Watch Pittsburgh vs Boston College Live Online Football 2020 Free .Each Friday, the Sports Illustrated-AllGators staff will provide predictions and pre-game analysis before the Florida Gators take on their weekly opponent.
We have decided to tally prediction records as the season goes on. These are purely based on Gators’ win/loss predictions, and not factoring in the spread. With that, each of our contributors has gotten off to an undefeated start for the 2020 season.
This week, Florida heads to College Station, Texas this week for its first ranked matchup of the season. The No. 4 Gators will take on the No. 21 Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday at noon, on ESPN. Despite being the toughest opponent of the year thus far, and going on the road, our staff is once again confident that the Gators will exit with a victory.
Zach Goodall (2-0):
I think this game will be closer than some folks are letting on.
For one, a win against No. 4 Florida would be a massive tone-setter for Jimbo Fisher in his third year at Texas A&M, after what’s been a disappointing first two years of his 10-year, $75 million, fully guaranteed contract. Against what’s been a struggling defense to put it lightly, the Aggies are capable of putting up points.rty
Not as many as Florida, though. A&M’s defense has allowed nearly 10.5 yards per passing attempt as quarterbacks are completing 71.4% of their passes. Gators quarterback Kyle Trask and his expansive arsenal of weapons have to be licking their chops. Pick your poison: Kyle Pitts and/or Kadarius Toney have themselves a big day, depending on how much attention is put on Pitts by the Aggies’ defense.rtuyh
Score: Florida 38, Texas A&M 33

The Florida Gators will face a tough task this Saturday against the Texas A&M Aggies. A matchup that will ultimately be Florida’s toughest opponent thus far this season. The last time Florida faced off against Texas A&M was in 2017, a game in which came down to the wire. Ultimately, this game could come down to the wire too due to the explosiveness of the quarterbacks on both sides of the football, for different reasons.
The Gators will have a tough time containing veteran quarterback Kellen Mond, but will ultimately live by the arm of their own quarterback in Kyle Trask.sztrhy

Graham Marsh (2-0):
I like a shootout here, Big-12 style. Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond has had his struggles, but he still threw for three touchdowns against Alabama this week while the Gators’ safety room is a massive concern.rts
Otherwise, Kyle Trask and Co. should have a huge day, huge enough to win a big game on the road. TAMU is young in the secondary and won’t be able to keep up with Kyle Pitts, Kadarius Toney, and Trevon Grimes all game long. I’m predicting a Big-12 style loss for the former Big-12 team.stj
