Texas A&M had a rough start to their SEC campaign, losing 20-17 to the Florida Gators in their first game of the season after their original opener got postponed. They will be facing slightly easier competition in game two of their campaign as they travel to Dallas to take on SMU.
The Mustangs have had an up and down start to the year. They fell in their first game of the season, on the receiving end of a 59-24 beating from Baylor. They then beat Sam Houston State 52-0, but the Aggies will pose a much larger threat than any FCS school would. Young duel threat quarterback Johnny Manziel will be expected to have another solid day to start of his career with the Aggies. Manziel went 23-30 for 173 yards and added a rushing touchdown in his first game as game manager for Texas A&M.
