Florida vs. Texas A&M: Latest Spread Info, BCS Impact and Predictions

Texas A&M will host the No. 24 Florida Gators this Saturday in what will be the Aggies' first game as members of the SEC.

The Gators are coming off of a shaky win against Bowling Green, one that saw Mike Gillislee finish with 148 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-14 victory.

Meanwhile, what would have been the Aggies' first game of the season was postponed due to Hurricane Isaac, forcing them to wait another week before playing their first SEC game.

Let's take a look at the latest spread information and the impact this matchup will have on the BCS, and of course, predictions.

 

When: Saturday, September 8 at 3:30 p.m. ET

Where: Kyle Field in College Station, Texas

Where to Watch: ESPN

 

Spread

Bovada lists Texas A&M as a one-point favorite on its home turf against the No. 24-ranked Florida Gators.

The Aggies originally opened up as 2.5-point favorites, but that number continues to shrink, and I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes a push by kickoff.

BCS Impact

Although the Aggies are favored, Florida needs to come out of Kyle Field with a win if it's going to remain in the Top 25.

It wasn't exactly the performance we were expecting against Bowling Green last Saturday, and if the Gators are going to beat Texas A&M, they're going to need Jeff Driskel and Mike Gillislee to take the reins.

An Aggies win would help their chances of cracking the Top 25, but even if they do take Florida down, they'll still be on the outside looking in.

 

Prediction

Florida has the edge coming into this matchup because it already has a game under its belt, while the Aggies have yet to touch the field in a regular-season game in 2012.

Although most of Week 1's win against Bowling Green wasn't pretty, Florida has the confidence entering this game, knowing that it can pull out a win in a tough battle and tack on the yards in the fourth quarter when it matters most.

I think this is going to be a grind-it-out SEC game, and I like Florida to take this one.

Texas A&M may have some rust to shake off in its first SEC game, while Florida will build upon what it did at the end of last week's contest.
