What you need to know about the Texas A&M vs. Arizona State online live stream and TV broadcast, as well as preview and predictions.
Arizona State has a chance to make an early national statement for both the program and Pac-12 when the Sun Devils travel to Houston to face the Texas A&M Aggies. The matchup has been overshadowed by the other heavyweight season openers – Alabama vs Wisconsin, Louisville vs Auburn, and Notre Dame vs Texas – but make no mistake, it’s a game that will have a big impact on the college football landscape this year.
Todd Graham is looking to make it three straight 10-win seasons for the Sun Devils, while Kevin Sumlin hopes to stop the regression he’s experienced in each of his three seasons in College Station. The SEC West is, well, the SEC West, so Sumlin will need to pick up out-of-conference victories if the Aggies want to reach double-digit wins.
The game will also be the coming out party for new Texas A&M defensive coordinator John Chavis, who made the move from LSU this past offseason. It’ll be interesting to see how Chavis fares against Arizona State’s reworked attack, and vice versa.

Texas A&M vs. Arizona State Predictions
Expect plenty of scoring plus a seesaw battle equals one of the most entertaining matchups of the opening weekend.
Texas A&M and Arizona State will trade blows like heavyweight boxers, with both quarterbacks ringing up big numbers. The Aggies, though, will have the edge in pass catchers and pass rushers. Their receivers will be virtually unstoppable on the receiving end of Allen’s darts, while Garrett will apply enough pressure off the edge to stunt a Bercovici-led comeback bid.
