Texas A&M vs Mississippi State Prediction & Pick
The Aggies have scored an SEC-low 85 points in four games. After getting upset by Appalachian State as a big home favorite 17-14, Texas A&M held on for a pair of low-scoring wins over Miami and Arkansas. The defense has done a terrific job, but the offense has few weapons and sub-par quarterback play.
Now A&M travels for their first true road game. Despite getting slowed down by LSU in their first SEC game two weeks ago, Mississippi State still has some strong offensive weapons and a quality defensive front seven. Bulldogs QB Will Rogers tossed 6 TD passes and hit 12 different receivers for a total of 406 yards as Mississippi State buried Bowling Green last week, 45-14. That was the Bulldogs third game this season scoring at least 39 points. Head coach Mike Leach can alter the pace and trip up A&M's top-tier defense with more wrinkles.
Mississippi State won at then No. 15 Texas A&M 26-22 last season. Bulldogs QB Rodgers passed for more than 400 yards with 3 touchdowns. A similar yardage discrepancy is projected this Saturday after the Bulldogs out-gained A&M 426-297 last year.
Final Score Prediction: Mississippi State: 30 | Texas A&M: 17
