Why they could lose: The Cowboys offense has been practically unstoppable thus far, averaging 57 points per game and ranking second nationally in passing offense (391 yards per game). The Aggie defense has been stout, allowing just 3.6 yards per play, but it hasn't seen anything near what the Pokes will bring to the table Thursday night.
Noteworthy: Receivers Jeff Fuller (18 catches for 280 yards) and Ryan Swope (21 catches for 202 yards) are the only Aggies with double-digit catches this season. ... The Aggies rank No. 4 nationally in rushing defense, No. 10 in total defense and No. 4 in tackles for loss. ... Texas A&M's wins came over Stephen F. Austin, Louisiana Tech and Florida International. ... The Aggies have 23 kickoffs and zero touchbacks this season. ...The Aggies have a minus-2 turnover margin (7 turnovers gained, 9 turnovers lost).
