There is no sugarcoating that the Aggies need to win on Saturday and do it in impressive fashion. If the offensive continues to struggle and we keep seeing a plateau developmentally on a certain side of the ball, recruits will start looking at other places. No matter what NIL deals might be available, the lasting question will be, “Where can I go get prepared for the NFL?”
History is actually on the side of Texas A&M this weekend as they beat South Carolina in eight of the nine last games last season, being the outlier. Spencer Rattler has looked good this year, but he will give the Aggies a few chances for turnovers throughout the game.
Max Johnson stuck around for a situation just like this one. Now he has to take that next step, and with a struggling Gamecock’s secondary, Saturday will be the perfect time to get back on track.

Jimbo Fisher previews Texas A&M - South Carolina
The Aggies have been struggling offensively during the second half of games this season and Jimbo took a few moments to address when discussing the South Carolina game.
“We were up around 40 (points per game). We were playing really well. And we played well in the first halves. We just have not played well in the second half of these last two games. We’ve got to make sure we are executing the whole game. We had opportunities.”
