Kellen Mond, QB
This is Kellen Mond’s time to shine. He will face off against a defense that truly has no idea how to stop him from doing what he loves to do- run. This kid had Alabama quite a few times running around like chickens with their heads cut off trying to catch him and that is the number one team in the nation. What do you think will happen against a team that has no defense to speak of? Want an entertaining player to watch? Keep an eye on #11. He has talent and will surely make Aggie fans quite excited in this one.
The Aggie running back corps will be highlighted in this one as well, but I am more excited about Kellen Mond than anything right now.
Razorback Offensive Line
One of the most important things for Arkansas will be to protect their quarterback on Saturday morning. The Aggie defense has shown themselves as a force to be reckoned with. If the Razorback offensive line can’t protect their quarterback and can’t keep plays alive by hitting the blocks that they are supposed to- this will be a long day for those in red and white, or at the very least a longer day than it already will be.
It would also be good for the Razorbacks to settle on a quarterback, but that may be asking too much from this team as of right now.
GAME PREVIEW AND ANALYSIS
This truly is the Aggies game to lose at this point. Texas A&M is coming off of a loss against the likes of No. 1 Alabama, a team that Arkansas will play in Week 6. The Razorbacks are coming off back to back to back losses to Colorado State, North Texas and Auburn. One of those is acceptable, the other two…yikes. To say that Arkansas is struggling this season is the understatement of the century, at least. Chad Morris hasn’t exactly taken this team to the place he wanted to, unless he wanted to be unranked and at the bottom of the conference. If that was his goal, he’s doing great.
Texas A&M, on the other hand, is 2-2 yet sitting among the top of the SEC in terms of talent and ability. Those two losses come to the No. 1 and No. 3 teams in the nation, so they aren’t any disappointing losses or anything- except you know when you lose to Clemson on a touchback that wasn’t a touchback- but it is fine, really I am fine.
This is a game that Chad Morris and company have to win and that the Aggies are all but expected to. In the battle of Jimbo Fisher and Chad Morris, one new head coach is certainly more prepared for this than the other. I will let you figure out which one is which.
