The Texas A&M Aggies will be going for their second consecutive win when they take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs in SEC action on Saturday afternoon.
Bulldogs Going For Fourth Consecutive Win Over AggiesThe Bulldogs haven’t played well over the last month and have lost four of their last five games. Despite their recent play, they will head into this game with a lot of confidence because they have won their last three games against the Aggies.
Mississippi State has done a good job running the ball and is averaging 179.1 rushing yards per game, which is 51st in the country. Kylin Hill leads the Bulldogs’ ground game with 643 yards and five touchdowns. The team hasn’t been as successful throwing the ball and is averaging 191.9 passing yards per game, which is 106th in the country.
Defensively, the Bulldogs have struggled against the pass and are giving up 244.4 passing yards per game. They were unable to get pressure on Joe Burrow, who finished the game with 327 passing yards and four touchdowns as LSU easily dispatched of the Bulldogs 36-13.
If the Bulldogs want to pick up their fourth consecutive win over the Aggies, they will need to do a better job defending the pass and force the quarterback to make a few mistakes.
Aggies Going For Third Win In Four GamesThe Aggies were able to bounce back from their loss to Alabama with a win over Ole Miss in their last game and will try to build on the win by defeating the Bulldogs on Saturday, which will give them their third win in their last four games.
Texas A&M has a well-rounded offense that can beat opponents through the air and on the ground, which has made them difficult to defend against. The team is averaging 136.7 rushing yards per game and 271.4 passing yards per game.
In their last game, the Rebels managed to get pressure on quarterback Kellen Mond, who completed 16 of 28 passes for 172 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. However, the Aggies were able to move the ball on the ground and finished with 165 yards and one touchdown on 38 carries.
Defensively, the Aggies are giving up 21.9 points per game. Even though they gave up 250 yards and two touchdowns on the ground against the Rebels, they were able to keep them out of the end zone and held the team to 17 points. They will need to do a better job against the run if they want to get past the Bulldogs on Saturday.
