Texas A&M comes to town next weekend for a matchup with the reigning and defending national champs, and will do so as heavy underdogs. The latest lines have the Tigers favored by 16.5 points over Jimbo Fisher’s Aggies.
Clemson defeated the A&M 28-26 last season in College Station in a game that saw Kelly Bryant start at QB and take a majority of the snaps. It was KB2’s final shining moment wearing orange, as he’d leave the team and transfer out just two weeks later.
Clemson and A&M both played their season openers last night, giving both a little extra prep time. The Tigers disposed of Georgia Tech in easy fashion 52-14 and the Aggies defeated big, bad Texas State 41-7.
The game is scheduled for a 330 pm kickoff and will be televised by ESPN/ABC.
