Texas A&M 38 Arkansas 42 Final


The No. 13 Texas A&M Aggies take on the No. 18 Arkansas Razorbacks in Arlington at Cowboys Stadium. Both teams enter the game after a loss last week. The Aggies lost a close one to Oklahoma State 30-29 while the Razorbacks dropped a 38-14 decision to Alabama. 

This is a must-win game for each squad if they want to remain in contention for a BCS bowl game. Both teams are likely to end the season ranked in the top 20 so a win would look great on a bowl resume. 

A&M and Arkansas both enter the game with dinged-up squads. Arkansas lost starting defensive end Tenarius Wright for four to six weeks due to a broken arm suffered against Alabama. A&M starting DE Jonathan Mathis injured his leg against OSU and will be out for the rest of the season.

The Aggies leading WR Ryan Swope is questionable for the game after suffering a concussion on an illegal hit against OSU. Arkansas RB Broderick Green is questionable after suiting up but not playing against Alabama.

These two teams match up pretty evenly. Whoever can limit turnovers and play the best on special teams will likely win the game.
