#20 TEXAS A&M AGGIES (+3) @ MIAMI (FL) HURRICANES
Is this coming out party for Jr. QB Stephen McGee of Texas A&M? After turning some heads during his sophomore season (2,295 pass 666 rush 62% 16 tds 2 ints), McGee and his Crash & Burn RBs (Jorvoskie Lane & Mike Goodson) seem poised to make a run at double digit wins this season. Prior to McGee taking the commands, Coach Franchione’s starters were 3-13 away from home…but last year, the sophomore led squad was 5-1 on the road. This year, the Aggies return the majority of their O-Line, and as mentioned, So. RB Goodson (2006: 847 yard 6.7 avg 4 tds) and Jr. RB Lane (2006: 725 yard, 19 tds), and are starting to develop some playmaking at WRs. While the defense had to replace a handful of starters and hasn’t look dominate early-on, their starting to take form and have much better depth than they’ve had in the past. Moving to the wild Florida boys, they’ve looked solid in their two victories under new coach Randy Shannon (Marshall & FL Int.), but were absolutely crashed at Oklahoma 51-13. While the Sooners are something special, they made Miami look slow and proved that pressure on their QBs would lead to numerous mistakes. Sr. QB Kyle Wright has not had the career he had hoped and just recently regained his starting role with the squad. Obviously, playing at home with all the hooligans should give the Hurricanes a lift early, but I just don’t see how they contain the duel-threat QB of the Aggies and don’t get worn-down by the two-headed monster in the backfield.
Final Score: TEXAS A&M 27 MIAMI HURRICANES 24
