Texas A&M A Great UNDER Play Closing Out Last Season

The once high-scoring Texas A&M offense was anything but closing out last season, which led to the UNDER hitting in the Aggies' final five games. A&M averaged just 20.8 points per game during their final five games of last season compared to 32.1 through their first eight outings. The Aggies open their 2016 slate when they host the UCLA Bruins Saturday.

SHARK BITES
  • UCLA is 10-2 SU and 9-3 ATS in their past 12 season openers.
  • Texas A&M is 0-3 SU and ATS in their past three games as a favorite of 2.5 or less.
  • Josh Rosen posted a QBR higher than 100.0 in all but one start last season.

There will be plenty of pressure on new offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone – who was UCLA’s OC for the past three seasons - and quarterback Trevor Knight to reinvigorate the passing game this season. Knight has plenty of athleticism but proved to be inconsistent during his time with Oklahoma.

UCLA is the Josh Rosen show. Rosen flashed brilliance during his freshman season, but will need to make some big steps forward in order to make the Bruins a legitimate threat. UCLA watched their top two receivers and their starting running back go to the NFL this offseason, so Rosen will need to carry some younger talent along.
