While Texas A&M has gotten off to a slow start – falling 18-14 in the season opener versus Arkansas State and struggling against New Mexico State, pulling out the 28-22 win – ABC Sports still wants Canes vs. Aggies in their prime time line up next weekend.
The Miami Hurricanes fell 26-3 at No. 5 Florida last Saturday, but out of the loss came the message that The U is not as far off as some had predicted.
For over three quarters, the Canes were in the Gators’ face, holding it to 9-3 the majority of the contest and proving that defense is still the name of the game for Miami. Even with a Heisman winner and two Heisman candidates running Florida’s offense.
Miami/Texas A&M is either slated for 3:30pm ET or 8:00pm ET, depending on how this weekend’s games play out. Both the Canes and Aggies have byes this Saturday.
