Texas A&M Vs. Florida: Aggies Run Defense Could Be Key

Do you like cold, hard numbers and statistics behind your SEC pre-game coverage? New Texas A&M SB Nation blog Good Bull Hunting has you covered.

The Aggies begin the SEC era Saturday when they open their season against No. 23 Florida. Using an algorithm of his own making (and one he goes in detail to explain), SpreadsheetAG takes a look at how the Aggies stack up against the Gators based on 2011 statistics and a multitude of other factors.

Texas A&M's run defense was particularly stingy in 2011, which could bode well for the Aggies against new Florida starting running back Mike Gillislee. The Aggies allowed only 101 yards rushing per game last season. The Gators' defense looked uncharacteristically bad against Bowling Green in last weekend's victory, which might be good news to an Aggies passing attack that looks to be more up-tempo under new coach Kevin Sumlin.
