Texas A&M (6-1) vs. New Mexico State (2-5) Game Preview


Date: Saturday, Oct. 29
Game Time: 7:30 pm
Venue: Kyle Field, College Station, TX
Network: ESPNU

Texas A&M gets a relative off-week after getting run over and beaten up by Alabama last week. But now it’s time to make the case.

There’s no time to sit back and relax. The Aggies are still deep into this whole College Football Playoff argument thing if they can win out and look fantastic doing it.

If Alabama really is the be-all-end-all No. 1 team in the country, then hanging with the Crimson Tide into the second half – even if the final was 33-14 – should be a positive if they can beat Mississippi State, Ole Miss, UTSA and LSU decisively. And it all has to start with a layup against New Mexico State.

The Sun Belt Aggies have been entertaining, and they’ve been competitive despite the 2-5 record. They might not have much of a defense, but they can throw just well enough annoy A&M by keeping the pressure on the secondary for a while.

But Texas A&M should be able to keep this simple and pound away without a problem, coming up with over 300 rushing yards, and take it relatively easy.

The NMSU run defense isn’t getting totally destroyed on the ground, but it’s about to. Expect lots of A&M home runs on the way to a big first quarter to quickly get over the Bama loss.
