and Christian Kirk is the leading receiver with 10 catches and two touchdowns and Ricky Seals-Jones has nine catches. The Texas A&M defense is allowing 20 points and 326 yards per game with 10 sacks, tow fumble recoveries, and an interception. Donavan Wilson is Texas A&M’s leading tackler with 12 and Shaan Washington and Armani Watts each have 11 tackles. Texas A&M looks like they have enough offensive firepower to be in every game this season.

The Nevada Wolf Pack hit the road for the first time the season and losing last week in a one sided game to Arizona. The Nevada offense is averaging 25.5 points and 361 yards per game. Nevada QB Tyler Stewart has completed 59.6 percent of his passes with three touchdowns and an interception and he has rushed for 81 yards and a score. Don Jackson leads the Wolf Pack rushing attack with 215 yards and two touchdowns and James Butler is averaging 4.3 yards per carry while Hasaan Henderson and Jerico Richardson each have 11 receptions to lead the Nevada receivers. The Nevada defense is allowing 30.5 points and 448.5 yards per game with three sacks and a fumble recovery. Asauni Rufus leads Nevada with 22 tackles and Brian Lane Jr. and Jordan Dobrich have 12 tackles each. Nevada is going to have to create turnovers to stay in this game.
Texas A&M is 4-1 against the spread in their last five non-conference games, 2-6 against the spread in their last eight home games, and 10-3 against the spread in their last 13 September games. Nevada is 5-2 against the spread in their last seven road games, 9-4 against the spread following a loss, and 1-5 against the spread in their last six games overall.
This looks like a bundle of points but the Aggies at home are rolling and I don’t see Nevada being able to stop them and I don’t see them having a passing game to even dress up the score when it gets out of control.
