TV:

The Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns head to College Station to take on the Texas A&M Aggies in week 3 college football action.

The Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns will look to bounce back after suffering their first loss of the season in a 66-42 shootout, falling to Tulsa. Jordan Davis completed 21 of his 32 pass attempts for 309 yards and a pair of touchdowns in addition to an interception. Trey Ragas led the team with 130 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries, while Elijah Mitchell added 84 yards and a touchdown with his 8 touches on the ground while also taking his lone receptions out of the backfield 19 yards for a TD. Jordan Davis racked up a pair of scores on the ground, taking his team-high 14 carries and turning it into 60 yards. Ryheem Malone led the Cajuns’ receivers with 8 catches for 119 yards, while Keenan Barnes hauled in 6 balls for 102 yards and a touchdown. Defensively, a Terik Miller fumble recovery highlighted an otherwise horrendous outing by the ULL defense, which allowed a whopping 667 yards of total offense, including 424 yards on the ground.

USA TODAY Sports

The Texas A&M Aggies bounced back from their epic week 1 collapse by earning their first win of the year, a 24-14 victory over Nicholls. Kellen Mond threw for 105 yards and a touchdown on 12 of 21 passing, while Jake Hubenak completed 12 of his 15 pass attempts or 93 yards. Kendall Bussey put up 97 yards and a touchdown with his 15 carries, while Trayveon Williams put up a score of his own while collecting 53 yards with his 11 touches. Christian Kirk hauled in the lone touchdown grab for the Aggies, while also leading the way with 6 catches for 47 yards, and Clyde Chriss, along with Jhamon Ausbon, caught 3 passes each in the win. Defensively, the Aggies racked up a pair of sacks, while also forcing a pair of fumbles and recording an interception, all while allowing 338 yards of total offense.

Louisiana-Lafayette is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a loss of 20 points or more while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 non-conference games. Texas A&M is 7-19 ATS in their last 26 home games and 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games overall while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games against the Sun Belt.

So we have Louisiana-Lafayette, who couldn’t keep points off of the board if their lives depended on it last week, against an A&M squad who fell apart in week 1 and let Nicholls hang around for almost the entire game in week 2. I think the latter is more of a problem as ULL could hang around with A&M if not pull ahead of them if this game becomes a track meet. I think the Aggies’ issues are far worse than many are letting on at this point, so I’ll take a shot with the Ragin’ Cajuns and the points.
