Two undefeated teams will do battle on Thursday night in primetime as the Oklahoma St. Cowboys play host to the Texas A&M Aggies in a monster Big 12 clash. Each team comes into the game at 3-0 (2-1 ATS) and have been piling up the points on offense. However, neither has played a real test like they will face in this matchup.
The Aggies come into the game undefeated, putting up 41 points per contest. However, the competition has been weak at best as they have beat up on Florida International, Louisiana Tech and Stephen F. Austin in the early going. In their last game against Florida International, the Aggies only won by 7 points despite being 28.5 point favorites. Texas A&M ranks 9th in yards per game in the nation at 501.3 per contest. Again, this needs to be taken with a grain of salt given the competition, but they do have skill players on the offense. QB Jerrod Johnson has thrown for 865 yards and 7 touchdowns and RB Christine Michael has 331 yards on the ground so far. The defense is also 10th in the nation in terms of yards allowed, giving up just 255.7 per game.
Oklahoma State has also started the season a perfect 3-0 and like the Aggies has done it against inferior competition. Wins over Tulsa, Troy and Washington State are slightly more impressive than A&M’s competition. They have done it with an electric offense, amassing 57 points per game so far, which is good for 2nd in the NCAA. The team has put a national-best 596 yards per game as well and are to be feared in the pass and run game. QB Brandon Weeden has 975 passing yards and 11 touchdowns, 8 of which to receiver Justin Blackmon. Tailback Kendall Hunter has gone off for 473 yards on the ground in their first three games.

Texas A&M vs. Oklahoma St. Prediction for Week 5:
Spread Prediction (TOP PLAY) – Each of these teams features an offense that has feasted on their weak opponents to date. The teams obviously have a history against each other that we can look at to help handicap this game, as they both play in the Big 12 South division. Oklahoma State won last year’s matchup 36-31 and has taken two straight in the series after losing 4 in a row to the Aggies prior to that. The Cowboys are also 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games as the home favorite. I think their home field advantage, combined with a more balanced and scary offense gives them the edge in this one. Top Play Prediction: OKLAHOMA STATE -3
Game Total Prediction – The scoreboards have been absolutely lit up by both of these teams so far this season and as a result, the total is set quite high at 67 points in this one. I don’t expect each team to keep up their average points per game in this game as they face their toughest tests yet. The history in this series has shown some high scoring affairs with 5 of the last 6 going over the posted total. 4 of the last 5 at Oklahoma State have also gone over. The total is set high but 4 of the last 5 in the series have seen 67 or more points scored. Prediction: OVER 67 Points
