I am not tho only one who sees this as a very bad matchup for us or a probable loss as you can see by the other posters in this thread. Why single me out?

I predict, though, that we won’t. We get brought back down to earth a bit. Head into the bye week frustrated and confused.

When was the last time Muschamp sold out to stop the run sure as shit wasnt this season.

Mizzoo spent 2 weeks to get the win over us and did not. tamu doesnt have that long.

I disagree here. Dooley was a bad matchup because he enjoyed playing with pace. Fisher runs it slow, I think we can hold our own on defense. It's not an easy match up but we can hold our own.

TAM is fairly good at running the ball, and good at stopping the run. I believe they will beat USC.

If we hold them to under 300 yards rushing then we only lose by 17

Our run defense is very hard to read. At times we look absolutely terrible. But at times we come out and dominate. We usually get a little bit of both every game.

I would hope that if we get Wonnum back, we can have just enough size on the line to be a bit more consistent

Our defense has to play better if we are gonna win this one. I'm leaning toward a loss, but who knows, get a few turnovers and we could win it.

They were not impressive against a mediocre UK defense last night

Their D looked good against a putrid UK offense.

UK sucks so aTm barely beating them doesn’t tell me much.

Remember that home field is +3.5 over neutral site or -3.5 if away, so essentially a 7 point swing.

This will no doubt be a tough game for us (mainly due to all of the injuries IMO), but don't think it is automatically a 14+ point loss.
This is an interesting article if you're into betting spreads. Ours is 2.5 we are 45% against the spread at home since 2015 when it was written. Vegas books give 2.5 and bettors over value homefield

I'll never feel comfortable about an A&M game until we beat them. We certainly can, but like UK they have been a thorn in our side. I can see it going either way.

Mizzou Had us coming off a bye week and we beat them with our backup guy. It will be a very interesting game. I wish it were a night game though. I think it will be closer than most think but we'll still take a hard fought L. I thought we had no chance against Mizzou too, so.
