A&M rolls past Texas State
Texas A&M opened its 2019 season by running over Texas State, 41-7. The Aggies were able to cover a lofty 33.5-point spread at home, but did go under the 56.5-point total. A&M has won its last five coming into this weekend’s game.
The Aggies looked sharp in their opener, putting up 478 total yards of offense while holding Texas State to just 219 total yards and eight rushing yards. A&M was able to dominate on the ground as Isaiah Spiller and Jashaun Corbin each put up over 100 yards. Kellen Mond threw for 194 yards and three touchdowns with one interception. Defensively, the Aggies had three sacks and created four turnovers. Myles Jones had two interceptions to lead the way.
Clemson manhandles Georgia Tech
The Clemson football team won its 16th consecutive football game on Thursday when it defeated Georgia Tech at home, 52-14. The Tigers covered the 37-point spread in the win while going over the 60.5-point total.
Clemson didn’t look like it missed a beat from the national title run, as the Tigers put up 632 yards of offense in the win, including 411 rushing yards. The Clemson defense held Tech to just 294 total yards and forced four turnovers while picking up four sacks. Travis Etienne had a dominant performance for Clemson, as he rushed for 205 yards and three touchdowns on just 12 carries. Quarterback Trevor Lawrence threw for 168 yards and a touchdown on just 13 of 23 passing while Tee Higgins caught four passes for 98 yards and a touchdown.
College Football Betting Trends
The Aggies are 6-1 with the over in their last seven against ACC opponents and 7-2 with the over in their last nine non-conference games.
Clemson is 12-4-1 with the under in its last 17 home games and 13-6 with the under in its last 19 against a team with a winning record.
These two had a 28-26 game last season at A&M, with the Tigers getting the nod and A&M covering as a 12-point dog. This time around, I expect more offense. Clemson has all the weapons in the world and A&M isn’t going to be able to do much to slow the Tigers down. Clemson’s defense will likely be able to get stops on A&M, but the Aggies are talented enough to find the endzone a few times along the way. Look for the over to hit as this game will feature a lot of highlights.
