For the first time since 2013, Texas A&M will hold a spring game.
With the completion of Kyle Field’s two-year, $450 million renovation project before last season, more than 83,000 fans will be able to take in the scrimmage, one that should reveal a lot about the 2016 team.
Maroon squad vs. White squad
Kickoff: 6 p.m. ET
Weather: 75 degrees, partly sunny
Storylines to watch
The quarterback competition is heating up
Now that former five-star recruits Kyle Allen and Kyler Murray have transferred, Texas A&M is searching for a new starting quarterback. Jake Hubenak, the Aggies’ third-stringer last year, and Trevor Knight, an Oklahoma graduate transfer with one year of eligibility, are the front runners.
The offensive line’s performance
Texas A&M’s offensive line has to replace three starters, and it’ll be interesting to see how new coordinator Noel Mazzone orchestrates that five-man unit. Also of interest will be how the Aggies’ pass protection and run blocking stand up against their stout defensive line.
How the running backs fare
One of Mazzone’s biggest tasks is to improve Texas A&M’s running game. Last year the Aggies finished eighth in rushing in the SEC (2,198 yards), 10th in yards per carry (4.4) and 11th in rushing touchdowns (13).
1 question that needs to be answered
Will A&M’s alleged culture change be evident on the field? Sumlin’s staff experienced a lot of turnover this offseason, and according to junior defensive end Myles Garrett, A&M has a new, “cranked” attitude.
