Websider Fearless Predictions

Every Friday, the Aggie Websider team takes their best shot at predicting the weekend's game. Who do they like this week in the Aggies showdown against Kansas.

So Kansas comes into the weekend with the No. 7 rush defense in the country, but that's going to change by 10:00pm on Saturday night. Jorvorskie Lane, Stephen McGee and Mike Goodson will run the ball against a Jayhawk team that hasn't faced any real competition. The Aggies did it to teams like Oklahoma and Texas last year and they'll do it again to the Jayhawks. The only way Kansas will win this game is if the Aggies turn the ball over. They'll eat the clock and keep it pretty low-scoring, pounding the interior line into exhaustion by the fourth quarter.

So is KU for real? Does beating, or losing to, A&M offer any kind of answer to that question? Hard to say. But the Jawhawk's success so far this season does not merit a foregone conclusion that KU will roll into and out of Kyle Field picking up an easy win in the process. It's become exceedingly difficult to predict A&M games, for one has no way of knowing whether we'll get the offense we used to beat OSU, or the one we used to sabotage the Tech game. If we get the one that "works," then the offense will rack up points, and the defense will be able to give KU's offense enough opposition for the Ags to outscore them. I like to believe in miracles, so I'll go with Franchione sticking to the I Formation and pounding KU's defense on Saturday. You gotta believe, right?

On paper it doesn't look like a good match-up for the Aggies. The Jayhawks are not only on a roll and nationally ranked, but they are sporting a stout run defense. Well, that run defense hasn't faced the likes of Jorvorskie Lane and the Aggies' Top 10 rushing offense. Plus, you have the Kyle Field factor, and a Kansas team that for the first time is the hunted, not the hunter in terms of playing on the road as a favorite with a lot at stake. The Aggies will play looser, and at home I think they have enough to get it done.
