Challenges for Texas A&M

The Aggie’s biggest challenge is stopping or at least slowing down the Razorback’s strong rushing attack. Arkansas, tenth nationally at running the ball, is piling up 243 yards per game on average so far this season. RB Raheim Sanders and QB KJ Jefferson are the ring leaders of the Hog running game. Sander’s is fourth nationally in rushing yardage gained with 440. He has three touchdowns. Jefferson has 169 yards gained also with three touchdowns. For the Aggies to have a shot at earning a win on Saturday, they’ve got to keep these two dangerous players contained.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:00 PM CT (7:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the ESPN Network.
