The Texas A&M Aggies were able to outlast the South Carolina Gamecocks on the road as they were able to score 10 points in the 4th and win 26-23.
The Mississippi State Bulldogs were blindsided by the LSU Tigers and played a sloppy game in which they lost 3-19.
Mississippi State opened as 3 point favorites, while the line has slightly dropped to 2.5 points with about 66% of the public backing Texas A&M.
The total opened up at 45.5 points and has remained stagnant.
Texas A&M Aggies
Texas A&M’s offense didn’t have a problem moving the ball on South Carolina accumulating 458 yards, 353 yards of which came through the air.
They did struggle on third downs though where they were only able to convert 3 of their 13 attempts.
QB Kellen Mond was solid as he completed 25 of 37 pass attempts for 353 yards and 1 touchdown.
Leading the rushing attack was RB Trayveon Williams who rushed for 78 yards and 1 touchdown on 19 carries.
WRs Jace Sternberger and Quartney Davis had monster games as they combined for 272 yards and 1 touchdown on 16 receptions.
On the defensive side Texas A&M gave up 299 yards and 19 first downs, but they were able to hold South Carolina to just 2 third down conversions in 9 tries.
They were also able to force 2 turnovers, 1 sack, and 2 tackles for a loss.
Mississippi State Aggies
Mississippi State’s offense couldn’t get much going against LSU as they could only total 260 yards while only accumulating 15 first downs and going just 2 of 14 on third downs.
QB Nick Fitzgerald was horrendous completing just 8 of 24 passes for 59 yards and 4 interceptions.
He was able to make it up on the ground where he totaled 131 yards on 23 carries.
Through the air it was dreadful as their leading receiver was WR Deddrick Thomas who hauled in one catch for 15 yards.
The defense did all they could to keep Mississippi State in this game as they only surrendered 239 yards, while holding LSU to just 7 of 18 on third downs.
They were also able to contribute 1 turnover, 2 sacks, and 5 tackles for a loss.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Pick
Texas A&M handles their business on the road in Mississippi State.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Texas A&M +2.5
Texas A&M has been money recently going 7-1 ATS, while going 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road contests.
Mississippi State will be sporting a top-five defense in this contest and the 2nd ranked defense when they play at home, while Texas A&M owns the 65th ranked offense on the road.
I do like Mississippi State in this spot, but Nick Fitzgerald has been in terrible form recently as he owns a 56.0 QBR rating in his last three contests.
Take the points and back the road dogs, while also backing the total to stay under the 45.5 point threshold.
