Expectations are high for Texas A&M as the No. 10 Aggies host Vanderbilt in the season opener for both SEC teams on Saturday night in College Station, Texas.
The Aggies and third-year head coach Jimbo Fisher are coming off an 8-5 campaign capped by a Texas Bowl win against Oklahoma State.
Texas A&M placed a league-high eight players on the coaches' three-team, preseason All-SEC squad. That includes first-team defensive lineman Bobby Brown III and second-team quarterback Kellen Mond, a senior who has thrown for 7,379 yards and 52 touchdowns while running for 1,315 yards and 18 scores.
