Aggie Websider's Fearless Predictions (9/1)

Every Friday, Aggie Websider's David Sandhop, Dallas Shipp and Chip Winfrey give their predictions for the upcoming game.

David Sandhop
Yeah, I know they have been a good Division II program. I know they have a pretty good returning quarterback and a salty defense. I know they shocked Colorado last year. Those are reasons why I'm seeing some predictions that this will be a closer than anticipated 14-21 point game. WRONG. The Bobcats were embroiled in a drug scandal and its successful coach resigned after spring practices. Let me repeat, AFTER spring practices. This team has been learning new schemes under a new coach for just the past three weeks. Even if the team is talented by Division II standards, they just aren't ready. Throw in an experienced and much more physical and talented Texas A&M team at Kyle Field and I see a route. Aggies cruise against the Bobcats.
Texas A&M 48
Montana St. 10

Dallas Shipp
Stephen McGee said he didn't know how in the world it would be possible to get ready for a season without practicing the offense in the spring, working on it individually in the summer and then tweaking things in August camp, but that's what the Montana State Bobcats have to do on Saturday. They have substantially less talent and they only had three weeks to learn and install their system. Head coach Rob Ash said he just hopes they get the right personnel on the field and hold onto the ball in this week's press conference, so don't expect much from the Bobcats. This one will be ugly, especially in the last three quarters.
Texas A&M - 45
Montana State - 9

Chip Winfrey
Despite how eager the fans are to see the Aggies come out firing this season, don't expect Franchione to reveal very much of the playbook to the University of Miami. Montana St. has made life tough on some Div 1 opponents recently, but this weekend's contests will NOT be one of those games. A&M is too big, too fast, and too good for the Bobcats to hang around very long.
Texas A&M -- 38
Montana St -- 13
