Comments

Here are two teams coming off disappointing losses (aren’t they all disappointing?). State falling at home to LSU and A&M dropping a game to the Razorbacks. I think the Aggies will have the edge in this one. They have a very solid pass defense and are playing at home so the odds are they’ll prevail. The Bulldogs could steal one here though. They have a tough defense and are desperate to get back on the winning track while A&M less is effective after losing their starting QB for the season.
