The Texas A&M Aggies are battle tested but are off to a 4-0 start to the season as they once again fly under the radar in the SEC. The Texas A&M offense is averaging 43 points, 269.2 rushing yards, and 276.5 passing yards per game and they have turned the ball over 6 times. Aggies QB Trevor Knight has completed 53.2 percent of his passes with 7 touchdowns and 2 interceptions and he has rushed for 308 yards and 5 touchdowns. Trayveon Williams is Texas A&M’s top rusher with 389 yards and 3 touchdowns and Keith Ford has 210 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Aggies are loaded at receiver with Christian Kirk with 21 catches and 3 touchdowns, Josh Reynolds with 17 catches and 3 touchdowns, and Ricky Seals-Jones with 10 catches. The Texas A&M defense is allowing 16 points and 390.8 yards per game with 4 interceptions, 4 fumble recoveries, and 13 sacks. Justin Evans leads the Aggies with 33 tackles, Shaan Washington has 27 tackles, and Nick Harvey has 26 tackles. Texas A&M has been fast starters in recent years and haven’t been able to close it out.

South Carolina is 3-7 against the spread against a team with a winning record, 7-3 against the spread following a game that hey didn’t cover the point spread, and 1-5 against the spread after allowing less than 20 points their previous game. Texas A&M is 4-0 against the spread in their last 4 games, 8-17 against the spread in their last 25 SEC games, and 4-1 against the spread following a win.

This is a ton of points but I can see Texas A&M scoring quickly at time and winning by greater than the number here.
