We have an ACC vs. SEC showdown in the Lone Star State as the No. 13 Miami Hurricanes hit the road to take on the No. 24 Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday, September 17 at 9 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Kyle Field in College Station, TX, and is scheduled to air on ESPN.
Miami (2-0) toyed around with Southern Miss on Saturday, but eventually pulled away for a 30-7 victory. Running back Henry Parrish Jr. took 23 carries for 109 yards and a touchdown in the win.
Texas A&M (1-1) had a miserable time on Saturday as they were upset by Appalachian State 17-14. The Aggies struggled mightily on offense and only produced 186 yards total. Kicker Caden Davis missed what would’ve been the game-tying field goal late in the fourth quarter.
Here’s all the data you’ll want, and a pick for the game!

Texas A&M games are strictly in the under category for me until further notice. Only managing to gain 186 yards of offense against Appalachian State last week is a major red flag, and there’s questions on if Haynes King is the right fit for the offense. The rumors of Max Johnson starting in a huge non-conference game are here for a reason.
The Aggie defense however should give Tyler Van Dyke problems, and limit their production on offense. Expect a rock fight, take the under.
