Texas A$M and OV for the large!!!!!

Dr, that was my only caveat with this game, then I realized that the rushing stat for Texas AM is skewed.  They're opponents have been playing from behind OR making a second half comeback all year long.

Big rivalry game, I think it's going to be a defensive battle

Texas +8

Being from DTexas I keep up with both of these teams.  Texas QB's are very young and inexperienced.  They have been without their best receiver and have struggled to put up points since then.  A&M has lost their most prolific offensive threat also for this week.  I don't believe there will be a lot of points put up in this game.  While there is no sure thing as a "lock" or "sure bet" like some of these morons post on here espicially in a rivalry game, i think under is the best bet here.

that is so true and even if gray plays today he won't be 100% but with this being the last rival game for a few years i see it being explosive...   thanks for the imput being an agfan, its hard to set aside feeling...

If you're betting the over, you need to ask yourself one thing...WILL TEXAS SCORE 24+ POINTS?   If your answer is no, take the under.  A&M has a strong offense, but in this game their balance will be much less effective.  Which is what has given teams problems.  And trust me, this Texas defense is for real and now on the same page.  They have become a serious force on defense.  Remember, they have a new D coordinator and handful of new starters at key positions on defense.  But now the defense is playing full tilt and comfortable with the calls and players.  MY point is A&M  WILL NOT BREAK 30 POINTS.  They may win 30-10, they may lose 24-23.  But they won't break 30.  Bank it.  So betting the total you really need to ask yourself if you think Texas will score 24+.   The under is a really solid pick in this game...I know these teams, players, and this series very well.   Also, A&M looks poised to win and is a huge public favorite.  This game is 50/50...trust me.  Go with tease...Texas +14 and UNDER.  SOLID WINNER!

Man this game features one of the worst offensive football teams in college football and probably the worst starting quarterback in Texas history against an absolutely inept defensive football team who gets gashed for 20+ yard plays regularly...if Texas figures out that ATM's defensive is wide open across the middle and on bubble screens then I could see this game being close.  I don't see that happening since they haven't done it all year and they have been fine running dumbass triple reverse flea flickers and statue of liberty plays that worked 12 years ago....

ATM -8

Lock of the week.....A&M -8.5. I know Texas has a good D, but A&M has a great offensive.
