These two teams have only met two times, and all three have gone in Texas A&M's favor. Given that this is now South Carolina's permanent Western division opponent, they might want to turn that around in the near future. The two schools met for the first time in 2014 in Columbia, with A&M rolling up a 52-28 win in the season opener for both teams. That game was highlighted by former Aggie quarterback Kenny Hill's record-breaking 511-yard performance.

Last year, South Carolina made its first trip ever to College Station and lost 35-28.

As far as this season is concerned, these teams are on opposite sides of the spectrum. South Carolina is sitting at 2-2 on the season and barely alive in the SEC East race while Texas A&M is undefeated and looks like a legit contender for the SEC West.

This isn't really a rivalry, but the fans are going to keep trying as long as the SEC makes them play.

Three big things to know

1. The Aggies have a pretty big win streak on hand: On Saturday afternoon, The Aggies will be trying to improve to 5-0 for three straight times with head coach Kevin Sumlin. That hasn't been done in quite awhile. In fact, the last time that happened in College Station was when former head coach Homer Norton’s Aggies started the 1939, 1940, and 1941 seasons with at least eight straight victories.

2. Will Muschamp has beaten Texas A&M before: In 2012, Texas A&M was in its first season in the SEC, coming over from the Big 12 when the SEC realigned. Muschamp was in his second year at the University of Florida for the Aggies' first-ever SEC matchup. He led the Florida Gators to a 20-17 win in College Station.

3. Texas A&M's run game has been explosive this season: Per S&P+,Texas A&M's Rushing IsoPPP, which measures rushing explosiveness, ranks ninth in the entire country. The Aggies opened this season with four straight 200-plus rushing performances, which hasn’t happened at Texas A&M since 1997.
