The Bears will give A&M problems with their passing attack, but they're not quite Texas Tech just yet. They'll put some yards up on the board, but in the end, A&M is still the more talented team and they should come out with a bit of a chip on their shoulder.
I expect to see a lot more from Jorvorskie Lane this weekend as well and he'll punish the Baylor defensive line, especially since he had the week off against Miami. The Aggies will win the game, but I don't think they'll cover the spread. A close game will open up in the fourth quarter, but by then, the natives will be awfully restless at Kyle Field.

I'm slightly concerned that there will be a hangover from the Miami game, but in A&M's favor they've had nine days to get it out of their system and a veteran team like this is much better at putting bad experiences behind them. Baylor's spread will cause some problems for the defense, but frankly they just don't have the athletes and expertise of Tech to pull it off consistently so I see the Bears making mistakes along the way and giving A&M several gifts.
The Aggies should be able to overpower the Bears with Lane up the middle and then pop some long runs to the outside. I also think they will sellout to stop the run, and I expect McGee to hit a couple of big pass plays. Will Martellus dive into the end zone again? I think he might. This one will stay interesting until early in the fourth quarter, but the Aggies prevail.

Has Miami made incredible strides since their embarrassment in Norman, accounting for their about-face last week? Or is Miami the same team they were in Norman, but nevertheless that far superior to A&M? How will the Aggies rebound after suffering a complete domination in every phase of the game from the opening kick to the final gun? When facing the Baylor Bears' xerox copy of Texas Tech's spread offense this Saturday, will the Aggies be able to play an entire game as well as they played the second half of the Tech game last year? Or will the Aggies instead look like they did during the first half of the Tech game last year? Who knows?
The only thing I feel really confident about regarding this game is that there won't be any middle ground. The Aggies will either look sharp and control the game most of the way, or they'll struggle from the beginning and wind up in overtime, if they're lucky.
I also predict Jerrod Johnson gets some serious minutes in this game, resulting in some exciting downfield passes for TD's.
