College Station, TX - With three games left to go in their regular season, the Texas A&M football team attempts to finish out the season with a 10-2 record, capturing three straight wins against Mississippi State University, Louisiana State University, and Missouri University.
But before the Aggies can dream of having a two loss season, they need to tackle the task of wining their final home game against the Bulldogs from Starkville.
Mississippi State (4-4; 1-3 SEC) enters Saturday’s matchup, against Texas A&M (7-2; 3-2), with hopes of walking out winners, finding themselves not only one step closer towards bowl eligibility but toward a winning conference record as well.
Some players have more to focus on than others, as the Bulldogs’ starting quarterback, Dak Prescott’s appearance will be unknown as Prescott’s mother passed away Sunday morning, battling cancer. If Prescott is unable to make the start, veteran Tyler Russell, should be ready to lead his team to victory at Kyle Field. Whichever of the two leads the offense Saturday, two things are certain: both quarterbacks are dangerous in the pass game and dangerous in the run game.
Regardless of the starter, the Aggies are looking to continue their momentum on defense, showcasing good improvement against Vanderbilt and UTEP. Texas A&M looks to keep Mississippi State’s score low, while continuing their offensive scoring average, of at least 40 points per game.
While everyone will be watching for another spectacular showing of skill and athleticism from Texas A&M Heisman quarterback, Johnny Manziel, and star receiver, Mike Evans, the duo take the field on the ninth with the mindset of simply competing against another divisional opponent.
All the pieces to Saturday’s puzzle should come together for quite an exciting divisional matchup, as the Bulldogs and the Aggies kickoff at 2:30 in College Station, TX.
