Texas A&M 66, Sam Houston State 17
Sam Houston State is one of the best teams in the FCS (the Bearkats are ranked third nationally in their division) and they made an impressive run to the national championship game last season. While it wouldn't be surprising to see the Bearkats show some fight, the Aggies are simply too talented and deep. Some wonder if the Aggies will come out sluggish or slow because they're coming off the high of beating then-No. 1 Alabama. I don't think they will, for a few reasons. First, this is their first home game since Oct. 20, so they'll feed off some of the crowd's energy. Second, the Aggies are traditionally a fast starting team. Third, not letting up has been drilled into their heads from the start of the week, when Kevin Sumlin sat with his seniors and discussed finishing their careers strong.
