OUR PREDICTION: This is a tough spot for Texas A&M. The Aggies are coming off a big 45-24 win over Arkansas at AT&T Stadium last Saturday and have Tennessee and Alabama coming up following this game at South Carolina. This is a lot of points to lay in a potential letdown spot for A&M. The Aggies will win, but the Gamecocks keep the score within the 17.5 points.
