The Florida Gators will travel to College Station, Texas, to oppose the Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday at Kyle Field.

The contest will mark the first game for the Aggies since joining the SEC during the offseason. Florida, of course, is coming off of a very uninspiring win at home over Bowling Green, 24-14.

Head coach Will Muschamp has at least cleared up the main issue with the Gators, naming Jeff Driskel the starting quarterback. After splitting time with Jacoby Brissett in the opener, Driskel won the job by playing well in the second half, completing 10-of-16 passes for 114 yards and a touchdown.

The Gators will have to be much better in this game, with Texas A&M's 12th Man wildly cheering on their team. The Aggies have had plenty of turnover on offense, with both Cyrus Gray and Ryan Tannehill having moved on to the NFL.

However, the defense is very stout, especially with an experienced line up front, giving new head coach Kevin Sumlin something to rely on.

TV: ESPN

Time: 3:30 p.m. ET

Odds: Texas A&M -2
