Both of these teams are coming off of wins in week 7.
The Aggies opened up as 17.5 point favorites and that number now sits at 19.5. The total has stayed right around 45 points.
South Carolina Gamecocks
South Carolina was not a team that many people had their eyes on this year. Although not great, they do seem to be playing a bit better than last year.
The Gamecocks won a close game last Saturday against the Vanderbilt Commodores by a score of 21-20. It really should not have been that close of a game, but they will take any win they can get.
Quarterback Zeb Noland did not start the game last week, but he came in and led his team to a victory. He went 5/8 for 75 yards and 1 touchdown.
Receiver Jaheim Bell had a good day in the win against Vandy. He had 6 receptions for 136 yards. I am sure he will get targeted a lot in this game with the Aggies.
The defense for this team has been up and down so far this year. The unit had trouble at times, but for the most part, they did their job against Vanderbilt.
Texas A&M Aggies
The #17 team in the nation has had a good year so far. They did lose a game they should not have, but they also beat one of the best teams in the country. I like the way they are playing now.
Last week, this team covered as favorites against Missouri as they beat the Tigers 35-14. They did what they had to do against a team that is not that great.
Zach Calzada went 13/25 for 148 yards and 2 touchdowns in the win. Consistency has been an issue for the young quarterback so far, but he has improved as the year has gone on.
Running back Isaiah Spiller had a big day against the Tigers. He ran the ball 20 times for 168 yards. I am sure he will get used a lot on Saturday against the Gamecocks.
The defense has been very good for them this year. They have been able to generate a lot of pressure on the opposing quarterbacks. I look for this unit to play very well against South Carolina.

Free Week 8 NCAA Football Pick
I definitely expect to see some scoring take place in this one.
I like the total to go over 45.
4* Free Week 8 NCAA Betting Pick:
45 is not a very high number for college football and I think there will be some offense in this game with most of it coming from the Aggies.
Even though the South Carolina defense has been better, it still is not great. I do not have much confidence in them slowing down the Aggies.
Even though the offense of Texas A&M is not the most explosive, they are still decent. I look for Isaiah Spiller to have a big game and for Calzada to be good enough out there. Between the two teams, I can see this thing going over.
Give me the over here.
