Comments

Texas A&M leads the all-time young series between these two teams 6-0. I don’t see any reason why A&M wouldn’t win this season unless that Aggies have a flurry of turnovers. A&M has the better offense, defense and they have seasoned veteran quarterback who will break multiple Aggie career passing records. I think USC has had its annual big upset knocking off Auburn a few weeks ago. You never know though, any team in the SEC not named Vanderbilt can beat any other team in the conference on a given day. This one won’t be a blowout though.
