HOW TO WATCH
Time: 6:30 p.m. CT
TV: SEC Network
Line: Texas A&M -13.5
Both teams had a bye week last week.
Perhaps the most surprising team in the SEC so far this season, the Arkansas Razorbacks face a big test Saturday when they head to Kyle Field. Arkansas heads into this game looking like one of the best defenses in the nation under Barry Odom, at least from a turnover standpoint. Arkansas has a national-best 10 interceptions on the season, six of which came in one game against Matt Corral. The defense also kept Auburn in check the week prior, and grounded Mike Leach’s air raid offense before that. Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond has done a good job protecting the ball and not throwing interceptions throughout his career, but if he gets reckless against the Razorbacks, Arkansas will make him pay.
It finally seems like A&M has turned the corner and gotten what they were supposed to get under head coach Jimbo Fisher. They’ve been ranked in the top 10 of the AP Poll for two straight weeks now, and with the Alabama game out of their way, the Aggies suddenly have a very favorable schedule going forward, not facing another ranked team as of right now. Could this be the year where we discuss Texas A&M as one of the four College Football Playoff teams?
