We got back in the winners’ column last week, going 6-4 (42-49 YTD), and face the toughest of all weekends…rivalries abound.
This is never an easy week as emotions run high for a lot of these teams, making this their make-or-break game of the season when we throw most of the stats out the window.
So, we’ll do our best and as always, here are the picks…
No. 3 Texas at Texas A&M (+21)—The Longhorns simply need to keep their eyes on the prize and not get tripped up against the Aggies this weekend. Texas’ Colt McCoy became the winningest QB in NCAA history last weekend but is only 1-2 against A&M, losing in 2006 and 2007. While the ‘Horns second-ranked offense has put up a ton of points, the Aggies have managed to put up over 33 points a game which is good for 17th in FBS. Unfortunately, their defense punches in at 99th place, which will be their downfall. Texas 42, Texas A&M 20.
