3* Saturday Night SMASH on Texas A&M -7
Louisiana Tech has enjoyed a nice start, but it gets a harsh dose of reality here. It is yet to see a team as talented as Texas A&M, whose only loss is a 3-point set back to a Florida team that's 4th in the country.

The Aggies are better than the Bulldogs at nearly every spot on the field, and that's always been the case. Texas A&M is 10-0 all-time versus Louisiana Tech, winning these by an average of 29.7 points.

The Bulldogs are also on an 0-13 slide versus ranked opponents.

While Tech has an explosive offense, its defense has been atrocious. The Bulldogs rank 123rd in the country in total defense with 531.0 yards allowed per game. A Texas A&M offense that ranks 12th nationally with 516.8 yards per game should be able to move the ball at will.

A&M's defense, which only gives up 363.6 yards per contest, will come up with a lot more stops than the Bulldogs in this one. Lay the points.
