Texas A&M Aggies
Texas A&M sophomore QB Kellen Mond completed 25-of-37 passes for 353 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's 26-23 win over South Carolina. The Aggies had to hold off a comeback effort by the Gamecocks to secure the road win. It was frustrating that the Aggies settled for four field goals after marching down the field multiple times, but Mond (6'2/210) still had a huge passing yardage day. Mond's lone touchdown was a four yard strike to Jace Sternberger, who had a career game. The Aggies are now 5-0 in games not against Alabama and Clemson. They'll return from their bye with a matchup against Mississippi State on October 27th.
Mississippi State Bulldogs
Mississippi State senior QB Nick Fitzgerald completed 8-of-24 passes for 59 yards and four interceptions while rushing for 131 yards on 23 attempts in Saturday's 19-3 loss to LSU. We got the full Nick Fitzgerald Experience on Saturday evening, with the quarterback showing off plenty of good stuff on the ground while proving essentially incapable of doing anything right as a passer. The 6-foot-3, 235-pound has now failed to throw for 100 yards in any of his last three games. He'll try to get over that low, low bar against Texas A&M next weekend.
The over is 5-2 in the Aggies’ last seven games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game.
The under is 6-1 in the Bulldogs’ last seven games after allowing less than 170 yards passing in their previous contest.
The under is 4-0 in the Bulldogs’ last four games as they’ve struggled offensively, especially quarterback Nick Fitzgerald. The under is also 4-1 in the Bulldogs’ last five home games, is 5-0 in their last five games coming off a loss, and is 22-8 in their last 30 games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous game. On the other side, the under is 4-1 in the Aggies’ last five games overall, is 8-3 in their last 11 conference games and is a perfect 7-0 in their last seven games played in October.
