My Prediction: Another matchup of 6-6 teams here. The Aggies and Wildcats are going in opposite directions. Texas A&M had high expectations to begin the season, but lost 4 of their last 5 games. Northwestern is hot right now winning 4 of their last 5 led by QB Dan Persa. He’s had a great season since he came back from injury completing 74% of his passes and 17 touchdowns. I believe he will be the difference in this one. I can see a back-door cover late.
