Texas A&M vs. Florida
Line: Florida -3.0  

Keys to the Game: 

Texas A&M played very well against top-ranked Alabama last week in College Station. The Aggies allowed 232 rushing yards to the Crimson Tide and were hurt by big plays in the running game last weekend in Kyle Field.  

The Aggies lost the turnover battle -2 to Alabama and must be able to find ways this Saturday to win on the road in the Swamp against another physical defensive front seven in the Gators.  

Texas A&M is completing 57% of their passes as a team for 1,700 yards with 7 touchdowns and 3 interceptions.  

Quarterback Kellen Mond will be going up against an experienced secondary that can mix up coverages and force Mond to make his reads and progressions in the pocket.  

The Aggies are averaging 200 passing yards per game and are rushing for 223 yards per game entering this contest.  

Over the past two weeks against South Carolina and Alabama, the Aggies have converted 10 of 30 third downs (30%) and will be facing a Gators defense that is holding opposing offenses to 30% on the year in third down attempts.  

The Gators are holding opposing offenses to 52% completions on the season and have played well against veteran quarterbacks Kyle Shurmur (Vanderbilt) and Danny Etling (LSU) holding both quarterbacks to a combined 27 of 56 (48%) for 389 yards (194.5 ypg) with 4 TDs and no interceptions.  

Florida has been able to run the football more consistently in four straight SEC games (Tennessee, Kentucky, Vanderbilt and LSU) has rushed for 766 rushing yards (191.5 yards per game) with 9 touchdowns.
