No. 21 Texas A&M @ Mississippi State
Current Records: Texas A&M 2-1; Mississippi State 1-2
What to Know
Get ready for an SEC battle as the Mississippi State Bulldogs and the Texas A&M Aggies will face off at 4 p.m. ET Saturday at Davis Wade Stadium at Scott Field. A&M will be strutting in after a victory while MSU will be stumbling in from a defeat.
The Bulldogs found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 24-2 punch to the gut against the Kentucky Wildcats last week. QB K.J. Costello had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: besides failing to produce a single touchdown, he threw four interceptions with only 4.22 yards per passing attempt.
Meanwhile, the Aggies came out on top in a nail-biter against the Florida Gators last week, sneaking past 41-38. A&M's RB Isaiah Spiller was on fire, rushing for two TDs and 174 yards on 27 carries. Spiller had some trouble finding his footing against the Alabama Crimson Tide two weeks ago, so this was a step in the right direction.
MSU is expected to lose this next one by 5. They have failed bettors playing the spread in their past two games, so buyers beware.
MSU is now 1-2 while the Aggies sit at a mirror-image 2-1. A pair of defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Bulldogs haven't allowed a rushing touchdown yet this season. A&M is not quite as good, but they are no chumps, either: they rank 17th in the nation when it comes to rushing touchdowns allowed, with only two on the season. Looks like the running backs might have a tough go of it.
