After dropping conference foe Vanderbilt last week 56-24 at Kyle Field, Texas A&M will close out its non-conference schedule with in-state opponent University of Texas-El Paso in a home battle. The Aggies hope to continue their winning traditions after falling to Auburn two weeks ago in an upset, especially with three SEC matchups against Mississippi State, LSU and Missouri to close the season.
Starting UTEP quarterback Jameill Showers will be welcomed back to Kyle Field after transferring from A&M last spring, but a shoulder injury suffered last week against Rice will sideline him for the game. Meanwhile, reigning Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel looks to continue working through the throwing shoulder injury he sustained against Auburn.
