My Prediction: Both teams are coming into this season with high expectations. Obviously, Texas A&M’s aspirations are higher, but SMU is looking to impress the Big 12 as they lobby to get into one of the premier conferences in the country. Each squad has the bulk of their starters back from last year. I like the Aggies to be in the hunt for a National Championship this year and I think their defense will be too much for SMU to handle. Aggies win by 3 touchdowns.
Texas A&M -15.5
