Texas A&M Aggies game notes
Jaylen Henderson Was 25-for-35 passing for 294 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 42-30 loss to LSU.
Despite the loss, Henderson shined once again for the Aggies. Since becoming the starting quarterback, he has thrown six touchdowns in three games. He also rushed for two more scores in the span. There is a lot of uncertainty following the firing of A&M coach Jimbo Fisher, but the Aggies may want to try to keep Henderson at quarterback no matter which new coach ends up being hired.
Oklahoma State Cowboys Game Notes
Ollie Gordon Scott Wright of The Oklahoman reports that he will return to Oklahoma State for the 2024 season.
Gordon's presence on the Cowboys' roster for 2024 represents a major improvement for Oklahoma State. The All-American running back led the nation in rushing yards with 1,614 and won the Doak Walker Award as college football's top running back.

Texas A&M vs. Oklahoma State betting predictions
Take Texas A&M. Maybe I'm overthinking things, but I can't understand why the Aggies are only three points. Texas A&M was hit as hard on the transfer portal as any other team in the country. Mike Elko was hired to change things up in College Station, but he won't be a part of tonight's game. Fran Brown is the interim coach tonight for A&M, but he has one foot out the door because he will be the new defensive coordinator at Syracuse next season. Not Evan Stewart or Aeneas Smith. No chance, right?
And yet… the Aggies are just a 3-point dog.
Here's what I think will happen tonight: Oklahoma State will try to lean on Gordon — and rightfully so. But A&M does a decent job of taking on the world and forcing the Cowboys to be too one-dimensional. Even without their top two receivers, Jalen Henderson throws enough to OK State's suspect defense and the Aggies turn around enough to make this a field goal game.
