For the first time in 36 seasons and just the third time ever, two Top 10 teams will face off at Kyle Field when the No. 8 Texas A&M hosts No. 6 Oklahoma State at 2.30 p.m. on Saturday. It will be the first Top 10 matchup at Kyle Field since 1975 when the No. 2 Aggies clinched a share of the Southwest Conference title with a 20-10 victory over No. 5 Texas.
The matchup holds monumental implications for both squads as it represents each team's conference opener. The winner of this game will likely fight against No. 1 Oklahoma for the title of 2011 Big 12 Champion.
Both squads enter Saturday sitting at 2-0 and leaving an impressive wake of destruction in their paths. Oklahoma State boasts the nation's No. 1 passing offense, and the Aggies are one of only three teams to rank in the Top 20 nationally in scoring offense and scoring defense.
This looks sure to be a hard-fought, high-scoring struggle that could very well come down to the final play, much like last year's 38-35 OSU victory. Here are five bold predictions for when Texas A&M takes on Oklahoma State Saturday afternoon.
