Texas A&M Vs. Northwestern, 2011 Meineke Car Care Bowl Odds: Aggies A 10-Point Favorite

Even though the Texas A&M Aggies are being coached by an interim coach in defensive coordinator Tim DeRuyter who also is juggling two jobs as he is the Fresno St. Bulldogs head coach, Texas A&M is favored by 10 points according to Odds Shark.

Texas A&M has shown all year to have a very good offense with quarterback Ryan Tannehill as well as the running game with Cyrus Gray. The Texas A&M offense is ranked No. 7 nationally while Northwestern's defense is ranked 81st in the country, so that is one reason why Texas A&M is a double-digit favorite.

Another reason Texas A&M is favored is because the this bowl game is taking place in Houston which means that the crowd will be extremely pro-Texas A&M since their campus is only 90 miles away from Reliant Stadium.
