Venue: Kyle Field, College Station, TX

With a painful loss to UCLA and a rocky performance in a 24-14 win over Nicholls, it hasn’t been a strong start for Texas A&M – it needs an easy, massive win.
But for all the pain and angst from the disaster in Pasadena, win this, and go on a run against Arkansas and South Carolina to start the SEC season, and all of a sudden, the narrative might change.
The Aggies get Alabama in College Station – there’s at least a chance to make a whole lot of noise.
Louisiana-Lafayette has been fun. It doesn’t have a defense, but the first two games have been wild and crazy shootouts, beating SE Louisiana 51-48 and losing to Tulsa 66-42.
Get ready for more offensive fireworks from both sides.
One Reason Why Louisiana Will Win
The firepower has been there from the start. The ground game has been stellar, the passing attack explosive, and the points coming in bunches averaging 46.5 points per game.
Throw in one of the nation’s best kick return games, and the Ragin’ Cajuns can hang with just about every team with a mediocre defense.
He’s no Josh Rosen, but Jordan Davis bombed away last week against Tulsa, with Rhyeem Malone and Keenan Barnes each with over 100 yards receiving.

One Reason Why Texas A&M Will Win
To call the Louisiana-Lafayette run defense bad would be an insult to other things that are, too, bad.
SE Louisiana ran at will, and then Tulsa went off with 424 yards and eight scores. Everyone who wanted to run the ball had no problems tearing off yards in chunks.
Texas A&M took its foot off the gas against Nicholls way too early, but the offensive front that owned UCLA for 40 minutes was good enough to do what was absolutely needed to go through the motions against the Colonels.
Kellen Mond threw well, Jake Hubenak was better – completing 12-of-15 passes for 93 yards – and there should be a decent balance.
However A&M wants to score on this defense, it will.
What’s Going To Happen
Texas A&M is about to have a whole lot of fun.
The Louisiana offense will bomb away and should have its moments, but it’ll also throw a few key interceptions to let the Aggies take over.
Expect A&M to have the ball for well over 35 minutes, come up with well over 500 yards of total offense, and have a whole lot of fun as the team looks the part again – at least on one side of the ball.
