Sam Acho, Stanford Steve discuss the key matchup for Arkansas-Texas A&M
Arkansas and Texas A&M will face off this Saturday in an SEC matchup in the annual Southwest Classic in Arlington, Texas.
This game will certainly be one to watch between two ranked teams.
One of the major players to look out for on the Aggie side is quarterback Max Johnson.
Johnson, a transfer from LSU, has avoided pressure so far. On ESPN’s College Football Live, Sam Acho added his thoughts on how Johnson can secure a victory for the Aggies against Arkansas.
“We saw a couple (of) times, Max Johnson, (whether) its third-and-long and the defense was giving him pressure he would avoid and evade the rush,” Acho said. “We haven’t seen him do that last year at LSU, so if Max Johnson can do that, I think that can lead A&M to a victory.”
On the other side, “Stanford Steve” Coughlin gave his perspective on Johnson and how he predicts it to play out against Arkansas’ offense.
“Max did what he needed to do to get that win against Miami and get Texas A&M back on track,” Coughlin said. “Even if Texas A&M is able to take advantage of that secondary in Arkansas. I really like what Arkansas’ offense brings to the table.”
We will see if Max Johnson and the Aggies can live up to the hype that Acho and Steve have convinced CFB Live viewers.
