College Football Week 1 Picks: SMU Will Shock Distracted Texas A&M
No. 8 Texas A&M has a chance to win the National Championship this year. They have talent on both sides of the ball that has screams contender and if they are able to wipe out their Big-12 competition, the Aggies could find themselves in the title picture.
All of that will go away after their first game, where the Aggies will fall victim to a massive upset at the hands of grossly underrated SMU.
Texas A&M is being bombarded with questions about a potential Big-12 exit. Their minds are elsewhere, as are their fans. The most important thing Texas A&M football right now is not their first game, which sets the stage for a shocking defeat.
SMU is no slouch either. If Texas A&M thinks they are going to walk away with this game uncontested they have another thing coming.
SMU is making huge strides. They've had to literally resurrect their program, which is a daunting task. While they continue to progress, they're still looking for a huge win to really put them on the map again as a force to be reckoned with.
That win can come in Week 1 and they know the opportunity that lies in front of them. The Aggies have everything going for them, but their minds are elsewhere. This is a trap game and it's safe to say that SMU has a real fighting chance.
Making bowl games in back-to-back years is nice, but taking down a top-10 team in their opener would be one of the greatest wins in SMU's tradition-laden history.
While Texas A&M is focused on their uncertain Big-12 future, SMU is focused on an upset.
