Challenges for Texas A&M

The Aggies are fresh off a big win over Kentucky. They’ve got an opportunity to win their third straight SEC contest with a victory over the Gamecocks. They’ve got to focus on preparing for a dangerous Gamecock squad and not be celebrating all week over the UK win. A trip to Columbia, S.C. is no picnic either.

Challenges for South Carolina

The Gamecocks have a ton of players questionable for Saturday’s game including QB Jake Bentley. South Carolina is the clear underdog here. It wouldn’t shock the world though if the Gamecocks were to win.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 2:30 pm CT (1:30 CT) and can be seen on the SEC Network.
