(Photo by Mike Comer/Getty Images)You can say at least this much about Texas A&M as they prepare to take on Clemson this weekend: They are not at all lacking confidence.Speaking to the media on Monday, Texas A&M offensive lineman Jared Hocker proclaimed that the Aggies will pull off the upset over Clemson. Texas A&M is a 17-point underdog for the road game.“There will be an upset.”Hocker was then asked to go the full Joe Namath and guarantee a victory, to which he nodded and said he was confident in his teammates.Texas A&M and Clemson faced off at College Station last year, with the Tigers securing a 28-26 win en route to a 15-0 season and the national championship. Jared Hocker is confident that the Aggies will defeat Clemson on Saturday. “There will be an upset.” pic.twitter.com/tqbVqYlAe6— TexAgs (@TexAgs) September 2, 2019In total, the two sides have faced off five times, all in the regular season. Clemson currently boasts a two-game winning streak after losing the first three games.No doubt the Tigers are planning to even up the series with a win over Texas A&M.Clemson has not lost a game since the 2017 College Football Playoff against Alabama. They are currently riding an FBS-best 16-game winning streak after beating Georgia Tech last week.Suffice it to say, the Aggies have their hands full.But the chances are, if the Tigers are even capable of losing a regular season game in 2019, this may be the most likely team they’d lose to.last_img read more
