Though Texas A&M’s offense generally gets the headlines, it has been the defense that has been the strength of the team since the middle of last season. Since November 7, 2015 – a span that includes eight games – the Aggies have allowed just 16.1 points per game. This has made the UNDER a profitable play when Texas A&M takes the field, as the total has gone 0-7-1 in the Aggies’ past eight.
A&M will be facing off against a confident Arkansas Razorbacks squad at AT&T Stadium in Arlington this Saturday. After knocking off then-ranked TCU in Week 2, Arkansas steamrolled Texas State 42-3 last week. Quarterback Austin Allen has been especially good, as he has thrown for 464 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions in the past two games.
The Aggies have looked incredibly well-rounded, as they rank in the top 25 in passing yards, rushing yards, points scored and points allowed.
