No. 16 Texas A&M at No. 15 Mississippi State Saturday, 12 p.m. ESPN Line: Texas A&M -7 With both Arkansas and Auburn in the midst of major turnover, the No. 3 spot in the SEC West is sitting up for grabs, and the two teams that seem most likely to take it (Mississippi State and Texas A&M) will play this weekend. For the winner, it’ll put them in the clear position as third best team in this division behind Alabama and LSU, a spot no one thought either would reside in as recently as a few months ago. Simply put, this isn’t just a huge game for the 2012 season, but the future of these two programs as well. So who’ll have the edge when Texas A&M’s high-powered passing attack goes against the experienced defensive backfield of Mississippi State?

No. 16 Texas A&M, No. 17 Miss. St.
