What you need to know
The Massachusetts Minutemen will hit the road for the third week in a row, heading to Kyle Field at noon ET Saturday. Both teams are set to try their luck after losing tight competitions in their previous games.
Last week, the Minutemen were close but without a cigar when they lost 35–33 to the Arkansas State Red Wolves. Despite the loss, UMass got some good results from RB Ellis Merryweather, who rushed for two touchdowns and 122 yards on 29 carries.
Speaking of close games, it was close but not a cigar for the Texas A&M Aggies as they lost 13-10 to the Auburn Tigers last week. Quarterback Conner Weigman had a pretty memorable game, fumbled once just 121 yards away.
UMass is a clear underdog so they are hoping the size of the fight will determine this fight. Those betting against the spread should not have high hopes for them as the team has 2-4 ATS when they are expected to lose.
UMass is now 1-9 and A&M is 3-7. A couple of defensive stats to keep in mind before the match starts: UMass enters the competition with an average of 184.5 passing yards per game, which is the 17th best in the country. But the Aggies are even better: They rank seventh in the nation when it comes to passing yards allowed per game, averaging just 162.2. Let’s see if this advantage gives A&M a path to victory.
