Can you believe it’s Week 9 in college football? I feel like it was just yesterday that I was headed down to New Orleans to watch the Dawgs in the Superdome. Time flies when you’re having... I’m just not sure if I can call this season fun.

The Mississippi St. Bulldogs head over to College Station, Texas, this Saturday to face the Texas A&M Aggies. Traveling to Texas A&M is always a difficult task, no matter who you are.

Texas A&M is coming off a close win (24-17) over the Ole Miss Rebels. This win was not the most attractive win from the Aggies this season. Kellen Mond did not look his best against the sub-par Rebel defense. Granted, it’s always hard to perform at your best on the road in the Southeastern Conference.

The Aggies opened up as an 11.5 point favorite, but the line has gone down to a 10 point favorite over the Bulldogs. If the Bulldogs play with the intensity that they did in the first half of the LSU game, I believe they cover every bit of 10 points. The Kyle Field crowd makes you think A&M will cover the 10 points, but it is an 11 a.m. ball game, which is always challenging to get up for.
