Why Florida can cover

With Heisman contender Kyle Trask leading the charge at quarterback, offense is the calling card for the Gators this season, but there are a few defensive strengths to rely on against Texas A&M. Florida ranks second in the SEC with eight sacks already this season, and Texas A&M is currently second-worst in the league in completion percentage, connecting on only 57.3 percent of their attempts. On the margins, Florida might have an advantage on special teams, with the second-best net punting average (48.7 yards per punt) in the SEC, and the Gators have committed only eight penalties this season, compared to 15 for the Aggies. 

On the other side, Florida should be able to move the ball through the air, as Texas A&M is allowing a scary 10.4 yards per attempt this season. Finally, the Gators are above-average on third down so far this season, getting a first down on 52.6 percent of attempts, and Texas A&M is the second-worst team in the SEC in allowing opponents to convert 57.3 percent of the time on third down.

Why Texas A&M can cover

Florida has been tremendous in the first two games but, defensively, the Gators haven't played up to their talent level. Florida ranks as the second-worst defense in the SEC on a yardage basis, allowing 471 yards per game, and the Gators are giving up 327.5 passing yards per game. Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond, who has thrown for almost 8,000 yards and 56 touchdowns in his career, should be able to attack Florida's secondary, and Mond also has 1,351 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns in his four-year tenure at the helm. 

Elsewhere, the Aggies have been effective running the ball this season, averaging 5.2 yards per carry and ranking in the top five in the SEC at 149 yards per game. Texas A&M is also best in the conference at avoiding sacks, giving up only one in the first two weeks, and the Aggies are a top-five team in the SEC on third down, converting 51.9 percent of their chances.
