Fresh off a 70-14 win against South Carolina State, the Texas A&M Aggies will look for their first SEC win when they host the Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday.
Both Arkansas and Texas A&M are 0-1 in conference play with the Aggies losing 20-17 to Florida while Arkansas got blown out 52-0 by Alabama in their SEC opener. Texas A&M is coming off back-to-back impressive wins, outscoring their opponents 118-17 over the last two weeks. The Aggies have been strong both offensively and defensively this season, ranking 11th in the country in offensive points per game and 12th in points allowed.
While Texas A&M has played well recently, the Razorbacks have struggled, losing three straight games. The Razorbacks are coming off a 35-26 loss to Rutgers and will now go on the road for the first time this season. Tyler Wilson returned last week for the Razorbacks and threw for 419 yards and three touchdowns, but it wasn't enough. Arkansas' defense has really struggled this season, ranking 110th in the country in points per game allowed.
Arkansas has had the advantage recently, winning the last three meetings.
