Overview:

On Saturday, October 6th, the (5-0) Kentucky Wildcats will be on the road to take on the (3-2) Texas A&M Aggies.

The Crowd:

The Crowd projects a final score of Texas A&M 29.5 – Kentucky 25.8 with an over/under of 55.4.

2018-19 Statistics (130 total teams):

  • Passing offense: Texas A&M 279.6 YPG > Kentucky 153.0 YPG
  • Rushing offense: Kentucky 254.5 YPG > Texas A&M 232.2 YPG
  • Scoring offense: Texas A&M 36.0 PPG > Kentucky 32.4 PPG
  • Scoring defense: Kentucky 12.6 PPG > Texas A&M 21.4 PPG
  • Passing defense: Kentucky 177.4 YPG > Texas A&M 272.4 PPG
  • Rushing defense: Kentucky 110.4 YPG > Texas A&M 163.2 PPG
  • Turnover Margin Per Game: Kentucky -0.2 > Texas A&M -1.0

Bottom Line:

There’s no shame in Texas A&M losing to #1 Alabama and #2 Clemson in what were somewhat competitive games.  The Aggies have a balanced offensive attack that will be vital against a Kentucky defense that has played extremely well.  Kentucky running back Benny Snell Jr. is arguably the best in the nation at his position but the Wildcats do not have much of a passing attack.  I think this will be a low scoring game with each team trying to impose their will in the ground game.  I think Kentucky’s passing deficiencies will finally come back to bite them and keep in mind Kyle Field is an extremely difficult place to play.
