The South Carolina State Bulldogs are looking to rebound from two straight losses, but the Texas A&M Aggies have no interest in being the team to help the Bulldogs turn it around when the teams meet on Saturday.
Still, as The Times and Democrat reports, Aggies players aren't overlooking their MEAC conference opponents this weekend:
"They got beat pretty badly last week," linebacker Jonathan Stewart said during a Wednesday teleconference. "They're a team on the rebound. Just because they are from a smaller conference, not a marquee conference, we can't take them lightly. We only have 12 guaranteed opportunities and we've already played two of them. We have to prepare for every single opponent as if they are a big-time opponent."
The Aggies know what it's like to have extra motivation coming off a loss, as they handled SMU a week after losing to Florida.
Saturday's game is set for a 6 p.m. CT kickoff.
