Texas A&M vs Sam Houston Game Preview

Why Sam Houston Will Win

This is a high-powered Sam Houston team that went 11-1 last year with a great offense that averaged 41 points per game, one of the FCS’s best defense – especially against the run – and with enough good players returning to fit the systems.

What’s Going To Happen

The Aggies can’t get just off the bus and think it can run a light scrimmage against this Sam Houston team.

It’ll be a wee bit of a fight for a while. The Bearkats will get the offense going well enough – and the defensive front will hold up fine against the Aggie running game – to keep this interesting.

However, new starting QB Haynes King and the A&M passing game will keep the chains moving in the second half as the team finally starts to pull away.
