This Aggie team has nothing to lose, whether it's the interim coaching staff, the large senior class, or the younger players looking to make a few plays to show the new staff. The team has been very loose all week and the offense will be aggressive and play well. Expect big plays by the offenses, as PSU will score as well. Howevern Ags want it more playing in front of a dominant Aggie crowd.

For the first time in a long time, the Aggies are having fun again. Their press conferences have been light hearted, they're not going full speed like they did during bowl practices last year in San Diego and they're coming off an impressive offensive performance against a Texas team that looked pretty good against Arizona State in this week's Holiday Bowl. It will come down to the battle in the trenches. Can A&M run the ball against Penn State's No. 6 ranked rush defense? I think they can, and will. Aggie quarterback Stephen McGee also knows what he can do with his arm and I expect Les Koenning to open up the offense just like he did against Texas. Penn State will make plays as well though in what should be an outstanding game. Aggies score late to make the score look bigger than it really was.

This interim Aggie coaching staff will be playing for their next jobs and the players will be wanting to position themselves well for the new Sherman regime. Look for the Aggies to open things up on offense in an attempt to counter a strong Penn State run defense that ranked No. 6 nationally and take advantage of a Penn State pass defense that ranks a still respectable No. 46. The Penn State offense is similar to that of the A&M, and the Aggie defense should match up pretty well with the Nittany Lions. In the end, this game will likely be determined by turnovers and intangibles like which team is motivated to win this bowl game. We hope the Aggies will come to play this bowl game, and if they do, should emerge with what many nationally will consider an upset win.

With Texas A&M being in head coach transition, staff coaching to find a new
home, players out on both sides, this one is hard to handicap. Penn State is
a physical team, tough in the front four on defense, but not as fast in the
secondary as teams A&M has faced I expect A&M to move the ball in what
should be a very balanced attack. McGee will throw a pick, maybe two in this
game, if they can withstand that I expect a similar battle to what was seen
at Kyle on T+1. Will Penn State turn the ball over as they have in all their
losses? I think they will.
