#17 Texas A&M Aggies at Texas Longhorns

Thursday November 25, 2010 8:00 PM EST

Line: Texas A&M -3.5

Texas A&M has been on a huge roll coming into their final game of the season. They have won 5 straight, 2 of which came on the road. The Longhorns finally snapped a 4 game losing streak last week. They beat Florida Atlantic 51-17. This is the final game for the Longhorns as well and they want to send their home fans out with a win.

Stats to consider:

Texas A&M Aggies:

  • The Aggies are 8-3 with a 5-2 Big 12 record.
  • They are 2-1 on the road.
  • Points against per game: 20.6 (31st)
  • Points for per game: 32.5 (32nd)
  • Passing yards a game: 295.7 (11th)
  • Rushing yards a game: 159.3 (53rd)

Texas Longhorns:

  • Texas is 5-6 with a 2-5 Big 12 record.
  • They are 3-5 at home.
  • Points against per game: 23.6 (50th)
  • Points for per game: 24.4 (85th)
  • Passing yards a game: 233.2 (51st)
  • Rushing yards a game: 151.5 (65th)

What to watch for:

  • Aggies Junior QB Ryan Tannehill has played well since becoming the starter as the team is 5-0 with him as a starter. He has thrown for 1,306 yards 10 TDs and 3 Ints. He has not thrown an Int the last 2 weeks. His main target has been Junior WR Jeff Fuller who has 959 yards and 11 TDs.
  • On the ground for the Aggies, Junior RB Cyrus Gray has 810 yards and 10 TDs. He also has 238 receiving yards and another TD. The last A&M road game Gray ran for 137 yards and 4 TDs. Last week he ran for 137 yards and 0 TDs. Expect Gray to be all over the place.
  • If the Longhorns hope to keep this one close, they are going to need a good game from Sophomore QB Garret Gilbert. Gilbert has thrown for 2,525 yards 9 TDs and 15 Ints. During the Texas 4 game losing streak Garret threw a total of 10 Ints.

All football picks come down to whoever turns the ball over less. I really like what Texas A&M has done as of late, beating some very good teams in Oklahoma, Baylor, and Nebraska. This has not been a good year for Texas and they will be looking to win 1 more game for their home crowd. I can’t see it happen as the Aggies are a very talented football team on offense and defense.
