Blake Frazier of BetOnline.com warned: “It’s really simple: Texas A&M is a poor second-half team, vulnerable to almost any opponent in major college football. Northwestern is one of the few teams which is not equipped to expose the Aggies on the field.”

He added:  “Northwestern simply does not respond well in the second halves of games, which means that Texas A&M is sitting pretty before kickoff time arrives. Texas A&M lost five games in 2011 when it led at halftime, so the presence of Northwestern on the opposite sideline will be music to the Aggies’ ears in their final game before their move to the Southeastern Conference.

“Northwestern, due to repeated injuries to star quarterback Dan Persa, has failed to find a groove on offense this season.”

ESPN.com had this to offer about the Saturday afternoon matchup:  “Two exciting quarterbacks -- Texas A&M's Ryan Tannehill and Northwestern's Dan Persa -- and two shaky defenses could create a shootout in Houston. The Aggies will stay close to home, while the Wildcats go bowling in Texas for the second straight year. What's the motivation level for the Aggies after losing four of their last five and having coach Mike Sherman get fired?”

The Aggies are 0-9 Against The Spread in their last 9 neutral site games, which is a little scary.  They are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games as a favorite.  Likewise, they are 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 games after allowing less than 275 total yards in their previous game and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 bowl games.
