That’s a late kickoff for Miami fans in the Eastern time zone, but it’s 8 p.m. local time in College Station.
Miami opened as a 9-point underdog against the Aggies, according to FanDuel. However, ESPN’s FPI model favors Texas A&M by just 0.5 points on a neutral field.
Miami has big expectations for this season, and putting together a good performance in College Station would indicate a strong start. Key players like Tyler Van Dyke and Will Mallory are back, while the Hurricanes also added players like Akheem Mesidor and Frank Ladson via the transfer portal.
Expectations are also higher after bringing in Mario Cristobal to replace Manny Diaz. Cristobal was able to put together an impressive staff that includes Charlie Strong, Kevin Steele and Josh Gattis.
Miami and Texas A&M will meet on Sept. 17.
