COLLEGE STATION -- The Texas A&M football team is certainly feeling better about things this week than they have all month. After three consecutive losses, the Aggies snapped their losing streak last Saturday with a 49-35 win over Iowa State.
The Aggies would like to make it two in a row and are favored by 3 heading into Saturday's game against Colorado. The Buffaloes are coming off a 58-0 loss to Missouri last week.
Texas A&M Head Coach Mike Sherman was ask if he thought it was a plus or minus to face a team after a loss.
"I always like a team to win when they come in. Good teams with character, you know they had a tough game, we've had tough games before, and I never bet against a team with character after a loss. They'll have a tough week of practice and want to get that behind them. So they're going to work real hard this week and be ready to play. I think it's very premature to evaluate, particularly this year as I'm learning in college football, one team one week to the next. A team can get on a roll scoring points and it’s hard to stop sometimes. Watching the Missouri game, they just hit on some things and -- you know, not to say Missouri's not a good football team…they are. But Colorado, I've watched them before in games we've studied, and they're a good football team. Missouri put it all together the other day and everything was perfect, and the game fell to them. Take nothing away from Missouri, they're a heck of a football team, but I don't know that they're that much better than other people,” said Sherman.
Texas A&M will host Colorado at 1:05 p.m. Saturday. The Buffaloes hold a 5-2 advantage in the series. Texas A&M won the last game 29-26 in overtime back in 2004.
