Why Florida can cover

The Gators bring a high-powered offense to the table, with early Heisman Trophy candidate Kyle Trask at the helm. Trask has completed 71.8 percent of his passes, averaging 9.6 yards per attempt, this season and he has 684 yards, 10 touchdowns and only one interception through two weeks. Trask’s favorite target, junior tight end Kyle Pitts, is also terrifying for any opponent, as Pitts is tied for the national lead with six touchdown catches. All told, Florida is one of the best offensive teams in the country, averaging 495 yards per game, and the Gators rank third in the SEC in total offense, fourth in passing offense, sixth in rushing offense and first in touchdown passes. 

In fact, Florida is a top-five scoring offense in the country, averaging 44.5 points per game, and the Gators are dynamic on the ground, gaining 5.2 yards per carry to tie for the second-best mark in the SEC. Texas A&M’s defense could be vulnerable, including SEC-worst marks in passing yards allowed per attempt and completion percentage allowed, and Trask is fully capable of denting the scoreboard with another explosive afternoon.

Why Texas A&M can cover

Florida has been tremendous in the first two games but, defensively, the Gators haven’t played up to their talent level. Florida ranks as the second-worst defense in the SEC on a yardage basis, allowing 471 yards per game, and the Gators are giving up 327.5 passing yards per game. Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond, who has thrown for almost 8,000 yards and 56 touchdowns in his career, should be able to attack Florida’s secondary, and Mond also has 1,351 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns in his four-year tenure at the helm. 

Elsewhere, the Aggies have been effective running the ball this season, averaging 5.2 yards per carry and ranking in the top five in the SEC at 149 yards per game. Texas A&M is also best in the conference at avoiding sacks, giving up only one in the first two weeks, and the Aggies are a top-five team in the SEC on third down, converting 51.9 percent of their chances.
