  • There are plenty of questions to be asked in College Sportsbook entering the season, but Texas A&M has proven time and time again that it opens the season strong. The Aggies have gone 7-1 SU in their past eight Week 1 games, including a narrow 31-24 overtime victory over UCLA last season. Texas A&M and UCLA will open their seasons against each other again in 2017 but this time it will be at the Rose Bowl.

    Shark Bites
    • UCLA is 0-5 ATS in its last 5 games against the SEC.
    • The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Texas A&M’s last 7 games on the road.
    • Josh Rosen tied a career high with 3 interceptions against Texas A&M last season.

    Can Kevin Sumlin stop Texas A&M from collapsing late in the season? That is really the big question. Having a stud wide receiver in Christian Kirk helps, but the offense needs to replace both starting tackles and figure out who is playing under center. The defense, consistently terrible against the run, lost Myles Garrett to the NFL and replacing him will be next to impossible.

    Injuries decimated UCLA last season, causing the team to bottom out. An injury to quarterback Josh Rosen doomed the season and his health in 2017 will be of the utmost importance. Even if Rosen is 100 percent healthy, the Bruins need to develop some semblance of a running game or the QB will be getting hit a lot.
