The Texas A&M Aggies are going to be favored for obvious reasons as there's a talent gap, and they're considered a top-15 team in the country. However, the Moody Coliseum is never an easy place to play, and the crowd will be out in full force for this one. Also, SMU is digging deep defensively and are playing well out the gate despite the lack of competition. SMU will be up for this one and could control the pace and make it ugly. Give me the Mustangs and the points.
