Texas A&M Aggies vs Georgia Bulldogs Score Prediction
The Aggies come to town with a 7-3 record and a four-game winning streak. Jimbo Fisher's squad had a tough opening to the season, going 3-3 in their first six games with admirable losses to Clemson, Alabama and Auburn.
With the end of their season featuring road games against Georgia and the top-ranked LSU Tigers, the Aggies have a tough finish to a brutal schedule that will see them play three #1 ranked teams.
They will be the first team to do so.
Here are the keys to the matchup that will determine this week's score prediction:
- Will the weather play a factor? - There's currently a 95% chance of rain in the forecast for tomorrow at 3:30, and it's expected to rain the majority of the morning leading up to game time.
- Can A&M continue to run the ball? - Over their 4-game winning streak, A&M is rushing for 240 YPG, including a 319-yard explosion last week against South Carolina.
- Can A&M hold up against the run? - It's the question every Georgia opponent must answer if they are going to beat Kirby Smart's football team.
- Will Georgia escape healthy? - Georgia's front seven on both sides of the football are banged up right now. It's imperative that they win out, but also get as healthy as possible if they are going to make a CFP push.
Score Prediction (Georgia Wins 27-17)
With the weather set to be the way it is, you'd expect to see a football game similar to the one against Kentucky. The only difference is, Kellen Mond is more than capable at the quarterback position.
The Dooley Field maintenance crew is one of the best in the country, but that grass is going to take over two inches of rainwater in the next 24-hours. If Sanford Stadium were furnished with turf this would be a different conversation, but it's not. Expect a sloppy playing surface that favors the Dawgs downhill attack much more.
Georgia wins on the back of a 200-yard rushing performance in the midst of driving rain. Texas A&M will score late to make this game appear a bit closer than it appears, as has been the case for the majority of this season for the Dawgs.
ESPN's Football Power Index gives Georgia an 83.3% chance of winning.
