Texas A&M leads 7-0

Comments

South Carolina pulled off a 1-point win over Vandy in Columbia. That may very well be the Gamecock’s final win of 2021. Missouri could provide the ‘Cocks with a second league victory. This week’s game in College State could get ugly for the Gamecocks. Texas A&M seems to be surging and their new starting quarterback, Zach Calzada, is threading needles with his passes. Texas A&M wins by at least 24.
