The South Carolina Gamecocks and Texas A&M Aggies do battle Saturday in week 8 SEC college football action at Williams-Brice Stadium. The Texas A&M Aggies look to get a game above a .500 record. The South Carolina Gamecocks look to build on their 3-game winning streak.

The Texas A&M Aggies have lost 4 straight road games. Haynes King is completing 58.2 percent of his passes for 763 yards, 5 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Evan Stewart and Ainias Smith have combined for 594 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns, while Moose Muhammad III has 13 receptions.

The South Carolina Gamecocks have won 7 of their last 9 home games. Spencer Rattler is completing 65.9 percent of his passes for 1,298 yards, 5 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. Antwane Wells Jr. and Jalen Brooks have combined for 710 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns, while MarShawn Lloyd has 15 receptions.

The Aggies are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in October. The Gamecocks are 4-13 ATS in their last 17 conference games. The under is 5-1 in Aggies last 6 games overall. The under is 14-6 in Gamecocks last 20 home games. The Aggies are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The favorite is 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

The Texas A&M Aggies are probably the better, more talented team, but they still have issues finishing drives offensively, and you can run all over their defense. The South Carolina Gamecocks are playing their best ball of the season, are fresh off a big road win over Kentucky, and they have a playmaking quarterback who is getting more and more accurate by the week. This is a winnable game for the Gamecocks. Give me the points with the home team.
