What you need to know about Texas A&M Aggies
The Aggies were one of the nation's best teams last year and some felt they were snubbed from the College Football Playoff field. Quarterback Kellen Mond has moved on to the NFL, but Texas A&M returns several key pieces on offense. Running back Isaiah Spiller is one of the best in the SEC and he's coming off a 1,000-yard campaign. Tight end Jalen Wydermyer is also a top-tier talent.
Haynes King takes over at quarterback and he could be the x-factor the the Aggies this season. He's unproven, but talented, and if they want to be in the playoff mix, he'll need to have a big year.
What you need to know about Kent State
The Golden Flashes led the nation in offense last season in their short season. They piled up over 600 yards of total offense per game. Many of the key pieces from that unit are back, including quarterback Dustin Crum and running back Marquez Cooper.
The Texas A&M defense will be a huge challenge for Kent State. But this is a team that averaged a whopping 57.3 points per game in its last three contests last season, so the Golden Flashes could have the firepower to at least keep this one competitive.
