The Aggies featured an SEC best offense last year, averaging 558 yards per game and believe it or not, those numbers could be better in 2013.


If Johnny Manziel plays, which I think he will, he will have a loaded group of receivers and running backs. Ben Malena should be the featured back, but highly touted transfers Brandon Williams from Oklahoma and Tra Carson from Oregon will add depth.
 

Oh…and they also have Dekaney’s Trey Williams. He’s pretty quick.
 

Mike Evans is back along with a bevy of young talented receivers including Sealy’s Ricky Seals-Jones. On the line, Jake Matthews will be the anchor, moving from right tackle to left tackle. The other 4 will fall into line, but with Johnny in the backfield, who knows what they’ll have to do when it comes to blocking.
 

The question mark for the Aggies is on defense. They lose some heavy hitters from the front seven, including line backers Sean porter and Jonathan Stewart and lineman Damontre Moore and Spencer Neely. Texas A&M is also dealing with suspensions in the defensive backfield to start the season but the unit is looking to prove the Aggies aren’t all about the offense.
 

Texas A&M opens with Rice and Sam Houston at home before welcoming Alabama to Kyle Field on September 14th. After that, their toughest test will be at LSU on November 23rd and the Aggies get lucky by avoiding SEC East heavyweights Georgia, Florida and South Carolina, that is until the SEC Championship Game.
