The Texas A&M Aggies and Miami Hurricanes do battle Saturday in a week 3 college football showdown at Kyle Field. The Miami Hurricanes look for their second 3-0 start in the last 3 years. The Texas A&M Aggies need a win to get a game above a .500 record.

The Miami Hurricanes have won 5 of their last 7 road games. Tyler Van Dyke is completing 73.9 percent of his passes for 456 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception. Xavier Resterpo and Michael Redding III have combined for 248 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns, while Brashard Smith has 6 receptions. The Miami Hurricanes ground game is averaging 241 yards per contest, and Henry Parrish Jr. leads the way with 217 yards and 4 touchdowns. Defensively, Miami is allowing 10 points and 286.5 yards per game. Corey Flagg Jr. leads the Miami Hurricanes with 10 tackles, Jacob Lichtenstein has 1 sack and James Williams has 1 interception.

The Texas A&M Aggies have won 5 of their last 6 home games. Haynes King is completing 64.7 percent of his passes for 461 yards, 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Ainias Smith and Evan Stewart have combined for 290 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns, while Yulkeith Brown has 4 receptions. The Texas A&M Aggies ground game is averaging 99.5 yards per contest, and Devon Achane leads the way with 108 yards and 2 touchdowns. Defensively, Texas A&M is allowing 8.5 points and 256.5 yards per game. Antonio Johnson leads the Texas A&M Aggies with 17 tackles, LT Overton has 1 sack and Jardin Gilbert has 1 interception.

The Hurricanes are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 non-conference games. The Aggies are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. ACC and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 20-8-2 in Hurricanes last 30 road games. The under is 5-1 in Aggies last 6 non-conference games.

Neither team looked great last week, but I’ll chalk some of it up to both clubs looking ahead to this game, which will make or break playoff hopes for both sides. With that said, there’s some real concern for the Texas A&M Aggies who haven’t gotten any offense going through 2 games. Texas A&M cant run the ball and is 102nd in total offense and 102nd in scoring offense. The Miami-FL Hurricanes have one of the better quarterbacks in the country, and he currently has a top-20 rushing attack supporting him. Texas A&M is currently 86th in run defense. Miami will have its chances to steal this game on the road. I’ll grab the points with the Canes.
