TeamWebsider Colorado Game Predictions

Here are Team Websider's fearless predictions for the Colorado game. After laying an egg against Kansas State two weeks ago, the team has turned it around and will be looking to become bowl eligible with a third straight conference win. If that happens, I think we can say that this program has turned the corner and 2009 has been a success.

This is a huge game for the Aggies to say the least. Not only is bowl eligibility on the line, but this game will measure this team's maturity level and how far they've turned the corner. IF they play a sloppy game and come out with a close win or they lose, then we are still dealing with a team that has a ways to go and will have a major uphill battle next week in Norman. But if they come out business-like and handle Colorado in a way that they should, I see a game that will get very interesting next week. I do not see how the Buffaloes can stop Texas A&M. CU has been drug up and down the field by all opponents this year. I see Jerrod Johnson having a very big day and the offense stays on a roll. On defense, I expect the Aggies to play their best game of the year. I look for the defense to stand up and just smother Colorado. A&M fans should enjoy watching the night games around college football after a big win in the afternoon.

Texas A&M sends shockwaves this week, clinching bowl eligibility in huge fashion on the road. Von Miller has his best game of the year against a fairly young, but very physical offensive line. The Aggie offensive line continues to improve, as well as the run game.

The Aggie offense will struggle early in the ball game. Nwachukwu has been limited all week with a concussion and senior wideout Howard Morrow has been sidelined with an ankle sprain. The running game will be more important than ever and will be a vital part of the offensive game plan. Expect to see different formations and looks from the Aggie offense. Colorado will put up a fight early on but the Aggie defense will dominate and the offense will find a way to put up points. I like Texas A&M by ten points in a too close for comfort win in Boulder.

As long as the offensive line comes ready to play, the Texas A&M offense should be able to move the ball and score on the Buffalo defense. However, the key matchup of the game will be Colorado's formidable running attack against the Aggies' defense and their ability to stop the run. Texas A&M has struggled at times to stop a physical ground game. Iowa State could run the ball last weekend, but two timely interceptions thwarted any attempt to make that game competitive. But when Joe Kines called inside run blitzes on short yardage situations, it usually worked. I'll be curious to see if he plans to employ the run blitz on Saturday. If Texas A&M's defense plays straight-up all game, Colorado can run the ball and control the clock which will shorten the game. If they call run blitzes, I don't think Colorado has the ability to take advantage of man coverage in the secondary and A&M can win this game by 2-3 touchdowns. If Kines plays a base defense most of the afternoon, this could be a one score ball game with minimal offensive possessions. Texas A&M is the better team, but turnovers neutralizes advantages on paper. If A&M can avoid a negative turnover ratio, they should win by at least two touchdowns.
