The point total calls are a wee bit easier than the against the spread predictions to start the season. The teams are all going to be a bit spotty and flaky early on, but it’s sometimes easier to see when the big shootout is coming or if it’s going to be a slopfest.

3. Texas State at Texas A&M

OVER/UNDER PICK: Over

Can the fired up team with the improved offense take care of most of a point total by itself? In this case, yes.

There’s a bit of a concern about a Texas State defense that wasn’t all that bad last season, gets back everyone in the secondary, and returns ten of the top 12 tacklers.

This is going to be a very good and very sound Bobcat defense, and it’s not going to matter all that much after A&M gets on a roll early on.

TXST just doesn’t have the bulk on either side.

This might take a while to get rolling, though.

Assuming the Texas A&M defense will take it easy in the second half – and assuming a slew of key parts are going to come out and rest up for Clemson –  Texas State should be just good enough to come up with ten points. That might have been like pulling teeth out of last year’s offense, but this season under a new coaching staff, the O will come up with a few positives.

Get ten out of the Sun Belter, and all your asking for out of Texas A&M is 47 points. Under Jimbo Fisher last season, the Aggie O hit that four times, and seven of the 13 games went over 56.5 points.
