Texas A&M lineman Jared Hocker promises upset of Clemson
The Texas A&M Aggies will be underdogs when they head to Death Valley to take on the Clemson Tigers Saturday, but one of their players sees an upset coming.
Offensive lineman Jared Hocker confidently predicted Monday that the Aggies will knock off top-ranked Clemson in their pivotal early-season battle.

It’s certainly a bold prediction. There’s some reason to believe it’s not completely silly to think, too. The Aggies are ranked 12th in the nation, and they only lost by two to Clemson last season. That said, that game was at home for Texas A&M, and they won’t have that luxury Saturday.
There’s another key difference from last year’s game that the Aggies will have to cope with. At that time, Clemson still used Kelly Bryant as their starting quarterback. He was being pushed by freshman Trevor Lawrence, who took over not long after and the rest is history. Lawrence will provide a new dimension Texas A&M hasn’t seen before.
