Texas A&M Aggies

Texas A&M sophomore QB Kellen Mond completed 18-of-29 passes for 226 yards and two touchdowns with one interception in Saturday's 20-14 overtime win over Kentucky. Texas A&M and Kentucky went into overtime at 14-14. Kentucky missed the opening field goal and Williams ran a couple times before finding the end zone for the win. Mond (6'2/210) wasn't overly sharp -- his 46 yard touchdown came on a tipped pass that Sternberger took to the house -- but it was still enough to get the win over a quality Kentucky team. The sophomore will carry a mediocre 9/5 TD/INT ratio into next week's game against South Carolina.

South Carolina Gamecocks

South Carolina junior QB Jake Bentley (knee) expects to start Saturday against Texas A&M. Bentley told reporters Tuesday that he's experiencing no lingering effects from the Grade 1 MCL sprain he suffered against Kentucky. Bentley was full-go at Tuesday’s practice, though he does expect to wear a knee brace if he plays on Saturday. "As long as I’m ready to go, that’s the plan," Bentley said. "And Mike’s going to be ready to go." Bentley is referring to his backup, Michael Scarnecchia. HC Will Muschamp has said that Bentley will start if he's healthy.
