2010 College Football Predictions - Texas A&M Aggies

The Texas A&M Aggies finished the 2009 College Football Picks season with a 6-7 record and finished 5th in the Big 12 South division, they went 6-6-1 against the he spread, going over the football odds total 8 times and under 5 times.
The Aggies also went 3-7 their last 10 with a Independence bowl loss to Georgia 44-20.
Texas A&M is a college football program that should be better than they have been in the past decade, the last time they won the big 12 conference was in 1998 and the school has been trying to regain their form.
This sports handicapper believes Texas A&M should only play second fiddle to the University of Texas in this football rich state.
The Aggies averaged 465.
8 total yards per contest in 2009 and that ranked 5th in the entire NCAA, the passing offense led the way with 281.
6 yards per game, Texas A&M rushed for 184.
2 yards per game, 30th in college football and averaged 32.
8 points per game, 19th nationally.
The offense was led by quarterback Jerrod Johnson's 3,579 yards and Christine Michael scored 10 touchdowns which also led the team.
The defense was a different story they ranked 103rd overall giving up 426.
3 yards per game, they ranked 106th in the air giving up 254.
7 yards per contest, 90th nationally giving up 171.
6 yards per game on the ground and the unit allowed 33.
5 points per game.
The Aggies return all of their skilled players and that included a quarterback that threw for over 3,500 yards, tow running backs that gained over 750 yards rushing a piece and three receivers with at least 40 catches.
That is impressive and the unit should be even better in 2010.
The offensive line returns both guards from last season, Evan Eike and Patrick Lewis are solid and transfer Matt Allen should be the starter at center but both offensive tackles could be freshman and that could pose a few problems, overall this unit should again be one of the best in the Big 12 if not the entire country.
Texas A&M scored 31 points three times last season and still lost.
New defensive coordinator Tim DeRuyter came over form air force and promises to make things better in College Station.
In hopes of getting more speed on the football field the Aggies will switch to a 3-4 alignment that the old wrecking crew used to play.
Linebacker Von Miller had 17 quarterback sacks in 2009 and that led the nation will return but the unit was still among the worst in college football in pass defense.
The Texas A&M secondary will be led by strong safety Trent Hunter and cornerback Coryell Judie.
Outside of Miller the unit doesn't have many playmakers and this must change.
Texas A&M will finish behind Texas, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State in the Big 12 south division with a 6-6 overall record.
