Although it wasn't originally supposed to be, Saturday's game against the Florida Gators will be the first of the season for the Texas A&M Aggies. After the threat of Hurricane Isaac postponed their opener against Louisiana Tech to Oct. 13, the Aggies will instead start of their season with a conference game in their first ever appearance as a member of the SEC.
The Gators struggled in their first game of the season, limping to a 27-14 victory in a game that was tied as late as the third quarter. The struggling offense without a defined starter completed 13-of-21 combined passes between Jeff Driskel and Jacoby Brissett for 145 yards passing.
Had it not been for 148 yards rushing and two touchdowns from Mike Gillislee on 24 carries, the damage could've been worse for the Gators that fell out of the rankings. Following the struggles in their opener, Florida enters their matchup against Texas A&M as underdogs, although the line is very close.
Game Time: 2:30 p.m. CT at Kyle Field in College Station, TX
TV Schedule: ESPN
Odds: Texas A&M favored by 1.5 points
