Head coach Dennis Franchione is still in search of a dominant Texas A&M team.
College football betting fans expected more out of Franchione and he has not delivered. The Aggies went 9-4 last season and 8-3-1 against the NCAA football betting spread so they were a good team for college football betting fans to wager on. College football betting fans see that the problem is A&M finished third in the South and was blown out by California in the Holiday Bowl. That is not what football betting fans expect. College football betting fans know that Texas A&M scored 27.9 PPG, ranking them 34th nationally. NCAA College football betting fans know that their rushing game was rated 8th but their passing was weak. Jorvorskie Lane (166 CAR, 725 YDs, 4.4 AVG, 19 TDs) and sophomore Mike Goodson return to lead the ground game and QB Stephen McGee (62% COMP, 2,295 YDs, 12 TDs, 2 INTs) is an accurate passer.
Football betting fans know that on defense, the front four are good led by senior end Chris Harrington, who notched 7.5 sacks. At LB, the team has Misi Tupe (54 tackles, 14 solo) and Mark Dodge. College football betting fans see that becoming a consistent Big 12 power is the Aggie challenge in 2007. College football betting fans know that A&M likes to run the football and can control games. College football betting fans know that the offense will try to grind it out again this season. The defense was erratic throughout the year but they have a lot of players back. College football betting fans know that in the last six games of the 2006 season, A&M allowed three teams (Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and Cal) to all go over 200 yards on the ground. Football betting fans know that the Aggies sacked opposing passers just 20 times last year.
