Florida Vs. Texas A&M Preview: A Search for Answers About the Aggies

Still a bit of a mystery right now.

Florida Gators vs. Texas A&M Aggies, 3:30 p.m. ET, ESPN

There was always going to be some guesswork for Florida in this game, with the Aggies playing their first game in the SEC and bringing in a completely different head coach and offensive philosophy to boot. But when a hurricane washed away Texas A&M's first game of the 2012 season, Florida is left with even less information to go on.

What Florida knows about itself is not exactly cause for great confidence. The 27-14 win against Bowling Green was even less inspiring than it looked, and raised grave questions about just how far Will Muschamp's rebuilding job progressed over the offseason. Texas A&M might be coming off a disappointing season and undertaking a reconstruction effort of its own, but the Aggies are not Bowling Green.

And they have a little bit of added motivation for this one. Of the two teams added to the SEC in the expansion boomlet, A&M was the one that most clearly and openly wanted into the conference. The Aggies will begin to clarify their enigma so far this season, and leave Florida with more questions in the process.
