Miami vs. Texas A&M SEC Football Prediction
When comparing this matchup to last season’s, the Hurricanes and Aggies are likely to score more points this time around in Miami, as both offenses you could argue are improved. As to who wins however, I’ll say that Miami comes away with a close win over Texas A&M on their home field to avenge last seasons loss, with this game one that the Aggies could very easily come away victorious as well. Prediction: Miami 24, Texas A&M 21
