The Texas A&M Aggies will face the Mississippi State Bulldogs at the Davis Wade Stadium on Saturday (October 1) in the Southeastern Conference (West division). Both teams are 3-1 for the season before heading into this matchup.
Having a similar start to the season makes this game even more exciting to watch. Texas started its season with a thrashing win (31-0) over the Sam Houston State Bearkats. Then came the loss (15-17), a close one, against Appalachian State. The team came right on track in Game 3, winning (17-9) against Miami FL. Their last game was a tough win against the #20 Arkansas Razorbacks.
The Bulldogs have had comfortable wins this season so far. Their only loss (31-16) came against the LSU Tigers. However, the team recovered quite well and won quite comprehensively in their last game (45-14) against Bowling Green. They beat Memphis (49-23) in Game 1 and Arizona (39-17) in Game 2. The offense seems to be clicking for the Bulldogs. It will be interesting to see how it fares against Texas.
Even though the Aggies have won three out of four games so far, their offense seems a bit dull. Although the defense has covered up for it, this is certainly something to worry about. Against a quality opponent, this weakness can be easily exposed.

Will Rogers, hands down, is probably the best quarterback in the league right now. His statistics are off the roof. He has picked up a massive 1400 passing yards in just four games this season. This is why Mississippi has been so good offensively. It will be an extremely tough task to keep this man down in the game.
