The Aggies grabbed a close 17-9 win over Miami in 2022, and as the two teams meet again, A&M is the more prepared and developed of the two. Despite their brutal end to the 2022 season in which they went 2-6 in their last eight games, the Aggies can cover the spread against this Hurricanes team.
Miami’s home advantage is not like other team’s home advantage, and the A&M team has some top talent. They may still be working on developing said talent, but QB Connor Weigman and his receivers give them plenty to work with.
