Texas A&M vs Mississippi State Game Preview

Why Texas A&M Will Win

It certainly isn’t pretty, but it’s working.

Is A&M getting good quarterback play? No. Does it have enough offensive weapons? No, and things didn’t get any better after losing star WR Ainais Smith to a leg injury.

But it still works.

It all collapsed against Appalachian State, but the defense held up time and again in the win over Miami, and it held on and survived everything Arkansas was able to do.

There’s no Mississippi State running game to worry about, and the A&M pass defense is strong enough to hold up. It’ll give up the mid-range plays, but it’ll make the tackle.

The Aggie D has been able to keep the game low scoring and in range against the Bulldogs over the last two years, but …

NFL Expert Picks, Week 4

Why Mississippi State Will Win

The Texas A&M offense really, really isn’t working.

It’s good at scoring when it gets the chance, but it’s not getting enough out of the running game, and worst of all for the team that’s last in the SEC in total O, it’s not controlling the clock.

Mississippi State isn’t controlling the time of possession like it normally does, but Texas A&M really isn’t doing much to hold on to the ball. If you can’t keep the chains moving, the Mike Leach offense will be happy to keep its offense on the field for 40 minutes.

– Schedules, Previews CollegeNFL

What’s Going To Happen

How did LSU pull off the win over the Bulldogs? It rallied in the fourth quarter with 21 points on a great finish from Jayden Daniels, and it held the ball for close to 33 minutes.

LSU stopped the Mississippi State offense on third downs. Texas A&M can do that. LSU then used those stops late – and was helped by a fumble recovery – to pull it off. A&M might be able to come up with the takeaways, too.

The offense, though, won’t be able to do enough to overcome a strong day from the D.

It won’t be pretty, but the Mississippi State defense will rise up on two late A&M drives.

Arkansas vs Texas A&M Game Preview

Why Texas A&M Will Win

Max Johnson was fine.

Texas A&M won’t be anything pretty this season. It’s going to grind, it’s going to rely on its defense, and it’s going to find ways to win.

Haynes King was unfairly blamed for not getting the O going in the weird loss to Appalachian State, but something had to be changed.

Johnson was hardly razor-sharp in the win over Miami, but the offense was a wee bit better on third downs, the ground game was okay, and …

Yeah, the offense has problems. Fortunately, the defense has been fantastic.

The D has been a rock against the pass over the first three games, overall it’s allowing just over 300 yards per game, and it’s got the line to hold up against the Arkansas running game that needs to dominate to win.

The Hog defense has been lit up so far through the air – everyone has thrown for 325 yards or more against the secondary – but …

CFN Expert Picks, Week 4

Why Arkansas Will Win

Yeah, again, the Texas A&M offense has problems.

Where are the playmakers? Devon Achane has world class wheels, but he’s stuck in mud averaging just 4.3 yards per carry. The receivers need to make big things happen more consistently, the quarterback play hasn’t been good enough, and this whole thing just doesn’t work.

In other words, A&M hasn’t shown it can take advantage of all the issues the Arkansas defense is having.

On the other side, the last thing a struggling offense needs to deal with is a pass rush – Arkansas leads the nation in sacks and is seventh in the country against the run. This isn’t the team the SEC’s last-ranked offense wants to face, and there’s another massive problem …

Week 4 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

Texas A&M isn’t doing anything to control the clock.

This is a deliberate team that needs to make teams play its style. That’s fine as long as the results are there, but A&M is keeping the ball for just over 25 minutes per game. Even so, it should still be 3-0, it beat Miami, and …

Even when Arkansas was lousy it gave A&M a hard time in this matchup – at least it has since the 2012 blowout loss.

It might have the nation’s worst pass defense, but 2022 Arkansas isn’t lousy.

Miami vs Texas A&M Game Preview

Why Miami Will Win

Can Texas A&M score?

It was one of the glossed over aspects to the early high ranking for an Aggie team that everyone expects to be fantastic – does it have the skill guys?

Haynes King is a promising young quarterback, but it’s probably going to be Max Johnson getting the start – it’s not a plus to have a shakeup like this now. There’s talent on offense, and Devon Achane will be in someone’s NFL backfield soon enough, but is the firepower there? More to the point, can A&M’s deliberate style show off whether or not the playmakers really are there?

They sure as shoot weren’t in the 17-14 loss to Appalachian State with just eight first downs from the offense and 180 yards in all.

Miami’s defense isn’t quite there yet, but it showed off the offensive talent in layups against Bethune-Cookman and Southern Miss with 100 points and well over 1,000 yards in the two games.

The O will slow down against the terrific Aggie defense, but if QB Tyler Van Dyke and the passing game can get up early, can A&M crank up any sort of a comeback?

However …

CFN Expert Picks, Week 3

Why Texas A&M Will Win

It’s not that bad quite yet, everyone.

Appalachian State has guys. It doesn’t have a slew of NFL stars, but that’s a veteran team with good lines, great running backs, and the experience across the board to have handled a situation like last Saturday.

No, the A&M offense didn’t come tough, but the other side was more than fine. Remember, that’s an App State team that rolled up and down the field in the wild game against North Carolina, and it managed just 315 yards and was more opportunistic than sensational.

For all of the team’s problems, the offensive line has been good in pass protection so far, the secondary hasn’t allowed much of anything, and there’s too much talent overall to be this mediocre.

Miami has looked strong so far, but even with the easy win over Southern Miss, it hasn’t faced anyone like the Aggies just dealt with.

It’s going to come down to …

Week 3 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

Mistakes. Texas A&M’s four turnovers so far are too many, and Miami has first three takeaways in each of the first two games.

A&M can’t press, and it can’t try to erase the problems of the weird loss right away. It’s going to have to stay patient, it can’t let Van Dyke get into a groove, and it will have to rely on a run defense that won’t allow much of anything.

Don’t lose the turnover battle, own field position, and pound, pound, pound. The O line might be okay so far at keeping Johnson from getting popped – assuming he really is starting – but the running game has yet to do anything interesting.

That has to change here – it will do just enough to get out with a tough win. The defense will hang on for dear life on the final drive to survive.

Texas A&M vs Appalachian State Game Preview

Why Appalachian State Will Win

Did Appalachian State just score again?

The Mountaineers gave North Carolina a fun time scoring 40 points in the fourth quarter … and losing. It was one of the wildest games in a long, long time in the 63-61 loss, but the offense cranked up 659 yards, everything clicked – especially late – and it wasn’t that crazy for an attack with these running backs.

They have the depth in the backfield, Chase Brice – who threw for 361 yards and six scores – is a veteran passer, and Texas A&M’s defense is about to get tested hard.

The passes will be spread around, the ground attack will work inside and out behind a dangerous line, and …

CFN Expert Picks, Week 2

Why Texas A&M Will Win

The A&M lines are a wee bit different than what Appalachian State saw against North Carolina.

The Aggies came up with an efficient 31-0 win over Sam Houston to start the campaign, starting with a defense that held the high-octane attack to fewer than 200 yards and coming up big on third down after third down.

The defensive front was great at getting into the backfield and stuffing everything before it could get going. The Aggies have the tacklers that North Carolina doesn’t, and they’re going to make Brice try to win this.

Appalachian State needs to run well to set up everything, or else …

Week 2 Schedule, Predictions, Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

Texas A&M will never give up the ball.

Appalachian State isn’t going to hit the explosive plays it came up with against North Carolina as it tries grinding it out a bit more than it might like. It’s able to control the clock at times, but it’s going to press a bit with A&M having the offensive on the field for long stretches of time.

The deliberate style of A&M will take over the game in the third quarter as QB Haynes King has a sharp performance on third downs and the defense takes care of the rest.

Texas A&M vs Sam Houston Game Preview

Why Sam Houston Will Win

This is a high-powered Sam Houston team that went 11-1 last year with a great offense that averaged 41 points per game, one of the FCS’s best defense – especially against the run – and with enough good players returning to fit the systems.

Texas A&M has the talent, but can it all come together right away? It needs to hold up against the great Bearkat receivers – Ife Adeyi and Cody Chrest are dangerous –  and a passing attack that’s going to keep on pressing.

The Sam Houston offense can beat Texas A&M at its own game and control the tempo and the clock, it can also be explosive, and …

Week 1 CFN College Football Expert Picks

Why Texas A&M Will Win

The Texas A&M secondary might be one of the early strengths, at least when it comes to experience combined with an infusion of talent.

The Aggie defense doesn’t have a slew of national-known stars yet – that’s coming with this latest recruiting class – but it should be able to generate enough third down stops to keep the Sam Houston State offense from getting into a groove.

Yes, there are enough Bearkats back to make a push, but they have to replace QB Eric Schmid and RB Ramon Jefferson – two of the key stars from last year.

This isn’t the defense you want to go against when you’re breaking in new skill parts.

Week 1 Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews, Saturday

What’s Going To Happen

The Aggies can’t get just off the bus and think it can run a light scrimmage against this Sam Houston team.

It’ll be a wee bit of a fight for a while. The Bearkats will get the offense going well enough – and the defensive front will hold up fine against the Aggie running game – to keep this interesting.

However, new starting QB Haynes King and the A&M passing game will keep the chains moving in the second half as the team finally starts to pull away.

2022 Preseason CFN SEC Offensive Player of the Year

QB Bryce Young, Jr. Alabama

Yeah, of course the reigning Heisman winner who came really, really close to pulling out a national championship comes into the following season as the conference’s top offensive star. However, that’s not the given you might think it is considering just about ever SEC team has a quarterback talented enough to be a problem on any given Saturday.

The transfer portal brought LSU Jayden Daniels from Arizona State. Ole Miss got Jaxson Dart from USC and South Carolina got a gem in Spencer Rattler from Oklahoma. Kentucky’s Will Levis and Florida’s Anthony Richardson have the pro scouts drooling, KJ Jefferson of Arkansas is special, and Mississippi State’s Will Rogers might lead the SEC in passing.

Meanwhile, a few of those big names are in battles for the starting job, and the one guy not mentioned – Stetson Bennett – quarterbacked his team to the national title.

The SEC is loaded with passers who could start just about anywhere else outside of the conference, and Young is the best of the bunch. He might not be huge, he might not have a cannon, and he doesn’t run much, but he reads everything, is deadly accurate, and he’s about to make a big push to repeat as the Heisman winner after hitting 67% of his passes for 4,872 yards and 37 touchdowns with seven picks.

2022 Preseason CFN SEC Defensive Player of the Year

LB Will Anderson, Jr. Alabama

It wasn’t just that Anderson was a pass rushing terror on a defense loaded with NFL prospect, it’s that he didn’t stop until Georgia held him in relative check in the national title – and the rest of the D took advantage of the attention paid to 31 – it was the consistency and alpha defender aspect to his game. Be shocked if the production doesn’t keep on rolling.

He came up with two or more tackles for loss in 11 games, made 101 stops on the season with 17.5 sacks and 33.5 tackles for loss. No one else had more than 22 tackles for loss – he was the only player to average over two per game – and only Army’s Andre Carter averaged more sacks per game – 1.19 to 1.17.
